Grand Ayatollah Montazeri questions the election
Posted by iranrevolution on June 17, 2009
I am sure that I am not the only person who has ever thought what if Ayatollah Montazeri had kept quite for a few more months and had become the supreme leader? Perhaps he would have turned out to be just like Khamenei when in power. But perhaps he would have scaled down his role and let democracy to take a hold in Iran. Judging by everything he has done since being politically demoted, I put my money on the second guess.
One thing is for sure though. Religiously he ranks far higher than the supreme leader and therefore what he says is of great importance to the man on the street in Iran. He has now officially questioned the election results. You can find his Persian message on his official web site and an English translation posted on this blog.
