The Vice President of the Majlis, Ali Motahari, attacked the Iranian actor Asghar Farhadi, who recently won the Oscar for the movie “The Salesman”. Despite praising Farhadi for his decision to boycott the award ceremony in US, in protest with Trump’s so called “Muslim Ban”, MP Motahari criticized the Farhadi’s decision to nominate the female astronaut Anoushe Ansari, as his representative (Ansari read the Oscar acceptance statement for Asgar Farhadi). Ali Motahadi said that Farhadi could have chosen a better representative, considering the fact that Ansari did not respect the Islamic dress code, not wearing the veil. On the top, it is possible to see the censored video broadcasted by the Iranian press agency on the award ceremony for Asghar Farhadi.
