Vahid Saad Al-Talaba, an Iranian doctoral student at Stockholm University, was supposed to have finished his thesis today. His dissertation was talked about because he inserted a handwritten greeting in Persian where he is He praises the Iranian regime He calls people like Ayatollah Morteza Motahhari and General Qassem Soleimani martyrs.
Canceled after 30 minutes
The defense at the university was scheduled to last for three hours, and there were about 20 attendees and a number of security guards in the hall. But after less than 30 minutes, the event was cancelled. This is after Saad chose to request the production of a printed image of Qassem Soleimani, which he raised in front of the audience, which sparked intense anger in the hall.
Soleimani was the commander of the Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards and one of the most powerful figures in Iran.

– I have never seen the defense abolished, nor have I ever heard of it. I don’t know now, we have to grasp this.
A number of police officers were present at the university during the defense and entered the auditorium when the commotion broke out. Waheed Saad Al-Talaba did not justify the reason for choosing to display the photo, but according to Saad Al-Talaba, Morteza Motahhari and Qassem Soleimani are heroes who should be celebrated.
Soleimani is like a father to me, like a brother. He saved my country, so why not dedicate it to him,” Saad Taleb previously told SVT Nyheter.
The defense has been postponed and it is not clear when it will resume.
SVT Nyheter was in touch with Wahid Saad Taleb on Friday, who at the moment does not want to make any comments.
