Traditionally Iranian statetelevision each year airs with Ramadan the prayer Rabanna sung by famous Iranian singer Mohammad Reza Shajarian.
Since Shajarian last year openly spoke of his criticism towards Iranian presidential election, has the prayer been aired, sung by another singer.
Several Iranian websites, including parlemannews report that the version sung by Shajarian is banned on all its channels, but officials deny this.
The singer told in an interview that the president said people who protested against him are dirt and dust and that he said that his voice belongs to the dirt and dust, and that he wouldn't allow state television to air his voice.
