Translating Imam Khomeini’s works and other works about him to diﬀerent languages is also among the programs of this institute. Imam Khomeini is a great eﬃcacious figure who is the founder of a religious government in this current modern society; a government, which in comparison with other religious readings, has the elements of intellectuality and logic and despite the strains and numerous limitations, has managed to stay firm on his own feet for some decades. The current world is tired of materialistic issues and is seeking ways to reach spirituality and the main motif of the young people in the western countries for becoming interested in extremist and terrorist groups and joining them is this reason. Therefore, the reason for showing interest by the none-Iranian in Imam Khomeini’s outlook, thoughts, ideas and positions, is the new mutation of west for reaching prosperity and spirituality.
