Tehran, Oct. 19 – Students of Iran’s Azad University in the town of Meybod demonstrated against new measures to force female students to wear the ‘Chador’ (an Islamic veil that covers women from head to toe).

The students also released a statement condemning the new ‘suppressive regulations’. Many female students have reportedly insisted that they would simply not comply. Other students are reported to have organised several sit-ins and street protests.

The new regulations call for all female students of Azad University to wear the chador on and off campus starting from the holy Islamic month of Ramadan. Officials have announced that any students that are not ‘completely veiled’ will be expelled from the university.

The university’s board announced that it had reached its decision following discussions with officials from the regime’s Ministry of Education and the local Mayor’s office.
