Iran Bars Music in Private Schools, May Impose University Code

Let's see what the left wing musicians have to say about this.

June 1 (Bloomberg) -- Iran has barred private schools from teaching music, saying it clashes with the establishment’s Islamic values, following a push to enforce moral standards that may lead to a national dress code for university students.

“The use of musical instruments is against the principles of our value system,” Ali Bagherzadeh, head of the private- schools office in the Education Ministry, said in a phone interview from Tehran today. Iran’s 16,000 private schools have 1.1 million students, the Islamic Republic News Agency said.

Tell me again about how great and enlightened Islam is. The left don't care about gays under Islam and I'm guessing they won't care about musicians either.
