Iran president urges clerics to tolerate Internet

Iran's president urged the country's clerics Monday to be more tolerant of the Internet and new technologies, which are often the target of criticism by influential hard-liners in the Islamic Republic.

 

Hassan Rouhani made the appeal during a meeting with clerics in Tehran, where he said that the Internet is important for aspiring students and experts trying to access new knowledge and science. "In today's world, one who does not know the internet and does not apply it is not called an expert even a student. ... We cannot close the gates of the world for the younger generation," he said in a speech broadcast on state television.
