Supreme Leader to deliver live speech to mark Qom's 1978 anti-Shah protest

Tehran, IRNA - Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei will deliver speech on Sunday, January 9, to mark anniversary of Qom's 1978 anti-Shah protest.

Ayatollah Khamenei used to receive thousands of people from Qom to mark the anniversary of the event, but because of COVID-19 pandemic, the Supreme Leader will deliver speech on TV.

The protest ignited a chain of protests throughout the country that eventually led to the fall of the Shah one year later.
