Iran censors scenes with chickens on TV
We won't discuss whether the economical sanctions against Iran are justified or the right way to deal with the issue. Still, the ones that have to suffer from such actions, are the normal citizens and right now, they have to fight with increasing prices for food. The reactions of the government, no matter if we talk internal or external, aren't the best to handle the crisis, either and missmanagement in the economical politic are just as much a reason for the high inflation rate.
Admittedly, they started to supply the market with subsidized food right before the Ramadan but that doesn't cut it by far. But there are also other measurements apart from helping the people: oppression, for example, in which Iran is undoubtedly good.
Esmail Ahmadi-Moghaddam, chief of the national security agency in Iran suggested that depictions and scenes of chickens in films and TV should be censored. According to the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung, he argues that the poorer citizens should not be provoked by something they can't get. Chicken is almost unaffordable in Iran and people could decide to get their knives and try to take it from the richer citizens. Therefore, the national television IRIB should not be a display for unachievable goods.
