Islamic Republic Day Marked

In a two-day referendum staged in late March after the early 1979 victory of the Islamic Revolution, over 98.2 percent of the Iranians voted 'yes' to the establishment of an Islamic Republic system.

The establishment of the system was in line with the popular motto of the 1979 Islamic Revolution which called for the country's "Independence, Freedom and an Islamic Republic" against the regime of Iran's last monarch Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.

Since then, the nation annually celebrates Farvardin 12, (April 1) as the anniversary of the establishment of the Islamic Republic of Iran, referred to as the Islamic Republic Day.

On February 1, 1979, the late founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, returned to Iran from a 14-year exile in Paris and the massive homecoming he received on his entry put the final nail in the Pahlavi regime's coffin.

The day marks the start of 10 days of celebrations (10-Day Dawn), that culminate on February 11 -- the anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution.

The US-backed Pahlavi regime's downfall terminated 2,500 years of monarchic rule in the country.
