The Annual Ayatollah Khomeini International Conference which is organized by Hawza Ilmiyya Jami Babul Ilm will be held on June 10, at Kashmir University. The Islamic Revolution achieved a goal that was desired by the Muslim for centuries after the fall of the caliphate and penetration of the Imperial forces.
