The state-run IRNA news agency quoted Khamenei’s representative in Isfahan defending gender segregation plans, stating that considering the number of universities, gender segregation is possible with the cooperation of officials.
“Gender segregation is a necessity for an Islamic society, and university officials across the country must take this matter into consideration,” Tabatabaie-nezhad added.
“As there is gender segregation in schools, this must be implemented in universities. This is effective for increasing learning and decreasing social damages,” he continued.
