Iran freedom CRACKDOWN: Outrage as dozens arrested for going to private yoga class

OUTRAGE erupted in Iran after the Middle Eastern nation’s hard-line authorities arrested 30 women and men for attending a yoga class.

By Sam Stevenson, The Express, May 25, 2019:

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.

The story of the arrests has caused uproar online leading to the topic to become a top social media trend, according to the BBC.

One user tweeted: “The Iranian authorities think even the word yoga is problematic based on the Sharia.”

Referring to the recent deployment of US warships to the region another added: “An establishment that finds even yoga harmful does not need the USS Abraham Lincoln warship to end its existence.”

Others say they have cancelled their plans to sign up to yoga classes following the arrests in Gorgan.

Someone confirmed in a tweet: “I guess the authorities need to tell us what exactly we are allowed to do in this country.”

But mixed sports are banned by the theocratic nation’s Islamic authorities.

While the practice of yoga is not officially banned teaching at a professional level is, The Independent reports, and religious hardliners – known as Mullahs – bemoan the “corrupting influence” of the spiritual activity.

The yoga arrests come just a day after the social media accounts of three prominent Iranian street musicians were reportedly seized by authorities in the country for publishing “criminal content”.

A notice posted on each of the accounts on Thursday read: “By the order of the respectable judicial authority, this web address has been seized due to publishing criminal content and those involved in the crimes noted in the case are being prosecuted.”
