An Iranian couple popularly known as Astiyazh Haghighi aged 21 and Amir Mohammad Ahmadi aged 22 are reported to have been sentenced for more than 10 years after breaching the Iranian law.
The popular Instagram bloggers were filmed dancing romantically on the streets of Tehran in front of Teheran’s Azadi Tower, a land mark.
The two were convicted for encouraging corruption and practicing public prostitution as well as gathering with the intention of disrupting the Iranian National Security officials.
According to online reports, Haghighi was not wearing a headscarf in defiance of Iranian strict law. Besides, women are not allowed to dance in public especially with a man.
According to Islam faith, girls and women are meant to wear the headscarf to maintain modesty and privacy from unrelated men, but Haghighi wasn’t wearing any to the extent of being filmed dancing with a man in public.
