Hashemi Rafsanjani’s funeral


President Rouhani sent a message to the people of Iran, appreciating them for taking part in late Ayatollah Hashemi Rafsanjani’s funeral ceremony on Tuesday.


President Rouhani’s message is as follows:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Noble and intelligent people of Iran,

Your attentive and appreciative presence in the funeral of Ayatollah Hashemi Rafsanjani, who was a selfless servant of people and the revolution, as well as a loyal companion to Imam [Khomeini] and the Supreme Leader, marked another magnificent page in the glorious history of Iran and displayed solemn national unity before the eyes of the world.

Words cannot express appreciation towards your presence and support and the government considers more effort in serving the people and more firmness in continuing along the path of moderation and abstaining from extremes –which was believed and exercised by the late warrior in the way of the right- as a way to appreciate your massive presence.

Hassan Rouhani

President of the Islamic Republic of Iran
