Iran Prohibits Contact with 60 Organisations

Iran has banned 60 organisations including the BBC, Human Rights Watch, opposition website Rahesabz and US funded broadcasters, refraining its citizens from having contact with them, state media reported.

Giving the reason of ban, the deputy intelligence minister in-charge of external affairs said that these 60 organisations are suspected of involvement in the efforts of the West to bring down the Islamic regime as part of a ‘soft war’ and that it was an offence to communicate with them.

“Any kind of contact by individuals or legal entities with those groups involved in the soft war is illegal and prohibited,” state media quoted the deputy minister as saying on Monday without giving his name.

Other blacklisted organizations include US government funded Voice of America and Radio Farda as well as US-based pro-monarchist satellite channels, Israel Radio and the outlawed rebel People’s Mujahideen.
