Iran Police Arrest 32 “Half Naked” Party-goers

From those defenders of the faith at the AFP:

Iran police arrest 32 in party raid

TEHRAN (AFP) – Iranian police said Saturday they had arrested 32 university students at a party in Karaj outside Tehran for drinking alcohol and “being half-naked,” the ISNA news agency reported.

“Police forces arrested 11 girls and 21 boys on Thursday night for drinking alcoholic drinks and being half-naked,” the commander of Tehran province’s security police Nader Sarkari was quoted as saying.

He said the raid came after a tip-off and that the students were celebrating after one of them had won a medal in an international competition…

Mixed-sex parties are illegal in Iran. It is also forbidden to consume alcohol in public or private and attend gatherings with improperly clad members of the opposite sex. Dancing to Western music is frowned upon as well.

Iran’s overall police chief Esmaeel Ahmadi Moghaddam has said that the moral crackdown — dubbed a drive to “elevate security in society” — would continue because it had proved popular with the public.

How many years are the Mullahs of the Middle East going to waste trying to put the jinn back in the bottle?
