Iran Arrests Two Young Women For Public Dancing.

Two young women were arrested in Tehran after the publication of a video in which they danced to celebrate the coming of the Persian New Year.

The clip of the two women hip shaking near Tajrish square, a popular gathering spot for young people in the north of the Iranian capital, went viral on social media.

The two women were dressed up as Hadji Farouz, a red-clad folklore character who’s dancing and songs announce the coming of Nowruz, the Persian New Year that will begin on March 20.

Islamic law as practiced in Iran prohibits mixed dancing or women being alone in public.

A 22-year-old Iranian Kurdish woman, Amini had been arrested by the morality police in Tehran for not respecting the strict dress code in force in the Islamic republic.
