According to Iranian press, at least 100,000 satellite dishes and receivers were destroyed in Iran on Sunday within the framework of the operation to stop spreading of illegal receivers in the country.

The destroying was carried out in Tehran in the presence of the head of the Iranian militia “Basij” General Mohammad Reza Naghdi.

“The truth is that most satellite TV channels degrade public morality and culture. What these channels really do is increase in the number of divorces, addictions, and promotion of social instability,” Naghdi said.

The general said that more than one million citizens of Iran voluntarily surrendered the equipment for receiving satellite television.
