(Scroll down for video) The Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, came under fire from Islamic scholars after he was seen hugging the mother of Hugo Chavez, the late leader of Venezuela, according to photos uploaded to the internet.

The photo of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, that shows him consoling the mother of the late President Hugo Chavez, has sparked political controversy in Iran as well.

Conservatives are angry at Ahmadinejad saying the president had committed a sin by touching a woman, because she is not a family member.

Ahmadinejad is accused of following the deviant culture, a phrase that has been used to remove him from the Iranian supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
