Iran 180 reported:
Al Arabiya has reported that Ayatollah Safi Golpayegani, a Shi’ite cleric based in Iran has issued a fatwa against rap artist Shahin Najafi on charges of apostasy. The reality of the situation is that Najafi, who has resided in Germany as a rapper and rock guitarist since 2005, is receiving this sentence after his release of a controversial song called “Naqi” that the regime claims to be offensive to Islam. Since the sentence was announced, an aggressive online campaign calling for the hanging of Najafi has been deployed on “Asr Emrous”, an Iranian news website with strong connections with the regime, and on Facebook.
Here is Najafi’s controversial song – Shahin Najafi & Majid Kazemi – “Naghi”
