Hejab (veil)


Persian architect

It seems that the ba hejab , bi hejab market in Iran has warmed up again. According to the news coming out of Iran "warmed up" would be an understatement.
The guidance Police has already started a campaign of intrusions against those of whom thay feel are not sufficiently veiled.
Even a member of parliament, seyed Mehdi Tabatabi, has made recommendations to those whom are not prepared to abide by the Islamic hejab code and has advised them to leave the country for there is no place for them in an islamic Iran.
Honestly,what have we come to?
It is a sad state of affairs.

The Iran's president condemned the recent actions taken agasint the women to tighten their covers.He also pointed out he belives force is the worst way to persuade people to change their action( very paradoxical indeed)as a woman living in Iran,I have other concerns than just being worried about Hejab issue..discrimination against woman..list goes on..
Greetings from Iran

For Spooky witch:Thank you for your insight. I agree with you that there are other issues at hand concerning women in Iran, but at the same time I belive that every issue counts. As far as the President's speech goes I don't think that he would have condemn it if he had not felt the social pressure to do so.


For Somi:Thank you, very kind of you.By the way I don't know professor Rezvani.
