Iranians celebrate 40th anniversary of Islamic Revolution

TEHRAN, Feb. 11 (MNA) – Millions of Iranians have started the nationwide rallies to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution, which marks the overthrow of the Pahlavi dynasty.

People from all walks of life rally in different cities and towns across Iran each year to celebrate the nation’s victory that put an end to the monarchical rule of the US-backed Pahlavi regime.

Each year on the 22nd day of the month of Bahman on the Persian calendar (11th of February), Iranians turn out in ceremonies attended by high-ranking officials to renew their allegiance to the Islamic establishment and Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic.
