The Supreme Leader’s representative in the Basij, Mohammad Reza Toyserkani, stressed the strong desire of Basij forces to play an effective role in the upcoming political arena (i.e. the elections) and added, “We are Basij and are announcing with pride that we support conservatism. There is a difference between conservatism and conservatives. Conservatism is the practical faith and commitment to Islam, to the constitution, to the value of Imam Khomeini and a practical commitment to the Velayat e-Faqih. There are enemies who expect the Basij to be neutralized, and even within Iran there are those who are trying to fan the flames in this area. This is a betrayal of Imam Khomeini, of the Supreme Leader and of the Revolution.
