Tehran, Sept. 1: Iran’s Pres­i­dent on Mon­day urged the coun­try’s cler­ics 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.

“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.
