Islamic Association of Amir Kabir University Students condemned the arrest of Majid Tavakoli and expressed their full support for him despite state efforts to ridicule him.

State media published images of Majid Tavakoli claiming that he was trying to escape the campus "dressed as a woman." Amir Kabir student association claims these reports merely reveal the "dictatorship's fury" against Majid Tavakoli for his criticism of "oppression."

The statement issued by the Amir Kabir Student Association says: "The grand and widespread protests of resistant students all across the country have frazzled the lowly oppressors so they have no other recourse than dressing up Majid Tavakoli in disguise."

They maintain that Majid Tavakoli is the "pride of the student movement" and the resistance of students "be it dressed in female or male clothing" will persist until the establishment of democracy.
