NCRI – March 15, 2013 – Iranian regime’s science minister Kamran Daneshjoo has said he wants to impose gender segregation on all universities in the regime.
Daneshjoo told Iran’s state-run television he was committed to abolishing all mixed-sex higher education in the country.
Currently there were 26 segregated universities in Iran, made up of 11 female establishments and 5 male ones that are non-profit and 10 others that earn profit , the minister said on March 12.
He added: “My priority is to make the universities ‘Islamic’ and I will act on my commitment after the elections.
“I had already handed my proposals to the president and he had accepted them. I am still committed to this responsibility.”
He also said Iranian universities had become tainted by western values, which were now being duplicated in Iran, but ‘without considering the social relations inside our country’.
