Iran's supreme leader: music should not be "promoted or taught" in Iran

"Although music is halal, promoting and
teaching it is not compatible with the highest values of the sacred regime
of the Islamic Republic. It's better that our dear youth spend their
valuable time in learning science and essential and useful skills and fill
their time with sport and healthy recreations instead of music."—Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the supreme leader of Iran.
