Hassan Khomeini: No return to pre-Internet era

Tehran, June 3, IRNA – Seyyed Hassan Khomeini, the grandson of the Founder of the Islamic Republic, here on Monday said it is not possible to go back to the era before the Internet.
“The domain of technology is such that we cannot stand still, but we should manage it,” he said on Monday.

Every instrument like the Internet has both good and bad usages, he pointed out.

The comments came as the government of President Hassan Rouhani is encouraging online activities for Iranians.

Rouhani says Iran should embrace the Internet rather than see it as a threat.

“We ought to see (the Internet) as an opportunity. We must recognize our citizens’ right to connect to the worldwide web,” Rouhani said last month.
