Gravely concerned of Tehran University students using this opportunity to hold anti-regime protests, Iranian regime authorities had previously made arrangements to prevent the students from entering the conference halls.
When Rouhani was in the Tehran University conference hall one female college student was seen shouting: “Why didn’t you provide permission for the students to enter the hall?”
The situation can be described as very tense in Iran.
