We are in the Basij week. Imam Khomeini (God’s mercy upon him) issued the formation of Basij volunteer forces on November 26, 1979. This order clearly showed the Imam’s foresightedness as no war had been waged yet. At that time, saboteurs and insurgents would instigate chaos and terrorist acts in the country with the support of foreign powers, especially the US. Imam Khomeini, who always relied on people’s power, called on them to come to the scene again to thwart the threats.
