Iran Arrests 30 For Attending Mixed Yoga Class


Iran has detained 30 at yoga class citing inappropriate clothing and behavior.

Participating in mixed sporting events is forbidden in Iran. In fact, Iranian law bans most activities that mix men and women.

Iran segregates transportation and universities, as well as places of work. While yoga can be legally taught in the country, the classes must be single-sex and taught only by a licensed teacher.

Roughly 30 individuals taking part in a private yoga session were detained in Iran, according to reports, sparking outbursts of fury across the nation’s social media community. The people were arrested in the northern city of Gorgan, where they were apparently taking part in a mixed class. Local justice department official Massoud Soleimani said the instructor, who was also arrested, had no licence to run the class and had advertised the event on Instagram.

He also said that those taking part were wearing “inappropriate clothing” and had “behaved abnormally” and that the security forces had been monitoring the home for some time before the arrests, the Tasnim news agency reported.

While revealing the arrests, Mr Soleimani also lambasted the “lack of surveillance of activities” on social media in the country. More

Don’t laugh. If the leftists get their way, this kind of stuff may be coming to a neighborhood near you. In a sober world, this sort of ridiculousness would be laughed off the stage, but these people don’t play and neither should we.
