Iran’s Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance Mohammad-Mehdi Esmaeili said that the ministry will launch a festival on Martyr Soleimani.

He made the statement in an online program which was organized in the country’s southeastern province of Kerman, IRNA reported.

The minister asked the provincial officials to put this project and launching the festival on the agenda.

He also explained the important role of the province in the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

One of our main responsibilities in the ministry is to commemorate martyrs and introduce the culture of martyrdom.

Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the second-in-command of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), were assassinated in US airstrikes in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad in January 2020.

The minister clarified: “The culture of martyrdom means the culture of the revolution and the support of the ideals of resistance and anti-arrogance, all of which is within the culture of martyrdom, and all our activities must continue on this path. Therefore, if cinema, theater, visual arts, the media and other sections have any activity, it must result in the strengthening of this path.”
