141 Ruhollah Khomeini

Ruhollah Khomeini (1900-1989) became the face of the revolution upon his return from exile in February 1979 and remained the main source of legitimacy for Iranian leaders after his death as well. Despite the many differences, his position came to resemble that of Atatürk in Turkey, with whom he had in common an emphasis on national unity and support for radical government intervention. The likenesses of the two were omnipresent as well.
