Condemn Islamic Republic for causing insecurity in Zahedan University and attacking students
I am writing to let you know that in recent days, people from outside the university of Zahedan have attacked the students of this University with knifes and they carried weapons too. On November the 9th, people from outside university entered the university after coordination with security officers of university and attacked students with knifes. On November the 11th, individuals armed with knifes and weapons entered the university and attacked an undergraduate student with 6 stroke of knifes. Mentioned student is hospitalized right now and is in a grave situation.
Thousands of students protested this situation with a protest gathering and this was met by threats of security forces. Zahedan University is currently being run by intelligence and security forces to stop the student’s protest and this time they are being threatened by security forces with being beaten up.
While security forces of Islamic Republic control the entrance and exit of students with lots of sensitivity we have seen that armed individuals could enter the university, attack the students and exit it without any trouble. This is not the first university that witnesses this. In the past year universities in Lorestan, Birjand and Neishaboor also faced these kinds of catastrophes. Attack of armed individuals to students in Varamin and Sabzevar universities has already led to death of 2 students.
Islamic Republic, in order to stir terror in society and prevent the expansion of people’s protests, organizes maneuvers of police forces in cities and attacks students in university.
I strongly demand you to condemn Islamic Republic for it causing insecurity and attacks to students in Zahedan University.
