Head of Iran–Filipino Society talks about some of the most prominent characteristics of Imam Khomeini (RA):

From idealism of Imam Khomeini (RA), his vision and works to the role of his personality in leading and advancing the Islamic Revolution

Henelito A. Sevilla said I always look into idealism of Imam Khomeini (RA) as a humble religious scholar who lived in simplicity, in my venture for better understanding of complexities of life as a person and scholar on Middle East.

According to Public Relations Department of Islamic Culture and Relations Organization 9ICRO) and as reported by Iranian Cultural Mission to Manila,  Henelito Sevilla, an Associate Professor at the University of the Philippines, Asian Center and President of the Philippine-Iran Cultural and Scientific Society (Friendship council ), based in Manila, while talking about his joyful stay in Iran as university student and visiting  the shrine of the late Imam Khomeini (RA), said Imam Khomeini"s idealism, his works and his vision to have a world far away from injustices and where everyone and every nation has to be respected and treated equally no matter how big or small, no matter what status they have in life, and no matter what race they belong to , are important lessons I have heard and learn from him.

The Associate Professor at the University of the Philippines Asian Center said as I always look into this idealism in my venture for better understanding of complexities of life as a person, scholar on Middle East, and as an individual, It seemed therefore that I have met him.

Influence of prominent personality of Imam Khomeini on the world

Talking about Imam Khomeini (AR) as an international personality, the Filipino professor said Imam Khomeini (RA) was s a humble religious scholar who lived in simplicity and who had accepted his fate during his time for the sake of truth and justice for his own nation-Iranian nation. 

He went on saying that in spite of being political exile abroad, he maintained his personal composure by helping Iranian people to emancipate them from a corrupt and ugly images of governance and policies which had dominated in the economic, political, security, and socio-cultural wellbeing of Iran during his time.

Professor Henelito Sevilla, talking about the Islamic Revolution lead by Imam Khomeini and his role on awakening of Islamic world said  his call for an Islamic Revolution was made not from a conventional way in which tanks and bullets defined people"s protests but that of a soft, bloodless and peaceful one advanced the cause of the Islamic Revolution.

 His use of cassette as a critical mode of informing and teaching his countrymen reverberated in various areas in the country that even people in a small villages would be able to listen to his teachings. While his was in exile, Imam Khomeini did not stop from his traditional role as an Islamic scholar and a clergy. Indeed a significant source of inspiration to his people and to those who followed his works and thoughts, added the Head of the Iran-Filipino cultural and scientific Society.

Referring to the extent which Imam Khomeini"s personality impressed the world, Mr. Henelito A. Sevilla said  exiles of Imam Khamenei from Iraq to France, his returned to Iran and his continued works and opposition to the injustices that many Iranian experience from the hands of the Pahlavi"s regime as well as that from foreign countries who exploited and exerting influence on Iran"s political, economic, and security wellbeing,  were few critical  selling points of his impressive  personality to be given attention not just by his own countrymen but by many scholars and leaders in the world arena.

 Professor Sevilla said while Imam Khomeini personified a living figure that could unite his own  nation from decades of mismanagement , he had also brought an important message of hope for  the Muslim Ummah as well as non-Muslim nations and communities  who suffered the same fate with  Iran, such as countries in Africa and Asia.

 In addition, Imam also carried a serious message to world leaders both in East and the West that the power of the people coupled with their faith to God can shake governments if they continue to remain anti-people and remain blindfolded from the emerging demand for change of the majority of the people they govern.

 Finally he said, the triumph of the Islamic Revolution in 1979 and the succeeding official establishment of the Islamic Republic of Iran through peaceful means, certainly caught the attention of the world on Imam"s impressive personality.
