According to Iran’s official news agency IRNA, Police Service Spokesperson Mahdi gave information on the subject.
Mehdi said, “Patrols by car and on foot will be established across the country against those who persistently violate the headscarf rule. These people will be warned by the police. If the warnings are not heeded, the people in question will be referred to the judicial authorities.” said.
The spokesperson of the police asked the women to assist the police in this matter.
Demonstrations in Iran and the hijab requirement
Protests broke out across the country in September last year in Iran, when 22-year-old Mahsa Emini died after being detained by the morality police.
During the protests, the demands for the relaxation of the compulsory headscarf law, which has been implemented since 1979, came to the agenda again.
After the demonstrations that lasted for about 4 months, there are criticisms that women in some cities do not comply with the obligatory headscarf rules.
While it is seen on social media that some women in the country are walking around without a headscarf in the streets and workplaces, the pro-regime conservatives, who have been disturbed by this situation recently, are calling the authorities to implement the rules by reacting to the situation.
