    Iran issues fatwa against pets

    Iranian authorities have banned all advertisements for pets, pet food and other pet products.

    The decision by Iran’s Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance comes after the fatwa was issued by powerful cleric Grand Ayatollah Nasser Makarem Shirazi.
    While keeping dogs as pets has become increasingly fashionable in Iran in recent years, the fatwa cited Islamic tradition, which dictates that dogs are unclean.
    In June, Ayatollah Shirazi declared dogs unclean, saying that dog owners were “blindly imitating the West” and that their devotion to the animals would result in “evil outcomes”.
    “Many people in the West love their dogs more than their wives and children,” he said.
    The ban on pet advertising is the latest attempt by Iran’s culture ministry to undermine “decadent” Western culture.
    In July, Tehran produced a catalogue of haircuts meeting government approval. The list banned ponytails, mullets and elaborate spikes.

    About time they banned the Koran. Then the people would have the opportunity to evolve into civilised human beings.
