Retired Iranian teacher asks pardon for what he taught

According to Mikrofonnews Agency (MHA), a retired Iranian teacher in the impoverished province of East Azerbaijan has sent a letter to the students apologizing for what he had taught to them regarding the values of life.

“ I taught you that science is better than wealth but now I take my words back as I see the educated people around me who live in misery”, said Hamdollah Noorollahi in the letter, which is circulated in the social media.

Over 20 million Iranians live under the poverty line and the situation may get worse following the reimposition of economic sanctions on Iran by the United States of America.
