The full text of the appointment letter issued by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution is as follows:
In the name of Allah the most Beneficent the Merciful
All Praise be to Allah and the blessings upon His Messenger as well as upon his family. Peace be upon them all.
Entering the second forty years of the Islamic Revolution, which coincides with the beginning of the new century AH, requires a new, pathological and up-to-date look at a set of civilizational infrastructures. The culture is at the top of this setup. Indeed, culture directs all the fundamental and underlying actions of human societies; it accelerates them up or slows them down.
At present, this approach is mainly aimed to promote the view and sense of responsibility of cultural leaders, elites, and activists in various fields of the country to the category of culture and the emergence of a deep belief that culture in any part of society is the best tool for its progress and success. It is a critical tool to become independent and free from others bullying.
It also points to the vital point that the general structure of culture in all its broad parts requires revolutionary order and content. This is the only means of protecting the country's public culture from the planned cultural and media invasion of malicious foreigners.
The mission of the Supreme Council of the Cultural Revolution, from the beginning, is to organize the situation of culture and knowledge in the country and policy-making in these two categories and guide its administrators to the values and goals of the revolution. It has been a platform to meet the intellectual needs of these agencies and appear in the role of cultural headquarters.
This Council has provided valuable services in these areas. I must sincerely thank all the esteemed members who have played a role in the various periods, especially the scholars and professors who will not be present in the new Council. I ask them to continue their valuable advice to this Council.
Now, for the new term, which will begin with the publication of this letter, I will appoint the following legal and natural entities to the Supreme Council of the Cultural Revolution for the term of four years.
