Text of report from "For Your Information" column published by Iranian newspaper Jomhuri-ye Eslami web site on 14 February

A group of seminary students staged a rally in Feyziyeh Seminary of Qom last night to protest against the remarks made by the editor-in-chief of the daily Entekhab. The group, numbering about 2,000, listened to a speech delivered by one of the seminarians.

Afterwards, they began marching towards the publicity department of Qom Seminary without chanting any slogans. They presented a report to the officials of the seminary's publicity department on their protest.

The protesters believe that the published remarks made by the editor-in-chief of the daily Entekhab [Mohammad Mhammadi-Faqihi], entitled "New religious thinking, tolerance, compromise and strategy of the religious state" are evasive.

The daily Entekhab is affiliated to the publicity department of Qom Seminary.
