No Water Fights in Iran. What a poignant story that says so much. One can only wonder how such a joyless world could be tolerated. This is how these folks would have the world live. Even the worst of humanity, before Islam, rarely was it required that there be the lack of pleasure for kids. It gives new meaning to the word barbaric.
Sajedinia warned that the force would act against others who disrupted “public order and security”.
A number of young people have been arrested in Tehran due to engaging in a water fight, using water guns and bottles, and have been accused of violating Islamic principles and norms.
Tehran’s police chief, Hossein Sajedinia, said a group of young Tehran residents were arrested for splashing water at each other, according to Radio Free Europe. Sajedinia warned that the force would act against others who disrupted “public order and security.”
The young women and men gathered last week in a Tehran park to have a water fight. The event, planned and organized on Facebook, had reportedly attracted around 800 people. Many praised them for their creativity, for managing to organize the event; however conservative websites used the “incriminating” photos to accuse the young people of immorality and corruption.
One parliament deputy, Mousa Ghazanfarabadi, said the organizers of the event were trying to distance the youth from Islamic principles and the values of the Islamic republic. Another lawmaker, Hossein Ebrahim, called on the judiciary to take action against similar events.
