Submission + - Grand Ayatollah Issues Fatwa Stating High Speed Internet is against Sharia

An anonymous reader writes: What at first instance looks like a hoax turns out to be a real statement from Irans Ayatollah. http://www.iranhumanrights.org....
A Grand Ayatollah in Iran has determined that access to high-speed and 3G Internet is “against Sharia” and “against moral standards.”
This puts ofcourse the discussion about net neutrality in a different perspective. Is internet throttling by the ISP then allowed? Up till what speed then? Luckily for the Iranians, the Fatwa is not mandatory. Also: once the new network with censorship is in place, the Fatwa will most likely be removed
