A plan is to be implemented against shop owners who offer unconventional clothing for women, said the commander of the State Security Force (SSF) in Isfahan, central Iran.
The SSF Commander of Isfahan said on April 27, 2018, that the plan was called, “Tat’hir,” which means purifying or cleansing. He said, “Hijab (veil) and chastity are the (Iranian) Revolution’s strongest barrier against infiltration of the enemies. To this end, a special plan called “Tat’hir” is going to be on the agenda under the command of Isfahan Province’s SSF. The objective of this plan is to deal with suppliers who offer unconventional clothing for women and cause improper clothing and violation of chastity in society.” (The state-run Young Journalists Club – April 27, 2018)
Earlier on March 24, 2018, Nasser Makarem Shirazi, one of the regime’s religious scholars had proclaimed that “Hijab” had been transformed from a secondary commandment of Islam into one of its symbols.
