More suppression on the way for Iranian women

NCRI – Last night, Chief of the State Security Forces (SSF) in Greater Tehran, Brig. Gen. Ahmad-Reza Radan, in a sarcastic tone directed at Tehran residents said, “[Street] mannequins are stooges for others,” the state television reported.

He brazenly continued, “If you are planning not to obey the declared dress codes, you must be afraid of the Police. We have publicly announced the official dress codes [for women].

The following are forbidden to wear: short pants, tight dress, headbands in place of scarves, and tight and short garments…Presence of street mannequins are against the code of ethics of the society. After we dealt with the women mannequins then we will turn to young men and what they wear…The police will be swift when it comes to securing the society.”   

Last week, in a clear insult to Tehran residents that their loved ones had been arrested by the SSF units on the charges of “mal-veiling,” Radan said, “Bring some pants for your children to put on and take them home.”
