If the newspaper raised questions on the Supreme Leader of Iran, the government imposed a ban
Iran's judicial authorities on Monday banned a newspaper
Iran's judicial authorities on Monday banned a newspaper for allegedly carrying a graphic picture of a hand resembling Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on its front page. In the picture, a hand resembling Khamenei's hand was shown drawing Iran's poverty line. Let us tell you that the public anger over the declining economy of the country has been increasing.
The state-backed news agency reported that Iran's media watchdog has shut down the daily newspaper 'Kelid' because of an article on the front page of the newspaper titled "Living below the poverty line" on Saturday. Millions of Iranians do it."
Below the title was a picture of a man holding a pen in his left hand and drawing a red line below which the general public is depicted. This graphic matches an old portrait of Khamenei writing something on a piece of paper with his left hand and the ring he often wears on one of his fingers.
