Ahmadinejad’s Iran Bans Samira’s Home Videos And ‘Unusual Make-Up’

by | 12th, November 2007

IN Iran there is much banstabation: 

Iranian police have unveiled a list of “vices” — including makeup, un-Islamic dress and decadent movies — being targeted in an ongoing moral crackdown, a conservative newspaper reported on Monday… The list was published in the Jomhuri Eslami newspaper as part of a police drive launched in April which has seen the arrest of “thugs”, raids on underground parties, seizures of satellite dishes, and street checks of improperly dressed individuals.

Wearing boots with short pants, wearing hats or scarves which do not fully cover hair and neck instead of the proper head veil and putting on unusual make-up that contradicts public chastity (is forbidden),” the list said.

“Wearing Western-style clothes and insignias of deviant groups (usually a reference to referring to Satanists or rappers),” was on the list alongside “production and distribution of decadent movies as well as private home-made videos.”

You’ve been framed…
