The anniversary of the Iranian Revolution is celebrated on 22 Bahman, the 11th month of the Iranian calendar, which corresponds to February 11 in the Gregorian calendar. It is dedicated to the protests that led to the fall of the Pahlavi dynasty and the rise to power of an Islamic revolutionary led by Imam Khomeini. This political celebration is held on the last day of the celebration called the Ten Days of Fajr.
Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic, entered Tehran on February 1, 1979 and led an uprising across Iran that ended in victory 10 days later. The Iranian revolution of February 11, 1979 was caused by the participation of various groups of people.
The Pahlavi dynasty officially ceased to exist, and, finally, the conditions were prepared for the formation of the Islamic Republic, headed by the cleric Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. Islamic thoughts and characters played a significant role in the anti-monarchist revolution, and Khomeini called it a revolution.
On February 11, 1979, after the victory of the Iranian revolution, hundreds of soldiers and policemen marched towards the Azadi Tower. One of their demands was not to depend on the United States and the Soviet Union as the dominant powers of the time.
