Navideshahed: A two-day international conference dubbed “Islamic Awakening and Youth" has kicked off in the Iranian capital city, Tehran, attended by 1,500 young participants from 73 countries.

Secretary General of the conference, Ali-Akbar Velayati, told reporters that the conference would discuss the role of youth in the wave of Islamic Awakening which is sweeping through the Middle East and North Africa.

Reviving Islamic goals and values on the basis of Islam and Quran, restoring the national and Islamic dignity of Muslim countries, creating a new Islamic civilization on the basis of religion and rationality, the exchange of experience between freedom-seeking movements, presenting Islamic democracy as a substitute for Western democracy, and strengthening self-confidence among Muslims are among the major objectives of the conference.

This is the third such conference to be held in Tehran.

On September 17, 2011, more than 700 Muslim scholars and prominent figures from 80 countries participated in the first International Conference on Islamic Awakening in Tehran.

The conference discussed and analyzed the history and basic tenets of the Islamic Awakening as well as figures that have played a role in such movements.

The permanent secretariat of the conference was also established in Tehran headed by Velayati.

The first meeting of the central council of the International Conference on Islamic Awakening also opened in Tehran on November 10, 2011.

The two-day conference was attended by 25 prominent figures from 17 Islamic countries who discussed the latest developments regarding the popular uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa.

Since January, revolutions have swept through the Middle East and North Africa unseating dictators such as the Tunisian Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, the Egyptian Hosni Mubarak, and the Libyan Muammar Gaddafi.

Despite violent crackdowns, countries such as Yemen and Bahrain are also currently engaged in massive near-daily demonstrations against their despotic US-backed rulers.

Protests have also spread to the US and Europe, where demonstrators are braving police brutality to participate in rallies against capitalism, corporatism, and austerity cuts.
