Iran: University Female Students Rebel Against Veil

Tehran, 19 April (AKI) - Female students at Tehran Polytechnic University, where students protested against Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad during a visit last December crying 'dictator go away' and throwing firecrackers, are staging a major protest against new regulations enabling police as of 21 April to arrest women who do not abide by the Islamic dress code. A group of 700 female students organized a rally on campus and signed a letter to the dean calling the new rules "an offence to the dignity of women" and accusing him of "wanting to extend to academia the sexual apartheid imposed by the government on Iranian society."

Authorities immediately reacted on Thursday withdrawing the students' university ID cards which are mandatory to access campus and classes.

The students will now have to face a disciplinary commission which will decide whether they will be allowed to continue their studies or be expelled.

On Wednesday, Iran's police chief, Gen. Ahmad Moghaddam, said that women who do not wear the veil and don't abide by the Muslim dress code "are tools of the enemy, who tries to destroy the system by spreading a cuture which goes against Islamic values."

Re: Iran: University Female Students Rebel Against Veil

And in Western Europe muslim women beg to wear the veil. Unbelievable.

I think a revolution is not far away in Iran. It's about time. That's almost 30 years the stupid radical muslims are oppressing people there.

2000-2007: My "Kim years". My best years as a tennis fan. A few bitter losses but a lot of great matches and great wins. Thank you, Kim Clijsters!
26.03.2009: More Kim years to come!

You should send them back to places where they must wear veils.

I commend their bravery, its not like they are going to get a fair hearing. Probably be told to wear the veil or face expulsion.

The next big thing: Voegele

Yes, because Muslim women are the same person. They should all behave the same way.

Stop beating around the bush. Why should they want to wear something that's a symbol of oppression against women? They probably don't even want to live in western countries but only do so because they'd be starving in their own dirt poor countries.

What are you talking about? Hagar said that "And in Western Europe muslim women beg to wear the veil. " As if Muslim women in the West all (or even a majority of them) want to wear the veil, and in Iran and other Muslim countries they all don't want to.
