President Rouhani’s wife sparks outrage with ‘wild party’ in Iran

Hardliners have been criticizing Iran’s First Lady for holding a gathering to mark Women’s Day, celebrated on the birthday of Prophet Muhammad’s daughter Fatima. Rouhani’s office slammed allegations in an official statement: “It is most shocking and regrettable that even a pure innocent gathering cannot escape an orchestrated chorus of gossip, slander and politically motivated lies filling the air.”     Hardliners are keen on finding faults with Rouhani.  These same hardliners rarely criticized Ahmadinejad’s policies.
