During the intimate meeting which took about 210 minutes initially eleven political, scientific and student activists on behalf of the student bodies, unions, and associations took some 150 minutes to present their various viewpoints regarding different issues in the country.
Imam Khamenei while replying to the presented questions, and clarifying on the proposed ambiguities, considered political, scientific, ethical, and spiritual idealism as the most important expectation of the student bodies in general, and then presented a series of musts and must not’s regarding the critical moderate, just, and hopeful approaches regarding the country’s affairs.
The Supreme Leader referred to some of the matter presented by the students, which he said were very well presented and inclusive of some very useful points, which the concerned officials must pay serious attention to.
Regarding the cases in which the Judiciary Force has summoned some weblog and website authors to courts of justice, the Supreme Leader said that the judiciary officials have their reasoning, which would solve some ambiguities if it would be presented to the society, adding, "But I believe harsh encounter regarding the expressed opinion of a young university student is not appropriate.”
Regarding the justice seeking economic approach and Islam’s viewpoints regarding capitalism, which were elaborated by a student, His Eminence said, "Of course the economic approach in the country must be justice based, and this has no contradiction with implementation of Constitutional Article 44 (on privatization).
Imam Khamenei considered the "resistance economy”, which has been recently proposed by His Eminence to counter the western imposed sanctions and pressure, different with the aggressive economy, which was proposed by a student, suggesting that a precise analysis on it would be presented, which might be used as a complement for the resistance economy.
His Eminence reiterated that the resistance economy is not a defensive and segregation economy, but an economy for a nation that wants to pass through tough times and sanctions, and simultaneously pave its path for national blossoming and prosperity.
Imam Khamenei all the same stressed that in criticizing care should be taken not to move in line with the enemy. A student had asked whether technical viewpoints that differ with the viewpoints of the Supreme Leader should necessarily be considered blasphemous. The Supreme Leader rejected the idea, emphasizing, "Such ideas are credible for their owners, and should not be considered as opposing the Islamic system.”
Addressing millions of university students across the country, Imam Khamenei proposed that today studying well, acquiring scientific knowledge, doing serious research works and being serious in academic studies is a kind of holy war, Jihad.
Imam Khamenei proposed the students not to say what they are not certain about, not to speak behind the back of the others, and not to accuse the others baselessly.
