Students wearing ties risk not graduating
04-Aug-2008 (3 comments)

Tehran, 4 August (AKI) - Thirty-two students who showed up to their graduation ceremony with a tie run the risk of not graduating at all. For some in Iran, the tie is considered an extreme form of western cultural contamination. Thus in many cases, wearing a tie is thought to be a form of silent resistance against the forced Islamisation of society.

Dumb and against the law

It is against the Law for the government of Iran to harass the students for wearing a tie. there are no laws in the country that states that. i hope that later they would sue.


Good for those who believe these garbages
