How ironic that around the world, including the USA and Canada, that the Muslim Students Association campaigns and agitates on behalf of radical Islam while in Iran it agitates for freedom.

Tehran, 25 April (AKI) - Students who have been occupying the University of Shiraz in southern Iran for three days have ended their protest. More than 8,000 students had been occupying the campus to protest against the new rules laid down by the rector on womens’ garments, the hours of access to the dormitories and political activity within the university. The rector, Mohammed Hadi Sadeghi, was forced to back down, apologising to the students and accepting all 11 of their demands. They had given a three week deadline for the rector to make good on the promises.

And here........
“The protests were triggered by a new code of conduct banning the students from wearing shorts and sleeveless vests outside rooms in their strictly segregated dormitories and an extended curfew of 11:00 pm to 5:00 am

The students are also no longer allowed to have visitors in the dorms, and the wardens can carry out random checks in the rooms, the reports said.”

“The daily said protests have intensified after the recent detention of students from Mazandaran University in north Iran.

Iranian news agencies reported on April 15 and 16 that 15 students from Mazandaran University had been detained in connection with suspensions, a protest and a previous arrest.”
