KARACHI - The 19th death anniversary of Ayatullah Rohullah Imam Khomeini Musavi, the leader of Islamic revolution in Iran, is being observed in the metropolis to pay tributes to the most popular legendary leader and visionary of the 20th century. In this connection, Parwan-e-Wilayat, an organisation promoting Islamic thoughts and teaching among the youths, organised a seminar titled "the impact of Imam Khomeini's thoughts and reawakening of the Muslim Ummah" on Wednesday night at the Karachi Auditorium. More than 1,000 notables and scholars attended the seminar and Maulana Syed Jawad Naqvi, Rashid Ahad and Maulana Abbbas Waziri, principal Imam Khomeini Seminary, highlighted the philosophy of late Ayatullah Imam Khomeini.   Addressing the seminar noted scholar Maulana Syed Jawad Naqvi said that Imam Khomeini was inspired by the philosophy of the tragic incident at Karbala. He said that Imam Khomeini believed that this tragic incident would also help to inspire his nation to bring about Islamic revolution and prepare the people to confront the enemy. He said despite their power, the US government and the Shah had no way but to cede the control of the country to the revolutionary forces, led by Imam Khomeini." "Imam Khomeini believed that unlike other revolutions, the Islamic revolution should not spread through sedition, military expedition or terrorism," he said, adding the Iranian people should strive toward turning their revolution into a model for other Muslim nations. "The Islamic Revolution should reach such a level of evolution as to encourage other nations to follow the same course. It should promote Islamic teachings through defending the oppressed nations in the Islamic world, who have long been targeted by the global arrogance," Jawad Naqvi added. He further said the Islamic Revolution differs from other revolutions in the sense that it was not merely a spiritual, cultural, economic and political revolution. But indeed it was an all-out revolution with deep affiliation with Islam itself. Referring to Imam Khomeini's genius and statesmanlike handling of multiple crises, Naqvi said that in an era when many people in the world believed that Islamic teachings were no longer viable, the late Imam proved that Islam was a living and practicable code of life.
