“While inspecting and dealing with department stores that sell unconventional clothing depicting anti-cultural and Western Satanism symbols, and trousers known as Western style trousers, or so-called torn trousers in different parts of the city, the police have begun to enforce the law in the form of giving notices and warnings, getting commitments and shutting down stores”, the state-run Rokna news agency on September 7 quoted Col. Jokar as saying.
Jokar threatened clothing retailers with sealing their shops.
“The retailers will be harshly dealt with if seen repeating sale of such cloths,” he went on to add.
