Yes, that's right. Dark humour is the same as killing someone.
There are some parts of the world were you never mess with religion. Its so messed upAm I allowed the criticize the the court, the country (government) and the Islamic rules in general? Is that ok here?
Also you've got to be kidding me. Someone actually played the whole thing and instead of being proud that it's a good Iranian game they decided to take devs to the court because it's not Islamic enough? Who the fuck cares? Are the rules even that important?
Yeah no, that's not the worst...
this is the same stupid sort of crap humor that people flooded twitter with to make idiotic and insulting WW3 memes despite how it spikes anxiety up very high for people like me who either know someone in the military, know friends in the country, or just don't want anyone to get hurt or die. Knock this shit off, it's the wrong board for this talk anyhow.
Who could have ever imagined that when you expressed concern about their roadmap but not about their safety, people could somehow interpret it as you being concerned about their roadmap but not about their safety?
I know it's not but I'm hoping for the best. I hate how religion dominates law in these countries. Like I would think the idea of flogging someone would be something they wouldn't even consider but that's an actual that can happen. It's insaneYeah no, that's not the worst...
Best case if this truly goes to the sharia courts? Fines and the game pulled. Worst case we're looking at literally flogging of the developers and long prison times in addition to fines and the game pulled. You really can not mess around with the religious police over there unfortunately :(
In fact, Iran and Pakistan are the only two countries that have the death penalty explicitly written into their blasphemy laws. As you said, it's insane.
As a Pakistani, that disappoints me. It's something that very much should stay in the dark ages
It shouldn’t make you feel hateful. Thinking an idea or belief is stupid/backward/destructive/insane doesn’t make you hateful or bigoted. It’s when you take your criticism of the belief/culture/idea and apply to people that it becomes hateful.
Wasn't it Iranians that decided they wanted this, the Shah himself was pretty corrupt and they wanted him out. And it was US backed and armed Saddam Hussein that inflamed the situation that saw the nation lose over a million men/women, that's an entire generation of children without complete families devastated by war. I don't think it's as simple as saying bearded men, I can see why so many would be cautious of outsiders after they were on the brink of annihilation. We're definitely responsible for some of this.Iran was a pretty progressive and open place before being handed over to a bearded asshole in 1979.
Fucking tragedy what happened to it. There's nothing wrong with criticizing the barbarian government or the imperialists who allowed it to happen. The people shouldn't have to live under this mess.
Some Iranians, but not all, were upset by the Shah's corruption and the fact that he had been a puppet of the US and UK, and Russia was more than happy to help Khomeini if it meant an anti-US regime in the region. Of course, if the US and UK hadn't gotten rid of Mossadegh in the 50s, none of this would have happened, but it doesn't make Khomeini defensible in the least.Wasn't it Iranians that decided they wanted this, the Shah himself was pretty corrupt and they wanted him out.

You get lashed for playing rock music, so yeah... people here shouldn't make jokes.
Luckily the developers are (apparently) in Texas. So the government can take their summons and shove it.
That is awesome news, I work in an office full of iranians who come to iraq for work and they constantly get harassed by their government over meaningless things
Hope so. THat's a really silly reason to go to court on.based on what i'm seeing, looks they they had some pos fanatic who's taking them to court over this, but i don't see anything that would get them into major trouble. nothing majorly anti-islam or against the iranian government.
i'm optimistic that the court won't take it too seriously and they'll get away with a slap on the wrist. still very fucked up that they have to go to court over this in the first place and the case wasn't immediately thrown out.
I don't think that's true. At least in the tweet it says that they were brought in by ethic police and told that they'd have to appear in court. From the tweet it sounds like they are in Iran.
