Iran cleric: Immodest dress causes intestine disease in women

Fundamentalist mullah Seyyed Abolhassan Mahdavi

NCRI – Failure to conform to the Islamic Republic’s dress code, including wearing the mandatory black ‘chador’, or veil, causes women in Iran to become sick and suffer from illnesses in the intestines and stomach, a senior cleric of the Iranian regime has said.

“The state should make education of the chador mandatory right from the start, since this will allow school pupils to grow up with modesty and they will see its effects in society,” said Seyyed Abolhassan Mahdavi, who holds the rank of Ayatollah in the regime and sits as a member of the Assembly of Experts, a clerical body of 88 senior mullahs who are tasked with appointing the regime’s Supreme Leader.

The English website of Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), has published the new book.

The main democratic Iranian opposition group People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI, or MEK) has been a pivotal force for the past 50 years in the struggle against fundamentalist interpretation of Islam. The PMOI's comprehensive interpretation of Islam has proven to be more persuasive and appealing to the young generation.

US Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) said on Sunday that the Iranian regime frequently violates international law, and he expects the same rule breaking should the U.S. reach a final nuclear agreement with Tehran.

“Unfortunately, Iran is an outlaw regime,” he said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

“They’re anti-American,” he said. “They’re terrorist-sponsoring.”

“Just two days ago, two days ago, the supposedly moderate president of Iran, the kind of people that the [Obama] administration hopes to empower, was in the streets chanting, ‘death to America’ while people were burning American flags and Israeli flags,” Sen. Cotton added.
