A senior cleric in Iran has declared that high speed Internet is unethical and contrary to humanitarian principles, state-run news outlets reported on Tuesday.

Makarem Shirazi, made the remarks in response to a question put to him by Internet users, via his website.

Shirazi said 3G — third generation mobile communications technology — and broadband internet were morally wrong, and that there needed to be standards to prevent users from dangers such as “immoral and inhumane” videos and photos, rumors, and espionage.

Although Iran has the highest total number of Internet users in the Middle East, its average data speed is about a tenth of the global average.
