The Iranian Ministry of Culture has decided to cancel the participation of the singer Salar Aghili from a popular Music Festival. The reason is the interview given by Salar Aghili to a program broadcasted by the satellite channel Manoto TV (video on the top). Manoto TV is a TV channel in Farsi, which has its headquarter in London. The TV channel is considered by the Iranian Government, as an anti-regime network. The decision was announced directly by Hossein Noushabadi, the Spokesman of the Iranian Ministry of Culture (so, direct representative of the Rouhani’s Government).
