Daneshjou, who has been accused of Plagiarism and fabricating some of his credentials, was the head of the Election Headquarters during the disputed presidential elections in June 2009

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.
