An 18-year-old girl has been detained in Iran for posting her dance video on Instagram. There was a great agitation after the teenage Maedeh Hojabri posted her videos dancing in her bedroom.
In a video broadcast on state television on Friday, it has been found that the detained girl acknowledged breaking moral norms. She said that she did not post the video to encourage others to do the same work. She just tried to garner more followers.
Hojabri`s video spreads quickly even after the closure of her Instagram account with more than 6 lac followers. She had posted around 300 videos on her account, most of which saw her dancing to Iranian and Western pop music.
Meanwhile, the social media users have reacted sharply to the arrest of Hojabri. Hussein Ronagy, a blogger, said that anyone in the world will laugh about the arrest of an 18-year-old for dancing.
Iran`s government has tough rules for women`s clothing and public dancing with anyone of the opposite sex.
