Certainly the answer is NO. There is no point in just banning stringed instruments. I am in Iran and I play electric guitar but nobody has no problem with me and other guitarist guys and gals I know. Yes we do have some serious limitations but I don't think the government is going to do such a thing. And when something is allowed in Iran, surely it is allowed all over the middle east.

No, but it might be banned in areas in the middle east like Iran.

No. Your nearly right. The main instruments are from the middle east and the asian continent.

Violins have been around for a long time, and similar forms of the violin have been around even longer. The modern European violin evolved from various stringed instruments of the Middle East. The earliest description of the instrument was in 1556.
