IN THE NAME OF GOD, MERCIFUL AND COMPASSIONATE
Sudden departure of Head of "Majma'e Tashkiss Maslehat Nezam" (National Exigencies Council), Ayatollah Hashemi Rafsanjani, is a disaster for the country and a loss for Islamic Revolution, without doubt.
Ayatollah Hashemi's name shines throughout history of Islamic Revolution with courage, faithfulness, sacrifice and pioneering.
He was always one of pillars of revolution, late Imam Khomainy's disciple and a faithful comrade for the Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution.
Gratefully acknowledging his efforts and services, who's eternal voyage happens to be simultaneous with anniversary of her holiness, Fatemeh Ma'asoumeh (may God's praise be upon her), I ask God, blessing, forgiveness, eminence, gathering with martyrs and Imam of martyrs for him and offer my condolences to the Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution (may God prolong his life), grateful nation of Iran, academic communities, seminaries and his family.
Finally, I ask God, realization of goals of Islamic Revolution, pride and glory of all Iranians under leadership of Supreme Leader, which was always one of late Ayatollah Hashemi Rafsanjani's wishes.
