Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Hojatoleslam Sayyid Hussein Khomeini (born 1958 ) is an Iranian scholar and reformist cleric. He is the grandson of Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the son of Ruhollah's first son, Mostafa Khomeini. He has been a controversial figure in Iran for calling for the overthrow of the Islamic regime in Iran. Hossain Khomeini has denounced the Iranian government as the "dictatorship of clerics." In 2003 he declared Iran's reformist movement "finished," questioned the theocratic principle of velayat-e faqih, and "called for a referendum to decide how the country should be governed in the future."He has also advocated for a nonclassical interpretation of Islamic law applied in the country. His mentor is thought to be Grand Ayatollah Hossein-Ali Montazeri. However, Montazeri is against invasion of Iran and has called for withdrawal of American troops from Iraq.
