Iran destroys satellite dishes

Iran destroys satellite dishes
Iranian authorities have destroyed at least 100,000 satellite dishes and other types of television receivers. The reason for the initiative is that (Western) satellite transmissions are considered morally harmful.

The massive raid was carried out mainly in Tehran and overseen by General Mohammad Reza, who is leading the country's religious Basij volunteer militia.

Naghdi claimed at an appearance in connection with the dish being destroyed, that the satellite services only lead to an "increased number of divorces, abuse and insecurity in society."

- The truth is that parabolic antennas are undermining society's morals and culture, he said, according Basijs news agency.

Naghdi added that one million Iranians have already submitted their antennas voluntarily. By law, possession, distribution or repair of a satellite dish gives fines up to $2,800.
