A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on June 2

Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Thursday and picked headlines from 20 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

On the 27th demise anniversary of the late founder of the Islamic Republic Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, almost all Iranian newspapers on Thursday extended condolences over the occasion, and published reports about Imam Khomeini’s life and struggles.

On the same occasion last night, the state TV, IRIB, invited Imam Khomeini’s grandson Hassan Khomeini to a live TV program. Many Iranian media covered his remarks, including his criticism of those who were dogmatic in the past and are now considered as criteria for knowing good and bad.

He also slammed the ban on certain figures [presumably ex-President Mohammad Khatami] and said such moves are ridiculous. However, probably because of the same ban [!], no Iranian newspaper covered the remarks.

The consequences of the Iranian Parliament’s governing board elections and the shares of each faction in the new Parliament also remained as top stories on Thursday.
