Hassan Khomeini, the grandson of the late leader of Iran’s 1979 Revolution Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, lashed out against Iran’s National Broadcasting Organization, Seda-va-Sima for the “distorted” portrayal of his grandfather.
In preparation for the anticipated protests on February 11, the anniversary of the 1979 Revolution, Iranian media is apparently once more engaged in antagonizing public perception of protesters.
In a letter to Ezatollah Zarghami, head of Seda-va-Sima, Hassan Khomeini accuses the network of trying to “distort” the character of the founder of the Islamic Republic in their documentary, titled “Prominent.”
The documentary which has been airing five times a day from different TV channels on the occasion of the Revolution’s anniversary focuses on comments given by the late leader of the country regarding staging demonstrations without official permits.
