Proposed pet ban in Iran: Islamic parliamentarians versus secular citizens — 2 Comments

    • Good point about the mosques. In Turkey there’s lots of cats visiting mosques because they are welcome there in line with the Prophet’s teachings. I don’t think this law will be passed because it is too extreme. It’s got a fundamentalist flavour to it and is not going to work perhaps partly because Iran is quite westernised. I have in fact visited Iran many years ago when the Shah was in charge. It was of course more westernised then but I don’t think they’ve ever shaken off that Western attitude.
