MADRID, Dec. 7 (.) –
Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has called for a “revolutionary reconstruction of the country’s cultural system” as anti-government protests in Iran increase pressure against the authorities after several months of demonstrations, general strikes and protests, since the death of the young Kurdish woman Mahsa Amini in September.
Khamenei has called for “proper engineering” to reform Iran’s “cultural structure” through “constant vigilance and accurate knowledge of cultural weaknesses.”
“With the help of the intellectual foundations of the Revolution and active youth, that revolutionary culture and spirit can be revived once again and a great cultural movement can be created,” Khamenei said, according to the Mehr agency.
In this sense, the ayatollah has asked to provide solutions to promote “correct and progressive” statements, after “observing and acknowledging false weaknesses in various fields.”
These statements have come after there have been requests by the Iranian Prosecutor’s Office to dismantle the so-called ‘Moral Police’, while the attorney general indicated that he was reviewing the mandatory veil law.
