Iran: A plan to confront women in northern Iran


The State Security Force (SSF) is going to launch a plan in Karaj-Chaloos Road to clampdown on women under the pretext of improper veiling.
Bakhsh-Ali Kamrani, commander of SSF in Alborz Province (central Iran), said, “The plan aims to reduce the social harms and instances of improper veiling currently observed in this road.” (The state-run ISNA news agency, June 25, 2017)
Earlier in May, it was announced that “the Interior Ministry’s central headquarters in charge of protecting public security and citizens’ rights” will start inspecting government institutions and departments in late June 2017 to oversee the staff’s observation of “veil and chastity.”
