Iranian Police Demand More Officers To Enforce Hijab Requirement on Women

Iranian Police Demand More Officers To Enforce Hijab Requirement on Women

“So many women flout the rules that…existing manpower is not enough to enforce hijab.”

Iranian police are running short on enforcers to compel women to wear Islamic headscarves, or hijabs, in public. Iran’s deputy chief of law enforcement asked the regime for more manpower to implement the sharia-mandated hijab rules, media reports said. 

Iranian Islamic ‘morality’ police patrols streets to enforce hijab which was first made compulsory when the Islamic fanatics grabbed power over forty years ago. Apart from the sharia ‘morality’ police, militia belonging to Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), a U.S.-designated terrorist group, were helping the law enforcement to force women into compliance. 

Women who defy Iran’s hijab rules are threatened with rape, torture, and long prison sentences. Last August, Tehran’s Islamic court sentenced a 20-year-old women right’s activist for 24 years, including 15 for “spreading prostitution by taking off her hijab.” Even men who dare to speak out against the law can end up in jail. 

The Czech Republic based Radio Farda reported the Iranian Sharia police’s latest demand: 

The deputy commander of the Islamic Republic’s law enforcement has complained that his forces are “really left single-handed” in policing “moral security” of the Iranian society.

Meanwhile, Isfahan’s governor has announced that he intends to award a residential unit to officers and volunteers in charge of “promotion of virtue and prevention of vice.” (…)

The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC)-run Tasnim news agency cited the Deputy Commander of Iranian police Brigadier General Qassem Rezaei as saying on Thursday, July 30, the law enforcement forces have been left alone in maintaining moral security of the society.

This claim can be disputed, since many so-called volunteers stop women in the streets and shame them to cover themselves more fully. The state has allowed “pious” Muslims to enforce its dress code. On the other hand, so many women flout the rules that perhaps the existing manpower is not enough to enforce hijab rules.

In a meeting with the representative of the Islamic Republic’s Supreme Leader, General Rezaei lambasted other state bodies for not cooperating with the police on that matter, adding, “Nobody is helping the police, save volunteers and the members of Baseej,” (Basij – the IRGC’s militia).

The call for more moral policing comes amid growing push-back on Iranian streets against regime enforcers targeting women failing to comply with Islamic dress code. Courageous passersby have stood up to the Islamic ‘vice police’ harnessing women on the streets. 

While the Islamic regime is busy subjugating women and tightening sharia law, country’s oil workers have gone on strike protesting falling wages and rising prices. With state-controlled economy crumbling under pressure from U.S. sanctions. Iran’s currency is at its lowest value ever against the U.S. dollar. 

The failing regime has pinned all its hopes on a trade and military pact with Communist China. Beijing promises a $400 billion investment in Iranian economy aimed at securing oil-rich nation’s resources. China will also be sending 5000 security personnel to secure its investments and gain access to Iranian air and naval bases, news reports said

And that thunderous roar you hear is the thousands, no, millions of feminist voices expressing their outrage and their …

…wait, what?
No?
Oh.
Go figure.

Trump comes out before the camera, he speaks, he takes questions. He takes charge. He takes the heat. He’s a leader. Naturally he wants to debate Biden.

But Biden: He’s asleep in the basement. There is pressure. Something must be done. Finally, his wife takes action” “Jill Biden vows husband will debate Trump — ‘He’ll Be There.'”

Wow! There’s a leader for you. Suppose, just suppose, in response, President Trump sends out the First Lady: “First Lady vows Husband will debate Biden. ‘He’ll be there.'”

That would be crazy, right? But it’s okay for Biden to send out his wife to speak for him. If elected you would not see any more of Biden then than you do now. Go figure.

We have no end of busybody Karens here in the US that I would be glad to volunteer for this job.
(Pitches voice up and shrill)
“Excuse me! Excuse me! You’re not wearing the approved clothing for going outside. If you don’t change immediately, I’m afraid I’m going to have to call the manager. I mean the enforcement squad.”

Win/Win. They get annoying busybodies to enforce their laws, we get rid of annoying busybodies who pester us.

yet these same people are calling to defund of police.

That photo should be labeled “Iranians parading their dirty laundry in public”.

Wow…so empowering to women…its awesome that so many US companies are trying to normalize and encourage it over here/s….

As a women to me a hajib is like seeing another woman in chains

I don’t know, lots of the women on the left would be more palatable to look at it in public if they wore the burka, as pictured above. Who wants to look at overweight, dyke haired, sexually repulsive women?

    As a woman, this has been my point all along: they are sexless, soulless, and most probably childless.

    They’re use value goes as far as BLM and not any further.

FYI: this was supposed to post responsive to UserP above.
Instead, it tallied a down vote — and as an addendum to my own post, ‘reply’ tallied another down vote.

???

Why is a story about hijab illustrated with a photo of women in burqas? Burqas are not at all required in Iran, and are not common.

The mask police here have much to learn from the Iranians.

There’s no clearer illistration of the disconnect between the fundamentalist mullas n the occupied Persians.

BierceAmbrose | August 5, 2020 at 8:20 pm

Nobody who’s known a Persian woman would try to tell her what to wear, or want to.

You Go Girls!

“Where are the global feminist movement?”

They’re too busy dismantling the laws that allow feminism to survive and thrive on any level at all.

That is in Minnesota….RIGHT?
