The Public Prosecutor of Mazandaran, northern Iran, announced that the Judiciary would be harsh on those women who do not cover their hair in their cars.
“If any woman is detected without the veil in a car, her car will be impounded and she will be turned in to the Judiciary,” said Public Prosecutor Assadollah Jaafari.
“Despite the fact that some people consider cars as a private area, I do not believe in this and any kind of dropping the veil inside a car will be legally dealt with,” he added.
“Also, dropping one’s veil on the beaches, during jet-skiing, and on powerboats, will be legally dealt with.”
Jaafari also stressed on monitoring and controlling all shops and manufacturers of clothing that violate Islamic norms. He said, “Supplying unsuitable clothes is one of the important challenges that Islamic societies face.” (The state-run ILNA news agency – Aug 27, 2017)
