Navideshahed: Senior Advisor of the Iranian Supreme Leader for International Affairs Ali Akbar Velayati stressed that the regional movements which have risen against the tyrannical rulers of their countries are striving for the revival of their Islamic identity.

"Fighting the aggressive systems and the world arrogance, materializing the rights of the Palestinian nation as well as reviving and strengthening Islamic identity are the demands of Islamic movements in the region," Velayati said, addressing the International Conference on the Islamic Awakening and the Youths in Tehran on Sunday.

"The most important feature of the recent developments in the Islamic world is the anti-autocracy nature of such developments and uprisings," he said.

Velayati pointed to the recent popular uprisings in different regional and Islamic countries, and said participants in such Islamic movements want to save the Muslims from poverty, resolve social and economic problems and move towards progress.

The International Conference on the Islamic Awakening and Youths started work here in Tehran on Sunday morning with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in attendance.

Over 1,200 young people from Iran as well as 73 other world countries are participating in the two-day gathering.

The first ever conference on the Islamic Awakening was held in September 2011 in Tehran with 700 scholars and thinkers from the Islamic world in attendance. Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Ali Khamenei attended the meeting as well.

Since the start of 2011, the region has witnessed a growing wave of popular protests resulted from the people's growing awareness and vigilance.

Tunisia saw the overthrow of Zine El Abidine Ben Ali in a popular revolution in January, which was soon followed by a revolution which toppled Hosni Mubarak in Egypt in February.

Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Libya have since been the scene of protests against their totalitarian rulers, who have resorted to brutal crackdown on demonstrations to silence their critics.

While Libya celebrated the victory of its revolution after the death of the country's dictator, Muammar Qaddafi, in October, uprisings continue in several other Muslim states.
