In the meantime, the President of the University of Tabriz announced that they are going to use a new software which controls girl students who do not properly observe their hijab and covering.
Mohammad Reza Pour Mohammadi said, “This software will introduce to the professors, those students who have problems with virtue and veil. If these students continue to fail in this respect, the issue will be brought up with their parents and subsequently with the university’s disciplinary committee.” (The state-run Mehr news agency – September 21, 2016)
