Iranian police have arrested a couple for "outraging public decency" after they got engaged in front of a crowd at a shopping mall. Video of the public engagement made the rounds on the internet and that's when authorities got involved. After the proposal, the woman can be seen hugging the man as the crowd cheers. The deputy police commander of Markazi Province said that the couple had been taken into custody for "outraging public decency, which is an influence of the degenerate Western culture."Islamic law enforced in Iran severely restricts mixing between the genders and displays of public affection. It also prohibits public dancing and the mingling of unrelated men and women. The couple did, however, make bail and have been released.
