A mass wedding ceremony at an Iranian army ground forces military academy has sparked a barrage of criticism over the use of a flower-adorned red Ford Mustang as a wedding car.

Photos of the mass weeding of at least 100 couples at the Imam Ali Officers University went viral on Wednesday by Iranian social media users who were shocked that the cadets chanting “Death to America” ​​during their daily training get married in one of the most iconic American cars.

While many resent the hypocrisy, most people scoff at the combination of a red Ford Mustang with a white chador, outer garment or open coat worn by Muslim women.

While Iranian authorities, especially military officials, never waste an opportunity to criticize the use of American brands, many of them and their family members pay large sums of money to use the lavish products.

Earlier in the year, a selfie of Qasem Soleimani’s daughter holding the latest iPhone 13 was picked up by Iranian social media users who started reposting it to argue that the phone the former Quds (Quds) Force commander’s daughter is using to demand retaliation for the US is an iPhone .

Collective marriages, which appeared in Iran in the 1990s, are promoted by the authorities to encourage marriage among young people, who are especially hesitant about the cost of holding a wedding ceremony. Their costs are usually covered by various government institutions, with the Office of the Representative of the Supreme Leader for Universities being one of the major funders.

Kabul (AFP) – Dozens of Afghan women concealed in thick green shawls were married in an austere mass wedding in Kabul on Monday, in a ceremony attended by hundreds of guests and armed Taliban fighters.

Marriage is an expensive affair in deeply impoverished Afghanistan, traditionally involving huge dowries, expensive gifts and lavish parties.

Historically, couples from families unable to pay the bill have sometimes chosen to pool their resources in low-cost, large-scale weddings.

Monday’s ceremony involving 70 couples was one of the largest ever in Afghanistan, currently in economic freefall since the return of the Taliban.

“Today, no young man wants to carry the burden of an expensive wedding,” said groom Ebadullah Niazai, who had waited eight years to get married.

“I don’t have a job. We were short of money so we decided to get married in a mass wedding,” said Esmatullah Bashardost, a 22-year-old groom from the minority Shia Hazara community. .

Bashardost, wearing a traditional Afghan cap, said his wedding would likely be the “happiest day” of his life.

However, the celebrations have been significantly dampened by the chilling restrictions the Taliban have imposed on social life.

Before they took power in August, weddings were very colorful affairs marked by song, dance and some degree of mixing between men and women in the deeply conservative nation.

On Monday, the bride and groom were separated throughout the ceremony.

Guests of opposite sexes were separated by a dozen patrolling Taliban fighters with weapons, and the only entertainment was poetry recitations and speeches by the event’s charity organizers.

Journalists were not allowed to speak to the brides, who wore pristine white dresses under their concealed shawls, but were allowed to photograph and film them.

A red and white wedding cake was produced for each couple, but was placed in front of the men only, who wore the traditional white shalwar kameez.

The event ended when the bride and groom – each wearing a plastic badge – picked up their brides and drove off in cars decorated with flowers and ribbons.

A one-day booking at a wedding venue in Kabul costs between $10,000 and $20,000 and organizer Sayed Ahmad Selab said some engaged couples “have been waiting for years” because of the expense.

During their first regime between 1996 and 2001, the Taliban banned ostentatious marriages.

After returning to power following a hasty US withdrawal, the Islamists have yet to reinstate their previous ban, but they have banned musical entertainment.

Meanwhile, they have also imposed creeping restrictions on women, separating them from men and reversing the marginal gains they have made over the past two decades.

In May, women were told to stay home as much as possible and hide completely, including their faces, if they had to go out in public.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee danced with a group of tribal women as part of a mass wedding program during her three-day visit to Alipurduar in North Bengal on Wednesday. She also gave gift packages to newly married couples and blessed them with their future.

Video of Mamata Banerjee’s dance was shared on the official Trinamool Congress Facebook page. In the video, Mamata Banerjee, CM of West Bengal, is seen giving gifts to newly married couples and blessing them. Later, she joins a group of tribal women for a dance performance as an adivasi song plays in the background.

In a tweet, the TMC said,

Prime Minister Modi’s promises and worries seem to disappear as soon as the election is over: WB CM Mamata Banerjee

Speaking at the event in Alipurduar on Wednesday, TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee mocked the Centre, saying ordinary people are being deceived by promises such as the creation of separate and diverse states social protection schemes before the elections. “But these never materialize later,” PTI quoted Mamata as saying.

“Before the elections, BJP makes big promises like Ujala plans, opening tea gardens, but after the elections, no BJP leader is seen. BJP policies are harmful to the interests of ordinary people,” Mamata said.

The Chief Minister also said that she wants the Adivasi to compete in the Olympics and win gold for the country.

“Today 510 people got married and under Rupashri scheme I gave them Rs. 10,000. My aim is also to elevate the status of Adivasis. No one can take land from Adivasis. There is an Adivasi Bhawan in Kolkata and another such building is planned in Kalimpong,” the Chief Minister added.

“Under the Chaa Sundari program of the government of Bengal, houses have been built for the tea workers. More than 12,000 houses have already been built. We also provide 1,500 rupees per month to tea workers, who already have free access to electricity, health services and drinking water. Our government also respects tribal leaders like Birsa Munda and Raghunath Murmu by granting public holidays on their birthday,” Mamata added.

JOHOR BARU: After postponing their wedding for two years, Teo Ruey Yang and Lai Kim Mei finally exchanged vows in front of their loved ones on a romantic date.

They were among 47 couples who wed on May 20 or “520” for short, a namesake adapted from “wo ai ni” (I love you) in Mandarin.

It was the first mass wedding celebration in Wisma Tiong Hua here after a two-year hiatus.

Teo and Lai, who have known each other for more than seven years, said they were happy that this day had finally arrived despite the long wait due to Covid-19.

“We wanted to get married in 2020 but had to postpone it due to movement restrictions and also because we both work in Singapore.

“At one point, we even considered getting married in Singapore, but our families couldn’t be there because the border was still closed.

“I’m glad we waited for the border to reopen. Now we can share our special day with our families here,” said Teo, 32, a logistics officer.

Lai’s cousin Ong Zhang, 31, and partner Tang Sin Waiy, 29, were also there to seal their union.

“I didn’t know that my cousin was also getting married on the same day. What a happy coincidence!

“My fiancée and I chose May 20 because it’s a special and romantic date,” Ong said.

The engineer added that he too had postponed his marriage to Tang, a domestic worker, for two years due to the pandemic.

“We originally planned to get married on May 20, 2020 and even booked the date earlier,” he said.

Music teacher Lee Rou Sheuen, 26, also got married to her high school sweetheart, programmer Woo Bin Wei, 26.

“We’ve known each other since we were high school classmates. Our friendship then turned into a relationship and now, a marriage.

“I can’t wait to share the rest of my life with my best friend.

“We chose this date not only because of the romantic notion behind it, but also because it’s the anniversary of our dating,” she added.

Johor Baru Tiong-Hua association president Ho Sow Tong said it was the first time a mass wedding had taken place after two years.

“Before the pandemic, we held such mass weddings about four times a year.

“We are delighted to welcome couples back to exchange vows on such a grand occasion,” he said.
