Iran's clergy against women in stadiums

The clergy in Iran have opposed the move by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to allow women and families in the stadium for the Soccer World Cup. The President, who is an ultra conservative had lifted the ban on Monday.

Members of the clergy say it is wrong for men and women to look at each other's bodies, even if they have no intention of taking pleasure from it. The President added that the presence of women and families in public places promotes chastity.

I never knew men in Iran were so horny that they couldn't forget about women ever while watching the World Cup.


But this is something I'm sure you would have never heard before. Sixteen-year-old Isma Mahmood was deported to Pakistan last month after serving six months in shackles and handcuffs in a prison in Saudi Arabia. Her crime: being raped by a Saudi man.
