From the New York Times:

[T]he mild-mannered [dean of Tunisia’s Manouba University, Habib] Kazdaghli shows little inclination to back down. He is not about to give up one of his much needed classrooms so the students can have a prayer room, especially, he said, when such facilities exist nearby. Nor is he willing to allow female students to wear veils in class, as Salafists demand.

“How can you teach a student when you cannot see her face — or give an exam when you don’t know who it is?” he said.
