Iran’s hijab to be decided by popular polls

۶ تیر ۱۳۸۹

Font Size + | - Reset

The head of Iran’s police, Esmail Ahmadi-Moghaddam, has announced that a poll will be conducted on the enforcement of hijab in every province. News agency ISNA reports that Moghaddam has said that the directive to enforce hijab (Muslim dress code) more restrictively is a provincial responsibility and must be based on popular surveys.
He added that enforcement of this directive is not the priority of the security forces and the provinces may also decide that it is not their priority either. The recent wave of conservative backlash against laxer forms of wearing the veil was surprisingly condemned by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who two weeks ago announced that he does not support harsh confrontation of “bad veiling” offences by the security forces. Islamic Republic hardliners who are normally supportive of Ahmadinejad criticized him for his statements on hijab. Hardline politician Ahmad Jannati announced that “no one should restrict the security forces in their fight against bad veiling.”
Tehran Governor Morteza Tamaddon later said that the government does not intend to “detain” people for veiling violations but rather address the issue through cultural promotion and education.
