|Some people do not understand essence of freedom in universities: Rafsanjani||
TEHRAN – On Monday, Ayatollah Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani regretted that the place of Reza Faraji Dana was empty in the medical sciences festival of the Islamic Azad University, saying there are some “ill-minded” people in the society who do not understand the essence of freedom in universities.
Rafsanjani, the head of the Expediency Council, made this statement to show his dissatisfaction over the dismissal of Reza Faraji Dana as science minister by parliament on Wednesday.
Some MPs accused Faraji Dana of appointing some professors as university chancellors who were involved in the unrest that followed the 2009 presidential election. However, some say he was dismissed because he revealed a grant of scholarship by the previous government to some students who did not deserve it.
