Arabian Nights: Prison and Lashes in Iran


An Iranian actress was sentenced to 90 lashes for starring a movie about how Iran mistreats its actresses, an opposition website reported.

Marzieh Vafamehr was also sentenced to a year in prison for her role in My Tehran for Sale, an Iranian-Australian collaboration which was furiously excoriated by the country’s conservatives for its depiction of the Islamic republic.

Vafamehr was arrested in July; her verdict was reportedly issued Saturday.

According to state media, My Tehran for Sale was never officially approved for distribution in Iran.

I believe in evolution of all creatures. All creatures are equal. Man is rational. Love is essential. War is evil. Religion can be a value for some men or women, but without political or moral power. Everyone is free but responsible. Slavery is a crime!
