Enqelab va nezam dar buteye Naqd-e Akhlaqi (Testing the Revolution and Regime with Ethical Criticism: Ayatollah S. Muhammad Rouhan, Slander and Authority),

Book (Monograph)

Ayatollah Seyyed Mohammad Rouhani [1920-97] was one of the best-known opponents of Ayatollah Khomeini and the Islamic movement between 1965-1977 at the Najaf Seminary. In the first five years in Najaf, he was the main force in imposing pressure and restrictions on the exiled marja’ and the combatant clergies around him. In August 1970 and June 1971, some of Ayatollah Khomeini’s companions also defamed Ayatollah Rouhani with three unsettling fabrications, stripping Ayatollah Rouhani away from his position of service.The book tried to examine the mutual interactions between S. Mohammad Husseini Rouhani and S. Ruhollah Mousavi Khomeini’s offices during the 1960s and 1970s in Najaf; the Islamic Republic’s confrontation with Ayatollah Rouhani from 1978 to 1992; and factors that contributed to the prohibition placed on Ayatollah Rouhani’s marja’iyat in the 1990s (1992-1997).
