Iranian teen arrested for dancing on Instagram

Iranian teen arrested for dancing on Instagram

Maedeh Hojabri, who was born in Tehran, practiced gymnastics for few years before participating in the sport of Parkour, a training discipline using movement that developed from military obstacle course, which is the reason for her current accusation.

Masih Alinejad, an Iranian activist and journalist, posted the following video of herself dancing without her obligatory headscarf.

Iran's state television on Friday telecasted a video of Hojabri and other arrested persons confessing to breaking moral norms. Ms Hojabri's videos showed her dancing at home without the mandatory headscarf, or hijab.

Hojabri was an Instagram star with tens of thousands of followers but also used multiple accounts on other social media. As of now, it's unclear whether the teen dancer made her statement under duress.

According to various news reports, Maedeh Hojabri, 18, an Iranian teenager was detained by the Police and later released on bail. Iran, which has a hardline policy on social networking websites, is planning to shut down similar accounts on Instagram, and the judiciary is considering blocking access to the site.

"The government's intolerance and disrespect of Iranians' choice of lifestyle is indicative of a lack of freedom in the country that has reached a new low in the past few months with the attack on social media personalities", said Ghaemi. I did not want to encourage others to do the same.

Authorities in Iran arrested four women last week for posting videos of themselves dancing on Instagram.

"It wasn't for attracting attention", she said.

The potential charges against Hojabri were not specified, but she is likely to be accused of running afoul of Islamic codes of behavior that call for modesty in attire and behavior. Men and women are banned from dancing in public.

This isn't the first time people have been arrested for dancing.

In 2014, six young Iranians were sentenced to a year in prison and 91 lashes for doing a jig to Pharrell Williams' song "Happy", on the streets and rooftops of Tehran.
