Pressure builds on Iran’s women on behalf of state officials and security forces. Hossein Ashtari, SSF commander, threatened women who violate the hijab dress code in their cars. He said: “confronting the symbols of corruption is the responsibility of the SSF under law and the police does nothing that is outside the context of the law”!
Ashtari pointed out to the presence of women in sports stadiums and said: “the presence of women in sports stadiums has a lot of controversy; police has to carry out its duty against any move that results in disorder and lawlessness.”
