Leaders like John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King have made important contributions to the people of the United States. Name another world leader you think is important.
When it comes to leading a nation, the role of a leader has usually been the most effective or destructive part among others. Whether a country is ruled according to democratic values or not, there are always defined responsibilities for the leader. Economical status of citizens, education system, social behavior within the provincial, relationship with other nations, and security are the most important responsibilities a leader ought to consider during his/her carrier. Reza Shah and Mohammadreza Shah -as Pahlavi Monarchy- are one of the most famous leaders in the long history of Iran. To give a glance, Reza Shah took the control of Iran about 100 years ago, when our homey was so close to turning into some new countries (like what happened to the soviet union in 1991). At that point, there was no sort of security for citizens, any education structure, any acclaimed representative for Iran in the international atmosphere, or even a regulated public health system. As Reza Shah took control of Iran, one of his first actions was the establishment of a military force to protect the provincial from internal and external dangers. Since there was a huge difficulty in terms of transportation within the different parts of Iran, he built a railroad system connecting the North and South of Iran that still works. Furthermore, the first modern university of Iran -Tehran University- was established during his era. After he resigned from power, it was his son's turn, Mohammadreza Shah, to lead the country. During the first years of his monarchy, he couldn't reach any noble achievements owing to being young and inexperienced. However, as days and years would pass, he was getting more confident to pursue his desires for the rustic. In my view, the most important victory Iran reached during the last couple of hundreds of years took place in Mohammadreza Shah's years of the ruling: in the year 1954, Iran could take back the right from England to sell its oil. Moreover, establishing many universities and schools within the whole agrarian, building high-tech industries at that time, setting a hierarchy of powerful military forces to protect the country, etc were only a small part of his period. Although there is no need for any type of monarchy in this modern time of democracy, many people of Iran nowadays miss those days of progress.
