SSF Commander in the northern city of Sume’eh-sara, stressed that women’s veiling has become a major concern for the regime’s authorities.
“Destroying the regime’s values is one of the impacts of mal-veiling.”
Aghajani added, “We have 23 organizations bearing responsibilities on hijab.” (State-run ISNA news agency – June 29, 2016)
In the meantime, the Judiciary chief in East Azerbaijan Province gave a more accurate figure and said, “Veiling and virtue is a law! 27 bodies, including the State Security Force and the Judiciary, are tasked with duties in this regard.” (State-run IRNA news agency – June 30, 2016)
It thus turns out that at least one new force has been added to the 26 agencies already in charge of suppression of women during Rouhani’s tenure.
