The mullahnazis in Iran just won’t quit, this time threatening to deny graduation to students who dress professionally. 

 

Tehran, 4 August (AKI) – Thirty-two students who showed up to their graduation ceremony with a tie run the risk of not graduating at all.

For some in Iran, the tie is considered an extreme form of western cultural contamination.

Thus in many cases, wearing a tie is thought to be a form of silent resistance against the forced Islamisation of society.

The students, all medicine students at the University of Shirazi, were approached by university security staff as they entered the room where they would receive their diploma and asked to remove their ties.

The students refused and the families protested. After being identified, the students were threatened with “serious consequences due to their insubordination.”

Other students said at the end of the ceremony that they were told their final exams could be annulled as a form of punishment for not having removed their tie.

Serious consequences? That’s some nice islamic tolerance there, Lou.
