WANA – A member of Islamic Consultative Assembly or Majlis (Parliament) says that during the recent protests and unrests in Iran over 350 million tweets were sent to distort people’s minds.


Nasrollah Pejmanfar who is the head of Article 90 of the Constitution Commission of the Majlis said: “The enemy’s method is to create false narratives through spending money and employing different Media to mislead people’s mind.”

“During the recent unrests in the country, some individuals had ties with espionage services of other countries, but the majority of protesters are those whose minds are confused and cannot face the realities of their society,” he claimed. (tweets)


“We are confronted with an abundance of mental invasions, an issue which nothing has been done to resolve that. Sometimes, when a young girl who doesn’t wear a proper hijab or has removed her hijab faces reality in a tranquil atmosphere, she expresses readiness to admit that she has been wrong,” he added.
