The 6th Islamic Awakening Supreme Council Meetingˈs guests included prominent Islamic scholars, and religious and political personalities from the Islamic and non-Islamic countries.

The day-long Islamic Awakening Supreme Council was held in the framework of four committees, in which such issues as pathology and present day status of the Islamic Awakening movement, problems with which the Islamic Ummah (nation) is entangled, the future outlook and exchange of opinions among the representatives of the participating countries in the Supreme Council were surveyed.

Tomorrow and the day after tomorrow (on Tuesday and Wednesday), a two-day gathering titled ˈIslamˈs Role in Geography of World Powerˈ will be held in the presence of the participants at the Islamic Awakening Supreme Council.

The two-day conference will be co-sponsored by the Iranian National Defense University.

The meeting was held under the chairmanship of former Iraqi prime minister, Ibrahim al-Jaˈfari.

Over the past few years, Iran has hosted several international conferences on the Islamic Awakening including “Islamic Awakening and Youth,” “Women and the Islamic Awakening” and “Muslim University Professors and Islamic Awakening”.

The Islamic Awakening movement, which started in 2011 in Tunisia, has swept into several other countries in the Middle East and North Africa including Egypt, Libya and Yemen, although save for Tunisia (and even there its Islamic nature has lost vigor), it has been hijacked either by the remnants of the former regimes, such as in Egypt and in Yemen, or usurped by the western powers and the Zionist regime.
