Those he calls "Western regimes", in Khamenei's opinion, today "promote immorality in a more widespread and organized way even than the pre-Islamic age of ignorance."
The result according to Khomeini's successor is that "Western civilization has been transformed into the modern age of ignorance".

Several blitzes carried out by the police at gay parties and gatherings, whose participants were arrested.
