Before the Islamic revolution, theories of revolution for overthrowing the governments were focusing mostly on violent methods, while the Islamic revolution was base on unity of the people. The Islamic revolution of Iran as a civilizing revolution, besides introducing the cognition of Islam and its intellectual logics to natioans, was able to plan and introduce its roles and aims, considering features such as anti-colonialism, supporting the oppressed and self-reliance, against international peace. This revolution besides providing a meta-narrative and metadiscourse based on the ideas as justice, dependence and freedom which all rooted in ontological approach and Islamic beliefes and sprituality, was able to establish positive peace which infact means establishing a socio-human system. This system included the lack of use of
