The choir of girls with hearing impairment was prevented from going on stage in Tehran because their moves were said to resemble dancing.

The performance was due on Monday, May 28, 2018, in a ceremony at Tehran’s great mosque but was cancelled moments before going on stage because officials said it resembled harmonic moves, i.e. dancing.

Mahmoud Kari, chairman of the Voice of Disabled Association (Neday-e Ma’loulan), told ILNA news agency that the officials in charge of Tehran’s mosque were not well aware of the method of performance by the deaf choir and “this caused the cancellation which had an adverse impact on the girls.”
