After 34 years of ruling over Iran and Iranians, time is at hand for getting down to the nitty-gritty of Islamic life in the modern world.

Now that everything is hunky-dory, Islamic economy is working as intended, Islamic social restrictions have eliminated vice and other ills and so on and so forth, time has come to attend to one of the pillars of Islam, prayer.

And air travel conflicting with 5 times a day prayer will not do, ergo, the new directive issued by Iran’s Civil Aviation Organization:

“all aircraft will be prohibited from flying across the country during the Adhan [Azan], or call to prayer…”

Considering all the different Azan times in different cities in Iran, if you are wondering about the possible scheduling complications given the wheels of modern world spin at a different speed, let say, from 1400 hundred years ago, you are not alone, Rick Gladstone of NY Times is wondering about the same thing.

This is another harebrained scheme, a specialty of the godly folks ruling over Iran for the past 34 years.

This 'harebrained scheme' in your wordings Your Majesty, Fred is purely Iranian & is born out of a culture of deception and lies. It is in continuation of 2500 years history of we all know filled with what. It and has nothing to do with Islam. Islam has no pillars and rather embraces the heavens and the earth.


amirparvizforsecularmonarchy I Love Waterfalls and Find One of the most humorous things in the world; is the notion that Americans are a greater force for good & more civilized than Nazi's, Mullahs and Communists.

The Truth Based on Peoples Experiences and a reflection of the facts makes me totally 100% certain most of the Iranian people know that the GOOD thing about Iran has been its 2500 year Monarchy and the BAD thing about Iran has been its Corrupt Islamic Authorities and the UGLY thing about Iran is everything that Iranians have experienced now for over 33 years and continue to suffer from. The Deception that worked in the past, is not shared by most of the people of Iran Today any longer who are paying the price for accepting the lies as the picture above shows. Its going to be fun bringing Freedom back to Iran as It existed during the late shahs time if only to see the mullahs have to work for a living.


choghok Your enemie's enemy is necessarily not a friend.

In a country where Politicians create religious laws and the religious leaders create state laws what is to be expected?

I think the next would be that the toilets in trains and planes would be made so that they would always point away from Mecca.
