But a 25-year-old Iranian says his Facebook activity has led to his father’s detention in a notorious prison in Tehran. And now he’s struggling to find a way to free him.

“I want my family to forgive me,” Yashar Khameneh said. “But I believe what I believe in.”

A year ago, while studying at a college in Holland, Khameneh joined a Facebook page that made fun of a top Shiite Muslim imam, Ali al-Naqi al-Hadi. Naqi is one of 12 imams considered successors to the Prophet Mohammed. Called “Infallibles,” the imams are protected by law in Iran from ridicule or even frivolous comments. One can be arrested for insulting them.
