New restrictions are going to be imposed on girl students of Ahwaz’s Jondi-Shapour School of Medical Sciences in a bid to overcome women’s defiance of the compulsory dress code imposed by the regime.
The announcement was made by cultural dean, Farhad Hamzeh-louii, in an interview with the state-run ISNA news agency when he spoke of the school’s year-long planning in this regard.
Hamzeh-louii said there are going to be bi-weekly meetings on Hijab where relevant officials will be discussing new measures and the musts and must-not’s.
The Council of Promoting Virtue, tasked with clamping down on girl students, will also be actively involved in this plan. (The state-run ISNA news agency – October 21, 2016)
