IRI does not & repeat does not stand by the Koran. Otherwise no way in the world would have turned to a totalitarian regime as we have 2500 years history of such. It is therefore necessary for any of the ignorants commentators below to realize that the regime loves for the world to blame Islam & Koran instead of any of its known criminals acting under banner of the religion.
Just think about it a minute. Who in the world did give the Molla Khomeini autority to come up with the superficial label of 'Islamic Republic?' He, himself! Koran does not authorize such at all. The self denial is the Isalm foundation. Do we have such understanding in Iranian regime? Khomeini wanted to be the Shah himself. That is why he first printed his picture on the Iranian currency as with the former Kings. But that currency is worthless now! That is how GOD operates as time has no meaning to him!
Excellent art work. The symbolism could not be more appropriate and deliciously mind-bending for the perverse fundamentlists...hahahaha
A state of war only serves as an excuse for domestic tyranny.--Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.
This is not an insult to Islam or any Abrahamic religion . A man and a woman of virtue does not see her naked , does not judge or slander her , but worries of their own failure and lack of courage to face those
crook and thugs that have promoted themselves to place of a God , chnage the truth for their own gain and have no fear of god to stop
Satanic Verses; as an insult of Islam, needing to be "removed!"
Drinking wine next to Ghoran as an act of protest, is almost like that statement by Faataaneh (LA singer of last decades), claiming her singing and dancing and sheer enjoyment was an act of protest and struggle against IR (which to an extent it is). But that's really pushing it.
Iraj is making fun of Golshifteh Farahani's nude pose and those who claim that it is an act of protest against religious repression. But to me, drinking wine in the nude by the Koran is indeed rebellion against all the Islamic Republic stands for. It IS freedom vs. bondage.
A grievous insult to the Muslims. A sincere request for its removal.
