I think the whole thing is a hoax meant to demonize Iran.

The term 'being Happy' is an urban term used to describe people who dance and make videos to the 'Happy' song that was referenced. It's a thing to do. That's what they are talking about with the word 'Happy' and that people were arrested for 'being Happy' - the urban term.

Hey, they knew the law and they broke it. They deserve whatever punishment they get.(in the annoying tone of so many here on ATS who spout this nonsense off again and again)
In April, The Guardian reported that Ayatollah Abdollah Javadi-Amoli, an influential cleric and an Islamic scholar based in Iran's holy city of Qom, referred to homosexuals as inferior to dogs and pigs in a speech.

I am going to say it one more time - this is MSM distraction fodder for the youth and sheep of America. "Here, be outraged that Iranians were arrested for "Happy" video, but don't get involved in politics to change your own corrupt government." It's more important we be outraged by some other countries social issues than to get involved and change your own.
I hope Iranians change their government if it's what they want, but ultimately I don't care. This is a distraction!!
Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.
Hmmmm, I'm not sure. They could also be saying, "Make sure we stay diligent and never let this happen in our country. Don't let government control every aspect of our personal lives. 'Cause if we let our guard down, this is what could happen to us." Could that also be the message here?

Just saw a piece on Channel 4 news here in the UK and it said that the "singers and dancers" have been released.
Even the President, Hassan Rouhani has spoken out in their defence,
