AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): The Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, in a message to the conference commemorating the 'Day of Basij Professors', emphasised the responsibility and role of Basij professors in combining scientific progress and innovation with ethics.
The message is as follow:
In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
All praise is due to God, and peace and greetings be upon the Messenger of God and upon his pure Progeny.
I send my greetings to the Basiji university professors and to those participating in their Conference that is being held on the occasion of National University Professors Basij Day. I also wish to pay tribute and commemorate the memory of the scientist who struggled on the path of God, Martyr Mustafa Chamran and other martyrs from the university. The blessed influence that remains from the committed, religious, university professor who struggled on the path of God over the country’s universities is one of the greatest divine blessings, and it promises the honor and felicity of the Iranian nation in the future.
Your beneficial, advanced knowledge both in strategic, fundamental issues as well as in current, practical matters, serves the definite, immediate needs of the country. The task of a Basiji university professor is not just to teach. He/She must also bring scientific advancement, innovation both in the nature and the language of science, combine education with ethics and edification and move firmly toward the two-fold task of learning scientific breakthroughs [on the one hand] and attaining scientific authority and producing knowledge [on the other hand]. Furthermore, university professors in the fields of science have other duties of this kind as well. And you, the Basiji professors, can be pioneers and leaders in all such fields.
I ask God, the Exalted, for your success.
Sayyid Ali Khamenei
