Watch Your Lyrics, Iranian Singers, You Can Be Sent To Jail If You're Not Careful!
A popular and controversial Iranian singer has been sentenced to five years in prison because his lyrics have been adjudged to be disrespectful to the Koran.
Fortunately for him, Mohsen Namjoo is not in Iran so the trial and judgment was made in absentia and he remains wanted but at large.
This is just another example of the freedoms of the Iranian people being oppressed by the regime. A nation where speaking out or questioning your government or your religion can land you in prison - or worse.
