Instagram Models Imprisoned For Promoting ‘Western-Style Nudity’ – Basically Not Wearing Hijabs

Published on 13 December, 2016 at 7:47 pm By

The recent arrest of 12 social media models and fashion bloggers in Iran for allegedly promoting ‘western-style culture nudity’ is pure mockery of internet sensibilities. Their contention is that it ‘corrupts Muslims’ and are in violation of Islamic principles.

The jail-term for these ‘tech and fashion-savvy’ culprits has been set between six months and six years. Their punishment doesn’t stop here.

After their release from jail, some of them have been legally banned to work in journalism, travelling abroad, working in civil service; and in the end, no fashion or photography. However, this ban is applicable for only two years after their release from the jail.

Lawyer Mahmoud Taravat says his clients – eight women and four men, none of which have been named – received a jail sentence between five months and six years on Monday in a Shiraz court. One of the women is Elham Arab:



 

Charges include “encouraging prostitution” and “promoting corruption” by publishing “obscene” images that spread a “western-style culture of nudity” designed to corrupt Muslims, according to Iranian news agency Ilna.
