Mir Hossein Mousavi said the government cannot even tolerate a wedding celebration and added "Today being Muslim is being used as an excuse for great oppression."

The wedding in question refers to a wedding celebration at the home of Mohsen Mirdamadi, secretary-general of reformist organization, Islamic Iran Participation Front. The wedding of Mirdamadi's child was attended by a number of prominent reformist figures and a number of photos of the event were published on the internet.
