Just when you think you heard it all from Iran, something like this comes along. “Iran: Search for lost dog leads to arrest,” from AKI:
Tehran, 3 August (AKI) – A young Iranian who was searching for his lost puppy in a Tehran neighborhood has been arrested and ordered to stand trial for ‘moral corruption’.
According to the Tehran daily, Etemad Melli, the young man was caught while putting up a notice in which he was promising a reward to anyone who found his dog.
“Looking for a lost dog indicates the spread of a corrupt culture, which indirectly popularises keeping a dog at home, something that is completely foreign to the culture and Isamic tradition,” said Tehran police spokesman, Mehdi Ahmadi.
“In arresting this young man, we wanted to send a very clear message to our young people, you need to steer away from the corrupt culture imported from the west.”
Said Muhammad: “Angels (of Mercy) do not enter a house wherein there is a dog or a picture of a living creature (a human being or an animal).”
