Police Arrested Six People For Happy Video

The Iranian police arrested six people for posting a video on the internet where they appear dancing to Pharrell Williams “Happy”.  After the video went viral, the police wasted not time tracking down the four men and two women dancing in the video and arresting them.

Islamic law prohibits co-ed dancing and the women appear without proper Islamic hijab, or head scarves which is a big no no. In reaction to the arrests, thousands  of people posted on Facebook and Twitter to free the six using hashtag #FreeHappyIranians   The Iranian President Hassan Rouhani tweeted his approval of the video and had the six released. Hopefully now Iranians can continue to be happy without the fear of  being arrested.
