Khamenei and speed-reading!

Ali Mohammad Besharati, Iranian politician

[Ali Mohammad Besharati, the Iranian politician, talks about Iranian supreme leader Ali Khamenei’s speeding reading ability!]

Besharati: Let me tell you. As for those viewers who already know, that’s fine. And those who don’t, they must know that Agha [Ali Khamenei] has had a speed reading course. Therefore, he can read a 300-page book overnight.


Besharati: And more interesting is that he can find its faults – even the typos!


Besharati: Yes. He doesn’t look at books as embellishments. There was this shelf which was full of Qurans. He once told me, Mr. Besharati, I have read all these Qurans.
