During 16th of Azar demonstrations, some pictures of Khomeini were torn. Whether this act happened because of some individuals or it was a calculated act by some segments of the movement in general, to shift focus form Khamenei to Khomeini, or it was a combination of both, is not yet clear to me at this point, however it is clear that his pictures were torn, it has been broadcasted in Iran in seda va sima, and published on paper and in electronic media. In the aftermath of what has happened; mouthpieces of the regime are calling for more violence against the protesters.
Four Islamic Student Unions announced today that there will be mourning in all university campuses throughout the country, "to condemn the violation of inviolability of the Image of the Great Founder of the Islamic Revolution."
Shiraz Seminary of Clergies (حوزههاي علميه شيراز) issued a statement, "...some internal elements of America and Israel, with rudeness, have proven their elegance to the enemies of Islam and Qur'an, and have injured the hearts of the devotees of the image of the Guardianship..." It continues to say that in solidarity with the absolute Guardianship of the Jurisconsult, the Seminary, with nationwide coordination, will go on a strike.
Ghazvin's Friday Prayer's Imam, Ayatollah Barikbin, in his last Friday's sermon, stated that "The honorable people of Iran will not tolerate these kinds of violation of inviolability (of Khomeini), and your servant in this place condemns this act, and people must respond to those responsible for this act, and they will. They have to learn from miserable Sadam that this Order is a Divine Order, and we must be united and allied so we could overcome difficulties; so foreigners would not dare to be so bold. Certainly our adolescences and youths in their gatherings must respond to these contemptuous acts."
Ayatollah Sheikh Mohammad Yazdi, the head of the Council of the Grand Society of the Theological Teachers' of the Scientific Seminary of Qum ( آيت الله شيخ محمد يزدي رئيس شوراي عالي جامعه مدرسين حوزه علميه قم), issued a prospectus declaring "...a small number of people in disguise as students, violated the inviolability of the magnificent flag-bearer of resistance against global oppression; meaning this act of insult against the Source of Emulation and the Leader Excellency of the Global Shia, His Highness Grand Ayatollah Imam Khomeini (RA) [بزرگ پرچمدار مبارزه با استكبار جهاني يعني مرجع و رهبر عاليقدر جهان تشيع حضرت آيتاللهالعظمي امام خميني(ره], has pained the hearts of dear Iranian people and the admirers of Imam Khomeini (RA) in the entire world... With the strongest condemnation of this shameful act the Society of the Theological Teachers’ of Seminary of Qum request from the responsible authorities that the instigators and the antecedents of this enormous crime must be dealt with outmost swiftness,..."
