Baha’ism has Infiltrated One of Tehran’s Student Dormitories

Iranian University Student News – The student vice chancellor of the University of Quran [and Progeny] in Isfahan said, “The cultural work requires us to see the students in the campus environment but also in their dormitory environment. In one of Tehran’s student dormitories, Baha’ism has strangely infiltrated.”

In an interview with “Nasim”, Ali Abedi, referring to the university’s policies in the administration of student dormitories, [mentioned] all the female student residences in the university and said, “The dormitories of the University of Quran [and Progeny] in Isfahan are at our disposal and have not been handed over to the private sector. All our effort is to work with cultural programmes to improve the dormitory environment. The challenge that is raised by the officials in the joint meetings is the cultural and moral problems of the dormitories.”
