Tehran, Iran, Dec. 05 – Students at Tehran University’s Faculty of Engineering held a demonstration on Monday to demand the dismissal of the university’s newly-appointed chancellor.

Ayatollah Amid Zanjani, a radical Shiite cleric with a notorious record of human rights violations when he was a religious prosecutor in the 1980s, was installed as chancellor last Sunday. Zanjani, who was appointed by the hard-line government of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has no academic background.

Zanjani’s inauguration ceremony turned into a fiasco as students abandoned classes and held a demonstration. Zanjani’s turban was thrown off during the scuffles. One of the students detained after the demonstration has been charged with “insulting the clergy”.
