A total of 10,000 drivers received warnings last week because of violating the compulsory dress code – veiling – in their cars.
The spokesman for the State Security Force announced that according to the instructions received from the commander of the State Security Force, the SSF deals with drivers who violate the norms and confiscates their cars.
Saeed Montazer-ol Mahdi told reporters, “Wearing the veil is a norm that must be observed in an Islamic society and everyone is obliged to observe it.”
The SSF spokesman reiterated that 26 agencies in the clerical regime are instructed to deal with enforcement of the compulsory veil, and added, “In case of detection of violating drivers who take off their veils in their cars, their license number is sent to the security police and the driver will be summoned. The least is that the violators be deprived of receiving services… If the violation is detected by the traffic police, and in case of unveiling, the car will be transferred to a parking until the case is legally addressed.”
The remarks and the figures revealed by the clerical regime’s SSF spokesman bespeak of a general attitude of rebellion among Iranian women in taking action to defy the compulsory veil.
