IRDC.IR: the circulation of the news of Imam Khomeini (RA)’s xe "a:Imam Khomeini"return to Iran created a wave of excitement and happiness among the whole Iranian nation.
following the return of Imam Khomeini (RA), xe "a:Imam Khomeini"revolutionary forces pursued their objectives more steadfastly than before and extended the scope of their movement. Upon Imam Khomeini (RA)’s xe "a:Imam Khomeini"accommodation in the Refah School, this school became the major source of authority and power in Iran.
As a matter of fact, the prime minister’s office was marginalized and substituted by this school. Even the regime’s agents were more obedient to the orders received from the Refah School rather than those of the prime minister’s office. People were swarming towards the Refah School in order to meet their leader as a result of which this school was transformed to a center for the maneuvers of revolutionary forces against the regime.
People were so interested in meeting their leader that prime minister had ordered police and security forces to withdraw up to a radius of 1 kilometer from the Refah School.
The regime’s loss of control over the mass media, especially the state radio and television, was the acme of Imam Khomeini (RA)’s xe "a:Imam Khomeini"triumph and failure of xe "a:Bakhtiar"Bakhtiar’s government. Government employees, especially the Air Force personnel, expressed their solidarity with the revolution. It was an indication of the regime’s impending defeat. Socially speaking, people did their best in order to handle their routine affairs without any dependency on the government and governmental organs. After Imam Khomeini (RA)’s xe "a:Imam Khomeini"return to the country, people were endeavoring to settle their problems through devotion and affection.
The regime forces and agents were gradually withdrawing from administrative affairs of the country. They either joined the revolution or declared their neutrality.
The power vacuum was immediately filled by revolutionary forces and they began to run the routine administrative affairs of the country. After Imam Khomeini (RA)’s xe "a:Imam Khomeini"return to the country, there were actually two major developments that accelerated the victory of the Islamic Revolution: establishment of the interim government and the oath of allegiance to Imam Khomeini (RA) by xe "a:Imam Khomeini"military forces.
