Iran is such a super place, all that Islam warms the heart: Six Iranians arrested for posting ‘Happy’ on YouTube

Police said on Tuesday they had arrested six Iranians suspected of posting a version of U.S. singer Pharrell Williams’s hit song “Happy” on the Internet.

The clip shows three men and three unveiled women singing and dancing to the tune in the streets and on Tehran rooftops.

“After a vulgar clip which hurt public chastity was released in cyberspace, police decided to identify those involved in making that clip,” Tehran police chief Hossein Sajedinia was quoted as saying by the ISNA news agency.

“Following a series of intelligence and police operations and after coordinating with the judiciary, all the suspects were identified and arrested.”

ISNA said the detainees were three men and three women and that they “confessed to their criminal acts.”
