Millions of Iranians across the country have taken to the streets to celebrate the 31st anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution.

On this day back in 1979, the Iranian nation toppled the US backed Pahlavi regime, ending millennia of monarchy in Iran.

The Islamic Revolution — under the guidance of its founder, late Imam Khomeini — brought a new political system based on Islam and democracy.

Huge demonstrations were held all across the nation on Thursday to mark the occasion.

In the capital Tehran, an extraordinarily high number of people from all walks of life marched across the city and gathered at Azadi (Freedom) Square to take part in the festivities. They were carrying banners denouncing the enemies of the country.

Meanwhile, reports say Chairman of the Assembly of Experts Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani and former President Mohammad Khatami attended the rallies in Tehran.

A few hundred of supporters of Iran's defeated presidential candidates also rallied in Tehran.

Supporters of Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi gathered in a western Tehran district.

Police had stepped security in the area to prevent possible disturbances. Defeated presidential candidate Mehdi Karroubi was seen among the protesters.

Iran's Council for the Coordination of Islamic Propagation also issued a resolution on behalf of Iranian demonstrators, declaring their stance to the world.

The statement says the Iranian nation has renewed its allegiance to the ideals of Imam Khomeini and the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.

It declared that protecting the Islamic establishment and supporting the rule of the Supreme Jurisprudent is a must and a source of national unity.

The resolution added that the Iranian nation believes that acquiring peaceful nuclear technology is its legitimate right.

It also condemned those who question the results of Iran's presidential election and cause unrest in the country.

The statement called on those who have been deceived to recognize the will of the majority and return to the rule of the jurisprudent.

It further called on the judiciary to take firm action against rioters and eliminate the roots of corruption once and for all.
