Leader to receive people from Qom

TEHRAN, Jan. 09 (MNA) – The Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei will receive thousands of people from Qom province today morning in Tehran.

The meeting will be held on on the occasion of the uprising of the people of Qom against the Pahlavi regime on January 9, 1978; a landmark protest which was in response to an article published in Ettela'at newspaper, insulting the founder of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khomeini. Many believe that this demonstration was the start of a wave which ended Pahlavi regime one year later. 

Further details and photos of the meeting will soon be published.
