The deputy culture minister warns that some are trying to distort revolutionary facts.

A creeping current is distorting the facts of the revolution and painting an imprecise picture of revolutionary developments in oral history books and in interviews, Mehr News Agency quoted Deputy Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance Hossein Entezami as saying Wednesday (September 17).

Speaking at the launch of a book, which is an account by cultural activists of what happened during the Islamic Revolution [of 1979], the deputy culture minister said the current in question seeks to play down the role of the founding father of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini in the revolution and put it on par with factors which pale in comparison.
