Mehdi Hashemian, deputy chief of the headquarters of ‘Promoting Good and Prohibiting Vice’ said, “Active employees and premier entities will be awarded substantially and spiritually for imposing virtues on women.”
The Iranian regime officials passed a new criminal bill in September of 2014, backing Basij and plainclothes thugs to attack women in the name of “Promoting Good and Prohibiting Vice”. The criminal bill resulted in a wave of acid attacks and stabbings of women, where at least 35 women were hospitalized and one was killed. Several activists and reporters were arrested for informing the public, but no one was arrested for the acid attacks. The new bill will intensify oppressive measures on the already defenseless female population in Iran.
