Tehran, Iran, Apr. 20 – An Iranian man was flogged in public in the city of Karaj, north-west of Tehran, for drinking alcohol, a state-run daily reported on Thursday.

The man, identified only as Afrasiab H., was flogged 74 times on Wednesday morning, the daily Javan wrote.

The sentence was carried out in a public in the district of Mohammad-Shahr.

Afrasiab was also charged with selling alcoholic beverages.

Thousands of young people are flogged in Iran each year on trivial charges that include drinking alcohol, attending mixed-sex parties, and sexual misconduct. Iran’s Judiciary views flogging as the appropriate punishment for combating moral crimes, particularly among the youth. Islamic judges insist on carrying out the punishment in town squares, as “a lesson for all to see”.
