Iran de­stroys 100,000 satel­lite dishes

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Iran de­stroyed 100,000 satel­lite dishes and re­ceivers as part of a wide­spread crack­down against the il­le­gal de­vices that au­thor­i­ties say are morally dam­ag­ing. The de­struc­tion cer­e­mony on July 24 took place in the pres­ence of Gen­eral Mo­ham­mad Reza Naghdi, head of Iran’s Basij mili­tia, who warned of the im­pact that satel­lite tele­vi­sion was hav­ing in the con­ser­va­tive coun­try. “The truth is that most satel­lite chan­nels ... de­vi­ate the so­ci­ety’s moral­ity and cul­ture,” he said at the event.
