‘A Night Party in Hell’- Mehdi Misaghiyyeh, who was a fugitive from the wrath of the Muslims a few years ago, today, in the name of film and cinema, is playing with the religious beliefs of a nation.

The movie, A Night Party in Hell, which, unfortunately, also has a licence from the Ministry of the Interior, has been showing at three first-class cinemas for some time. We ask the Ministry of the Interior whether it is appropriate to show such a movie in an Islamic country, where the Muslim leader of the world [lives]? We will explain the reasons and causes for showing and producing this movie next week.
