Call for Papers: Annual Ayatollah Khomeini International Conference

The Annual Ayatollah Khomeini International Conference which is organized by Hawza Ilmiyya Jami Babul Ilm will be held on June 10, at Kashmir University.

The Islamic Revolution achieved a goal that was desired by the Muslim for centuries after the fall of the caliphate and penetration of the Imperial forces. Though, the revolution brought about a shift in the thinking of people around the world and ‘no-East no-West’ becomes slogan of the oppressed nations. Many people referred the Islamic Revolution as a Shiʻi religious revolution. Though, there was a centuries of intellectual and political struggle as its background, but it was a revolution of Mustadhafeen. The charismatic personality of Ayatollah Sayyid Ruhullah al-Mosawi Khomeini was a huge driving force of this revolution. Ayatollah Khomeini structured the Islamic thought in such a way that people understood the true meaning of Islamic values and associated with it to achieve emancipation. The contemporary world is divided into mustadhafeen and mustakbireen and Ayatollah Khomeini informed us about it many decades ago.
