Iran: Arrests Made For Western Influence in Hair and Outfits

 

This week Iranian police came down on 'satanic' clothing and hair cuts. Satanic clothing and haircuts is described as having western influence. 5 barber shops were closed and 20 were warned about promoting western style haircuts and 49 were arrested.

The 49 were called rascals and thugs by the city police commander of Qaemshahr for wearing these 'satanic fashions and unsuitable clothing.' Men with spiky hair and women in tight pants and high boots were targeted.

Iran's leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, suggested that the western influence on the Iranian youth is part of a soft revolution meant to corrupt cultural ideals. These type of crackdowns normal last a week or a month, but the current one began in 2007.

  Agreed  
 
If they have the right to label anything "Western" as satanic and illegal, then their as bad of hypocrites as us Westerners. Guess they got to drop that satanic nuclear plant. Ahmadinejad wears evil western suits. If we all dropped idealistic religious beliefs there would be a lot less bloodshed in the world!

Westerners don't have a monopoly on hypocrisy.

  Correct.  
 
I believe the human race does though.

Just to let you know, the word "khaki" comes from the Farsi (Iranian language) for "dirt-colored," describing the PANTS they wore/wear. Also, the word "pajama" comes from Farsi. Also, the man who INVENTED the scientific method, happened to be Iranian--living in Iran during the years Iran was under Arabic rule. I could go on and on...

And I certainly hope I don't have to teach you guns/gunpowder came from China, you know, in the EAST. Don't be so quick to assume that all technology came from the West.

And also, don't be so quick to assume a nation is backwards just because of a stupid government and president. Hell, by that standard, what does that say about the US with the election of Bush--TWICE?

Bottom line, shit happens. Idiots run amok no matter where you look. It's just damn annoying to constantly see the negatives of a people highlighted in the news.

  Yeah  
 
this is a backward Nation, but the top award for Backward Nation, goes to the Nation who called in a helicopter gunship because someone was wearing low cut jeans. Then he goes to Court and gets Judged by a drunk with a Penis Pump under his royal robes.

  It's all about control  
 
Only one man to dictate what's good and what's evil and people believe in what he says without question! This is dictatorship in a religious way. Religion can be manipulated in many ways to suit your agenda.

  You really think this is bad?  
 
If you were caught doing something similar in DPRK, not only would they go after you, they'd haul your entire family off to some gulag where they'd literally be worked to death.
