Alam al-Hoda, the Friday prayer leader of Mashhad in a provincial event held for ‘Promoting Virtue’ said, “Some officials and apparatus are only satisfied with verbal warnings. This is a simple solution for non-important issues… the issue of the expansion of vice has spread to an extent that any action in this regard is always one too few.
There are many revolutionary entities in the country that are active on hijab and virtue. However, we continue to witness the growth of mal-veiling across the country.”
