Classes of popular discipline have been canceled at the national level, something that recalls the measures taken in the past, especially with regard to activities related to women.

The Supreme Leader of Iran Also Likes Facebook

The supreme leader of Iran has received thousands of "likes" almost two weeks after opening his Facebook account.
The journalist of the Persian Service of the BBC, Bozorgmehr Sharafedin, has been following what Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has published in the social network and how the Iranians have reacted. It's been a while since Khamenei is active on the internet.
It has an official multimedia website in 14 languages, a Twitter profile with more than 7,000 followers and even an account on the site to share Instagram photos.
His first appearance on Facebook was on December 13, the day he posted a link to a story on his website about a recent meeting with university professors from around the Muslim world.
Although he has made only a handful of publications, it seems that the ayatollah has aroused much interest. Your "Like" number amounts to more than 16,000 and continues to increase. Many observers inside and outside the country will study with interest the efforts of Khamenei and his Facebook team to find a balance between "likes" and criticism in that context.
