Basij Resistance Forces raid two parties in Nishapur, Iran, arrest 70 people

The Basij Resistance Forces in Iran broke up 2 parties within 72 hours, detaining 70 people.

The head of Nishapur precinct in Basij, Commander Ali-Akbar Hosseini, has announced that anonymous soldiers alerted him to an “obscene party”, and later to a second party.

Mixed-gender partying and the consumption of alcohol have been illegal in Iran since the Iranian Revolution. However, many continue to flout the risk of imprisonment and corporal punishment to continue their revelry.
