Own a dog in Iran? That will be 74 lashes
“The sporadic and politically motivated campaigns against dog ownership are aimed at further suppressing the youth and women in Iran who have, in past few weeks, held protests against the acid attacks on women that have been carried out by state-sponsored gangs.”
In the past year, Iranians have been punished for “crimes” that go against the conservative Iranian laws. In May, six young men and women were given jail time and lashes for creating a spoof of Pharrell’s “Happy” music video and on Sunday, a British-Iranian woman was sentenced to a year in jail for attending a volleyball game.
No wonder progressives love Islam so much.
