Iranians Arrested for Dancing to ‘Happy’

A group of young Iranians were arrested and their sentences were heard today for the crime of dancing to the song “Happy” by Pharrell. I guess, in Iran, people can’t have fun. Although this type of thing is not unusual in a society that was founded on strict conservative Islamic values, it has made headlines because of the popularity of the video itself and the media thirst to know more about the people and the video. They were sentenced to jail time and lashes. The featured picture essentially describes how I feel about the Iranian Government. I think that they need to get with the video and be happy. Despite all this, I think that young Iranians will continue to lash out against the conservative government.
