Ayatollah Khomeini Died

By: Mir M.Hosseini

Iranians mourned the death of Ayatollah Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic revolution of Iran. He was buried at Behesht-Zahra cemetery and construction of a gigantic mausoleum began right after his death. A couple of years later his son Ahmad also died on March, 17, 1995. He represented an uncompromising face of the Islamic revolution. Khomeini was succeeded by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei as the new spiritual leader. The IRI constitution improvises a leader assigned by a special assembly of clerics as the head of the state making the republic resemble a monarchy, hence replacing democracy with theocracy.
