A group of members resigned from the Islamic Association of the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Tehran to protest the association's support for reformist presidential candidate Masoud Pezeshkian's election meeting on campus.

In a statement, the resigning members said that the association had resumed activities shortly before the start of the Woman, Life, Freedom protests, with the primary goal of creating an independent platform for student activities free from outside political influences.

However, the protesting members said their two years of efforts for change within the association "ultimately proved fruitless."

They cited self-interest, exclusion of individuals, prioritizing the institution over society, lack of clear principles, and overstepping boundaries as factors that undermined their endeavors.

"The recent events such as turning the complex into an election headquarters was the last necessary sign to prove the incorrigibility of this so-called 'student' institution," the statement read.

The resigning members asserted they are no longer aligned with the Islamic Association group and have withdrawn their membership in response to these events.
