The plan of the Islamic government based upon Velayat al-Faghih, as proposed

Islamic Justice: Firing squad
height of the period of repression and strangulation practiced by the despotic
regime, produced a new specific, and streamlined motive for the Muslim people,
opening up before them the true path of Islamic ideological struggle, and
giving greater intensity to the struggle of militant and committed Muslims
both within the country and abroad.
The movement continued on this course until finally popular dissatisfaction
and intense rage of the public caused by the constantly in- creasing repression
at home, and the projection of the struggle at the international level
after exposure of the regime by the 'ulama' and militant students, shook
the foundations of the regime violently. The regime and its sponsors were
compelled to decrease the intensity of repression and to "liberalize"
the political atmosphere of the country. This, they imagined, will serve
as a safety valve, which would prevent their eventual downfall. But the
people, aroused, conscious, and resolute under the decisive and unfaltering
leadership of the Imam, embarked on a triumphant, unified, comprehensive,
and countrywide uprising.
The Wrath of the People The publication of an outrageous article meant to malign the revered
'ulama' and in particular Imam
Khomeini on 15 Day, 1356 [January 7, 19781 by the ruling regime accelerated
the revolutionary movement and caused an outburst of popular outrage across
the country. The regime attempted to quell the volcano of the people's anger
by drowning the protest and uprising in blood, but the bloodshed only quickened
the pulse rate of the Revolution. The seventh-day and fortieth-day commemorations
of the martyrs of the Revolution, like a series of steady heartbeats, gave
greater vitality, intensity, vigour, and solidarity to this movement all
over the country.
In the course of this popular movement, the employees of all government
establishments took an active part in the effort to overthrow the tyrannical
regime by caging a general strike and participating in street demonstrations.
The wide-spread solidarity of men and women of all segments of society
and of all political and religious factions, played a clearly determining
role in the struggle. Especially the women were actively and massively
present in a most conspicuous manner at all stages of this great struggle.
The common sight of mothers with infants in their arms rushing towards
the scene of battle and in front of the barrels of machine-guns indicated
the essential and decisive role played by this major segment of society
in the struggle.
