I have read about this, but want to know more about this concept. Where did this come from? Yes, I know that it was Imam Khomeini who was the first who wanted to practice (with many others) this. But this has been practiced under the Imams (a) rule also ?
But those who have criticized this, believe that the limits of the power of Wilayte Faghi is far too much..
There are many from the West and Muslims who say that this is almost the same rule as under the Shah. But this is impossible. Choosing President every 4 years, etc. But how much power is the spiritual leader?
