TEHRAN, Sep. 27 (MNA) – Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei on Monday attended the Arbaeen mourning ceremony marking forty days after the anniversary of Imam Hussein’s (PBUH) martyrdom in the battle of Karbala.

In this ceremony, Ayatollah Khamenei in a short speech called the period of Ashura to Arbaeen as one of the most important periods in the history of Islam.

Referring to the propaganda attack of the enemies against the Iranian nation to influence public opinion with various methods and tools, he described the move to clarify the truths and realities as a beneficial tool to thwart enemies' propaganda attacks.
