Dating site ‘prostitution’, says Iran

A popular Iranian internet dating website that claimed to be helping people find a spouse and start families has been banned for “promoting prostitution”, on the advice of leading Islamic clerics.Hamsarchat.com, which boasts of having chalked up more than 1.6m page visits, was also fined and ordered to pay back money collected from clients, after a judge consulted senior ayatollahs – known as “sources of emulation” – following a complaint from Tehran’s public prosecutor.
