The superintendent of an elementary school in Abadan, southwestern Iran, cut a girl’s hair for not properly covering it.
On May 6, 2018, in an all-girl elementary school in Golestanshahr of Abadan, the superintendent used scissors and cut the hair of a girl child because it had stuck out of her veil.
The girl called Narges who suffers from astma had an attack because of this offensive treatment and was taken to hospital.
In response to objections to such offending measure, the superintendent said, “The schoolmaster is a man and her hair sticking out could have roused him.”
In a similar incident in December 2017, officials of a girls’ school in Islamabad village in Orumiyeh, capital of the West Azerbaijan Province, the school’s principal and master went to the court yard in the company of several State Security forces cut the hair of those girls whose hair stuck out of their scarves.
