Iranian instructions to the police for the hijab

Iran’s public prosecutor’s office told police to deal firmly with women who violate the country’s headscarf law.

According to the Iranian agency, the Public Prosecutor’s Office ordered the police to deal firmly with women who violate the veil law.

Where the new police orders came days after the decision of the Iranian Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, to appoint Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Radan as Commander-in-Chief of the Internal Security Forces in Iran, and in response to the campaign that has recently spread in Iran to remove the veil within the protests that have escalated since last September, after the death of Mahsa Amini, 22, who was arrested in Tehran for allegedly “not adhering to the Islamic dress,” died while in custody.

The Iranian agency also quoted Deputy Public Prosecutor Abd al-Samad Khorramabadi as confirming that “the penalty for violating the law, the headscarf, is imprisonment for a period ranging between 10 days and two months,” adding: “The courts must rule

“Additional penalties that can be imposed include a ban on leaving the country, denial of access to public services, and other penalties,” the official added.

And last week, the guide said that women who do not wear the “full” headscarf should not be considered “irreligious or opposed to the government.”

And last month, Mohammad Jaafar Montazeri, the Iranian public prosecutor, announced a review of the “hijab law” or head covering in his country, and confirmed that “parliament and the judiciary are working (on this issue),” referring to determining whether the law needs to be amended, and not Iran’s public prosecutor determines what can be amended in the law
