Iran marks 40th anniversary Looking for love in Iran | Unreported 1 day ago   15:55

Iranians have taken to the streets across the country to mark the 40th anniversary of the 1979 revolution, renewing their allegiance to the country's Islamic principles at a time of rising economic and political pressure amid the resumption of punishing US sanctions.

In his address to the demonstrators gathered at Tehran's Azadi (Freedom) Square on Monday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani dismissed US efforts to isolate Tehran, saying US sanctions could not break the Islamic Republic.

"The presence of people today on the streets all over Islamic Iran... means that the enemy will never reach its evil objectives," Rouhani said, adding that the country will continue to pursue its missile programme to defend the country from external threats.

"We have not asked, and will never ask for permission in developing our missile arsenal as we continue to pursue our path to military might."

Iran organises the nationwide rally every February 11 to highlight the size of grassroots support for the revolution, which replaced Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi's government with an Islamic Republic under Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.

Lol. Al jazeera this is why I laugh at your organisation when you attempt to spread shock value about Human rights issues.

Kc.45:20 Know that all the baptisms, even with Branhamists, are wrong. One day, when receiving a new convert at his office, a Branhamist pastor asked him whether the baptism he received was by immersion in the Name of the Lord Jesus-Christ? He said: "Yes!" And this Branhamist pastor, told him that that baptism was correct. Whereas it is a baptism received in an evangelical church. You see? At the time of John the Baptist, all the baptisms were false except that of John the Baptist. At the time of Paul, all the baptisms were false except that of Paul and Paul even re-baptised the disciples of John the Baptist like Apollos. And at the time of the prophet Kacou Philippe today, all the baptisms of the Catholic, Protestant, evangelical and Branhamist churches are false except the baptism of the Prophet Kacou Philippe. If you do not understand, pray for God to reveal it to you. There are not two Gods, there are not two truths, there are not two baptisms, there are not two living prophet messengers on the earth. [Ed: The congregation says: "Amen!"].

Iran should change its policy otherwise revolution will fall

People especially the young are very disillusioned with the status quo

I support the principles of the revolution but feel that the approach needs to be changed people need better economic prospects

Looking for love in Iran | Unreported Iran marks 40th anniversary 1 day ago   22:41

Iran's dating revolution: For the first time in its history, Unreported World visited Iran for a rare chance to look at the realities of life for young people there. In a country bound by strict Islamic law, more Iranians than ever before are staying single. The government is so concerned that it set up an online dating agency to which they gave us exclusive access. Shaunagh Connaire went to Tehran in 2016 to find out about dating, Iranian style.

This episode first aired on 13/05/2016.
