Taking a photo of a criminal in a public place by a member of the Assembly of Experts is not forbidden

Taking a photo of a criminal in public is not forbidden.

Mohsen Araki, a member of the Assembly of Experts and the Expediency Discernment Council, addressed the incident of a mother’s confrontation with a cleric at a clinic in Qom.

He stated that taking a photo of a specific person without their consent is a violation of their privacy. However, capturing an image of someone who committed a crime in public is not forbidden; in fact, it can be effective in refuting their claims or the claims of others under the principle of enjoining good and forbidding evil.

He continued by saying that those who claim taking a photo of this lady is forbidden lack understanding of jurisprudence and have a weak legal knowledge. We do not expect such individuals, who should speak based on principles, to make such statements.
