Islamic Revolution fosters fair narration of Constitution Revolution; Hadad Adel
In his address at the unveiling ceremony of the Constitution Revolution Software, Gholamali Hadad Adel asserted that the Islamic Revolution provided the grounds for impartial, just historiography of the Constitution Revolution.
IBNA: The ceremony was held at the community hall of the Public Culture Council in the presence of Gholamali Hadad Adel, head of the Persian Language and Literature Academy, Mansour Vaezi, secretary general of the Public Libraries’ Foundation, and Mohammad Reza Akhzarian Kashani, executive manager of Namayeh Cultural Institute which provided the software program.
In his address Adel likened history to a river with no beginning. “The river has no beginning and the more you see through the further it goes on. Some stations have been assumed in its current for historiography. The Constitution Revolution can be regarded as one of the stations and links the old Iran to the modern Iran,” he said.
The Constitution Revolution was the birthday celebration of Iran’s modern era, he further added. “most of what we are going through today is the result of modernity in Iran and the Islamic Revolution would never be completely understood unless the time before that is meticulously studied so far as it was a reaction to what was going to happen in Iran. For those who may want to sketch their future, a deep understanding of the time between the Constitution and Islamic revolutions need to be obtained.”
Head of the Persian Language and Literature Academy further divided the history of Constitution into three eras: from the Constitution Revolution to Reza Khan’s time, from Reza Khan to the victory of the Islamic Revolution, and from the victory of the Islamic Revolution to the present time.
He went on to say that almost nothing serious took place under the Pahlavi dynasty about recording the Constitution’s history maybe because the regime would not want the topic become widespread in the country. The anniversary of the Constitution Revolution was celebrated during Reza Shah’s reign but no one was allowed to fathom out its roots which were contrary to the shah’s ruling nature, further added Adel.
Hadad asserted that since the victory of the Islamic Revolution the grounds have been paved for just accounts and studies on the Constitution era.
“Many manuscripts and documents about the era were published after the Islamic Revolution and still a lot remains to be released. A lot of raw materials are procured during the Islamic Revolution for research studies,” he added.
