Iran revolution example to follow, says Egyptian scholar London, Feb 10, IRNA – The Islamic revolution in Iran over three decades ago has set an example for others to follow, according to a prominent Egyptian scholar.
“It has had an impact not only on Egypt but all over the Muslim world,” Kamal Helbawi said on the eve of the 32nd anniversary of the 1979 revolution in Iran. “It was a revolution for freedom, a revolution for dignity and for the respect and worship of God,” Helbawi said in an interview with IRNA.
With regard to Egypt, he said the current uprising was by all people, not only Islamists, seeking freedom from 30 years of oppression. Unfortunately there are “no personality like Imam Khomeini and Imam Khamenei.”
“We are with freedom now, until the people are ready to accept Islam,” the scholar and researcher said. “Christians and Muslims have no problem, the only problem is with Mubarak and the regime.”
He cautioned the Egyptian people not to accept Vice-President Omar Suleiman, saying that he was trained in intelligence and was “worse than Mubarak” and they would effectively be “accepting the CIA and Mossad to rule over Egypt.”
“Muburak should not only go but should be put on trial and spend the rest of his life in prison for accepting American hegemony and the destruction of the Egyptian economy and political system,” Helbawi said.
Helbawi previously told IRNA that the attempts to stop the revolution in Egypt will not succeed and expressed doubt that the will of the people would be broken even if the army takes over.
