TEHRAN – Ali Khomeini has said Velayat-e Faqih (guardianship of the Islamic jurist) should be promoted as a modern principle.

Speaking before Qom Friday prayers, he said doing so will counter enemies in their efforts to convey that the late Imam Khomeini did not suggest the jurist’s guardianship, the Ressalat newspaper reported.

The guardianship of the jurist was among the maxims of the Ashura event, he underlined, adding that Imam Khomeini structured the backbone of the Islamic revolution in the model of Ashura.
