Mousavi urges return to “collective wisdom”

6 Apr 2010

Talking in a meeting with the members of the minority faction of Iran’s parliament, opposition leader Mir-Hossein Mousavi advised Islamic Republic authorities to return to the models set up by Ayatollah Khomeini, the founder of the system, and base their policies on “collective wisdom” in order to remedy the recent events. Mousavi claimed that if in the post-election events, they had drawn upon “collective wisdom” rather than hold on to the dictates of a single faction, “we would not have witnessed such bitter incidents.”
Mousavi also condemned the actions of the country’s national broadcasting organisation Seda va Sima, saying that they are “destroying the doctrines of the Imam (Khomeini)” which has led to a “wrong and incomplete understanding of Ayatollah Khomeini”, the leader of the Revolution, by the country’s youth. He added: “In my opinion Seda va Sima and the foreign media have been acting like the two edges of a pair of scissors in distorting the luminous face of the Imam.”
Mousavi told the reformist members of Parliament that “one of the reasons for the effectiveness of the regime in the time of Ayatollah Khomeini and the ability of the country to pass through the crises of that time” was the direct connection of the people with the regime, the government and the leadership. He claimed that during Ayatollah Khomeini’s leadership, decisions were made through “rational discussions” and the Imam “provided a basis for the presence of different factions and opinions without barring anyone’s presence.”
Mir-Hossein Mousavi was highly favoured by the late Ayatollah Khomeini who chose him for the position of prime minister at the time of Iran-Iraq war (1980-1988). Experts credit Mousavi with successfully handling the country’s economy at a time of deep crisis. His attempt at returning to power in the presidential elections of June 12, 2009 were defeated by what the opposition claims to have been widespread fraud in the ballot.
