Couple sentence to 10 years in prison for dancing in Iran

A couple who danced on the street of Iran has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Earlier, a video of the Iranian couple dancing on the street gets viral on social media.

In the video 21-year-old Istiyaz Haqi and his fiance Amir Mohammad Ahmadi can be seen dancing at Tehran’s Azadi Tower which went viral on their Instagram account.

According to a foreign news agency, an Iranian court convicted the couple for promoting nudity, corruption, and propaganda.

The couple had also been banned from using social media for two years, and they had also been asked to leave the country.

According to reports, the couple did not link their dance to the ongoing protests in Iran.

Currently, Iran had been facing the worst protests of all time that were sparked after the death of an Iranian Kurdish woman Mahsa Amini.

Mahsa suffered a cardiac arrest after getting tortured by Iran’s Morality police for not wearing modest clothes.
