Many Islamic scholars have said things along the lines of “there is no fun in Islam” or that Islam prohibits making mockery. Tehran police chief Hossein Sajedinia is one such Muslim who is a total sourpuss. When six Iranians (including uncovered women) made a video of Pharrell’s hit song “Happy,” Sajedinia sprung into action. He certainly could not tolerate such blasphemy as a woman’s nude head!
“After a vulgar clip which hurt public chastity was released in cyberspace, police decided to identify those involved in making that clip,” Sajedinia commented. Of course, that “vulgar clip” was just a bunch of people singing along to a top 40 song that doesn’t even have terrible lyrics. However, that was still too much for Islam to tolerate, so Sajedinia had to step in and arrest all six people who made the video. “Following a series of intelligence and police operations and after coordinating with the judiciary, all the suspects were identified and arrested,” he said. You’d think Iranian police would have more important things to do, like tracking down terrorists. But noooooooope, in Iran, crazy clerics who claim that uncovered women cause earthquakes get a free pass while the women themselves get thrown behind bars and often lashed.
The arrested citizens confessed to their “crime.” Their arrests will be among many in the years to come, as the sharia-governed nation begins to crumble beneath the creeping tide of westernization. Kuffar akbar!
