He not only turned down the Shah’s regime, but also inherited his unique legacy characterizing cultural identity and remained a symbol of resistance within the international arena. Since, the political aspect is most bearing issue to the founder of Iran’s Islamic revolution. Therefore, desirable Islam from our revolutionary point of view encapsulating the pragmatic Islamic revolution capable of achieving sovereignty which could best be defined as political Islam. However, the political approach of the Islamic Revolution is not unique to the Islamic Republic of Iran. In recent decades, we have witnessed different kinds of political Islam: political Islam in Turkey- liberal Islam, politically conservative Saudi Wahhabi, fundamentalist, political Islam (Taliban) in Pakistan and Afghanistan, political Islam perceivable in Malaysian economy and Islamic terror practiced by ISIL .Despite the common trait of political Islam , theoretical and practical manner of political Islam in Iran’s Islamic Revolution is fundamentally different in comparison with other types of political Islam mentioned earlier.

Hence, the study is a “descriptive - Meta analysis “ bases its substantiation on valid documents and comparative approach. Methods are also being carried out in a way that after introduction and definition of violence and their different theoretical perspectives, the roots of violence are investigated.
