Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Monday and picked headlines from 22 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Newspapers on Monday covered the remarks made by President Hassan Rouhani in an address to Iranian people in the southwestern city of Yasuj. President Rouhani announced that the country’s economic growth rate has increased to 4.4%, and also voiced his scepticism towards the US.

A Parliamentary statement against the insults to President Rouhani was also widely covered. The lawmakers urged the Judiciary to prosecute the insulters.

A popular TV show, “Dorehami”, and its famous host , the popular comedian Mehran Modiri, also appeared on newspaper front pages after an alleged insult by Modiri to two respected Sunni figures during a Saturday night episode. Several MPs have urged the IRIB to apologize and prosecute the perpetrators.
