February 11, which falls on February 10 this year, is annually commemorated across Iran to mark victory of the Islamic Revolution against Shah in 1979.
On February 1, 1979, the late Imam Khomeini- Father of the Islamic Revolution and Founder of the Islamic Republic- returned to Iran after a 15-year exile. His return led to the victory of the Islamic Revolution only ten days later. The period has been termed as Ten-Day Fajr (Dawn) in Iran.
