A video from Iran has circulated in the international media. Hundreds of demonstrators set fire to the house of the founder of the Islamic Republic, Ruhollah Khomeini, on the night of November 18.
Demonstrators set fire to a house in the city of Khomein in the Markazi district, where Khomeini, the future leader of the Islamic revolution in Iran in 1979, was born. Recently the house has been used as a museum.
The riots in Iran have been going on for more than two months, after the death of the girl Mahsa Amini – she was beaten to death by members of the vice police.
In documents and videos published in the past few days, many protesters were seen chanting “Death to Khamenei” and “Death to the Dictator”.
Simultaneously with the documents about the burning of the house of the former supreme leader of Iran, documents about the burning of the seminary in the holy city of Qom were released tonight. In recent days, it is clear that the protest has gained new strength, after 40 days have passed since the death of those who died at the beginning of the unrest.
Last week, the Iranian judiciary announced that they had now been sentenced to death seven people accused of unrest during demonstrations.
