Commemorating the passing anniversary of late founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran Imam Khomeini; The 24th passing anniversary of the late founder of the Islamic Republic Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini was an occasion for people to recall his accomplishments especially those of forming an Islamic state and working towards justice for mankind. Addressing a large crowd of mourners, leader of Iran\\\'s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in a keynote speech said the Iranian nation would give a crushing response to the enemies with a high turnout in the upcoming presidential election. He described the election as a manifestation of the will of the nation. The leader noted that people\\\'s participation in the election indicates their confidence in the Islamic establishment. According to Ayatollah Khamenei, the enemies are seeking to portray the election as a threat to the Islamic establishment whereas the vote is in fact a great opportunity. Imam Khomeini changed the lives of Iranians and inspired people from other countries by guiding one of the greatest revolutionary movements of modern history to victory. His years of struggle against the tyranny of the US-backed Shah regime and capitalism served as a model for Muslim nations worldwide. Despite the passage of 24 years after his passing away, his thoughts and teachings still attract more people every day. Ayatollah Khomeini passed away in June 1989, eleven days after he was taken to hospital for an operation to stop internal bleeding in May. He passed away but his legacy continues to live on forever.
