Science Minister Kamran Daneshju said on Thursday those professors hold views opposed to the Islamic system will be dismissed. The minister made the remarks at a meeting with the chancellors of universities in the northern city of Behshar.
However, he said most of the academics hold views
in tandem with the principles of the Islamic system, but "anyone who cannot act
in line with the path of the revolution should leave universities."
Iran's universities need those who show their loyalty to Islam and Velayat Faqih (rule of the supreme jurisprudent) in practice, he emphasized.
On remarks voiced on the declining trend of university professors' scientific capabilities and academic credentials, he said there is sufficient number of qualified professors in Iran, so the science ministry is not "ashamed of" removing those who have divergent views.
