Iran Police Arrest 30 Men And Women For Attending Mixed-Gender Yoga Class


A judicial official in northern Golestan Province announced on Friday, May 24, that 30 men and women have been detained for attending a mixed-gender yoga class.

According to the Human Rights in Iran In comments carried by the state-run Tasnim news agency Masoud Soleimani said: “A person in the cyberspace (Instagram) published a Yoga education advert for men and women in his residential home, and managed to communicate with a number of people.”

“This person did not have a club license and held yoga classes at a residential home in Gorgan. Women and men were present at this house with inappropriate clothes and had abnormal behaviors,” Soleimani added.

The judicial official has not elaborated on the nature of the “abnormal behaviors,” but he restated that a lawsuit has been filed for the offender and submitted to the judicial authorities.

Soleimani stated that the cyberspace needs more powerful monitoring and control, saying that some “lawbreakers” misuse the lack of monitoring in cyberspace and do criminal acts.

Earlier that month, Iran announced the arrest of an unknown number of people for working in ‘un-Islamic’ online modelling networks.

The state-run Tasnim news agency, affiliated to the IRGC Quds Force, reported Saturday, May 1, that the arrests took place in Iran’s central Markazi province. It did not elaborate on the number of detainees, other than to say they had been handed over to the Iranian regime’s judiciary.

General Mohsen Karimi, an IRGC commander in the central city of Arak, said staff at the agencies had been arrested for “promoting vulgarity”, partly through sharing portfolio pictures of models on social media.
