“A number of students gathered... claiming that morality police and security forces had entered the university” to warn students against failing to observe compulsory hijab laws, the semi-official ISNA news agency reported.

The agency reported that a vice president in charge of cultural affairs at the university had attempted to speak to the students but was “physically prevented” from doing so.

The vice president, Majid Sarsangi, denied any police or security forces had entered the university grounds.

However, he said, “two groups of students with opposing thoughts and ideals unfortunately clashed with each other while we tried to calm down the enraged students.”

We could learn a thing a thingn or two from Iran.

Why hasn't the Trump administration formed a morality-police force to police the morals of our college youth? IMO its long over-due-- so far on this issue he's been all talk and no action!

Because this is still America.

What Iran does within it own borders that have no effect on us or our allies has nothing to do with us.

Gee, you don't suppose the Iranian press would lie about this, do you?
