The Leader of Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, has referred to strenuous efforts of the enemies to somehow dissuade the Iranian nation, especially youths, from the path of Jihad and martyrdom.
The Leader of Islamic Revolution also mentioned the pointless efforts of the foes to erase the memory of the Founder of Islamic Republic of Iran, late Imam Khomeini (May his soul rest in peace) from the minds of the Iranian nation, while pointing out that under these circumstances, the devotion of innumerable youths toward the revolutionary concepts is highly astonishing.

In further remarks, the Leader of Islamic Revolution mentioned the glorious and unprecedented participation of people in the funeral procession of this elevated martyr, while reminding that God, via the courageous and selfless efforts of Martyr Hojaji, endeared and honored the Iranian nation, and turned him into an epitome of the young, revolutionary generation, and the current miracle of the Islamic Revolution.
While mentioning the popularity of Martyr Hojaji across Iran because of his courageous efforts and innocent martyrdom, the Leader of Islamic Revolution added: All martyrs are innocent. In addition to Martyr Hojaji, there are other martyrs who were beheaded by the enemies. All of them are endeared by God Almighty. Meanwhile, God Almighty, based on His prudence, and the characteristic traits of this youth, turned Martyr Hojaji into the representative and spokesman of these martyrs.
Furthermore, the Leader of Islamic Revolution underlined all martyrs from Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, and other regions, who courted martyrdom in the struggle against Takfiri operatives, are embodied by Martyr Hojaji, and God turned him into the symbol of innocent and courageous martyrdom.
In another part of his remarks, the Leader of Islamic Revolution pinpointed the family of this martyr, officials, and the entire Iranian nation are indebted to the courageous and Jihadi efforts of Martyr Hojaji, while praising the prominent role of this martyr's parents and wife, and adding that although the absence of this martyr is difficult for his family, the honor which God granted to this country through Martyr Hojaji, will console and calm down the family members of this martyr.
Furthermore, the Leader of Islamic Revolution underscored that May God hail and laud this honorable and elevated martyr, who in the most sensitive and critical moments of his life, became the epitome of victory of righteousness against falsehood."
