Prince Reza Pahlavi has called for "civil disobedience" and an "all out reconstruction" of Iran in a message addressing young Iranians on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Islamic revolution that toppled monarchy in Iran in 1979.

In the message widely published on social media, Prince Reza, the heir to the last Shah of Iran before the revolution, said that "civil disobedience is the first step toward the reconstruction of Iran."

He added figuratively that after forty years of "imprisonment of Iran," the country's reconstruction is a "new choice" for Iranians.

Reza Pahlavi's name has been frequently in the news about Iran since late 2017 and early 2018 when large groups of Iranians particularly in the religious cities of Qom and Mashad, called for the return of monarchy during nationwide demonstrations fuelled by political dissent and a deep economic crisis.
