Iran has issued more than a thousand warnings and arrested dozens in a new attempt to force women whose dress is deemed inappropriate to adhere to the Iranian regime’s dress code, officials said today
Tehran (AFP), 2 September 2015 – Women drivers in Iran’s capital could have their cars impounded by police if they are caught driving with a poorly fixed veil or without their heads covered, a police chief said Wednesday.
“If a (female) driver in a car is poorly veiled or has taken her veil off, the vehicle will be seized in accordance with the law,” the head of Tehran’s traffic police, Teymour Hosseini, was quoted as saying by the official ISNA news agency.
He added that any woman who had her car seized would need to obtain a court order before getting it back.
Since the Islamic Revolution in 1979, wearing a veil in public has been mandatory for all women in Iran, however Iranian women have defied the Iranian regime until today.
