In hilarious remarks made at the Friday prayer, Isfahan’s Friday prayer leader mullah Yousef Tabatabaii-Nejad, said, “Some of the Iranian society’s problems are caused by the government’s not giving priority to men in employment.”
Stressing that the duty of breadwinning is that of men, he brazenly addressed women and said, “Let men have the first priority in receiving employment and it is only in such circumstances that they can marry you. Then you can also stay in your homes independently and be your husbands’ wives.”
It should be noted that unemployment rate among female work force is over 87% in Iran and many households whose breadwinners are single mothers live under the poverty line.
