Iranian Fatwa Against Anti-Censoring Tools Censored

Yes, there is justice in the world.


Iranian Fatwa Against Anti-Censoring Tools Censored

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is not a fan of the internet. Under his leadership the nation has embarked on an attempt to destroy the internet as the rest of the world knows it. currently the country employs filtering tools not unlike those in China, but significantly more extreme.

Some industrious citizens who weren’t happy about this created tools to bypass these restrictions. the Supreme Commander wasn’t happy about this, so he issued a fatwa against the programs, outlawing their use. In what can only be described as a wonderfully ironic event, though, it is unavailable to those within the country.

Because Iran’s insane internet filters filtered it out.
