Mothers Gather Outside Karaj Police Station

Mothers of 270 Iranian youth, who were arrested after attending a rock concert, gathered outside Karaj police station today to find out about the whereabouts of their children.

I wonder if people in the West can possibly begin to understand this. Having your children arrested and not tell you where they are kept or what is happening to them, just because they attended a rock concert!

Why is Guardian calling this a "satnic" rave?

What is so Satanic about this concert?

any info about the concert? I'm quite interested in what underground culture exists in Iran as it's not something that's widely known about obviously.

Absolutly horrible! An immoral thing to impose on families. It is one in a long line of abominations coming out of the perverted religious extremist mind-set.

بايد نگران جان اين جوانان نگونبخت بود. همين روزها شايد چندی از آنان به جرم اراذل و اوباش بودن به دست دژخيمان اسلامی به دار آويخته شوند.ـ

Well, now we know why it was claimed they were satanists!! The revolutionary guards equate all heavy metal with Satan worshipping! and these kids were playing heavy metal. Hope the Guardian would now report this too.

Potkin: LOL. Now, it makes sense. How sad.

Iran is a beautiful country with very rich cultural heritage. My tears goes to you to see it being desecrated by the 'mullahs'. I guess it is the religion of peace that is at fault.

I am glad that more and more iranians are waking up. I wish the west wakes up before it is too late.

Hi Azarmehr, I'm writing on Iranian Americans in LA currently before hopefully going to Iran at www.washingtonpost.com/america. I was wondering if you could check it out and might be willing to write a short piece for the site. Email me at amar[dot]bakshi[at]gmail[dot]com. Thanks, Amar
