The unnamed woman was caught on camera kicking one of three burqa-clad ‘morality’ policewomen after they took issue with her western clothing. ‘I will wear whatever I like. It’s none of your business. You aren’t my parents,’ she says in the clip as she chases them down the platform.
Daily Mail (h/t Thereza B) The enraged woman then kicks one of the officers, sending her running away in fear before screaming at them: ‘You’ve corrupted this society with your ways!’ One of the morality police officers then screams at her – calling her a ‘b****’. Eventually one of the male metro operators decides to intervene to help the woman, telling the morality police: ‘You shouldn’t intervene.’
This is not the first time the Iranian morality police have been caught on camera trying to enforce strict religious clothing protocol. Last month, another woman was filmed being brutally beaten by a gang of agents after they deemed her red headscarf ‘insufficient’ coverage.
While in February Iranian police arrested 29 women for appearing in public without a headscarf as protests as they protested against the dress codes which have been in force since the Islamic revolution of 1979.
But wait, there’s more!
As Iranians sweat it out in the summer heat, another season of harassment of women continues. But at least one courageous young Iranian woman (below) fought back…and WON!
Iran’s morality police are cracking down harder than ever on those who disobey the Islamic dress code. You either comply with the code, or the morality police will throw you in jail, where you can count on being raped, beaten, and tortured.
The Islamic dress code, imposed by the 1979 revolution, mandates that from the start of menstruation, a woman outside of her home or in the presence of an unrelated man must completely cover her hair and neck and wear long, loose-fitting clothing to hide the contours of her body, as well as her arms and legs. Checkpoints run by the morality police have mushroomed all over Tehran and, residents say, it’s not uncommon to see women getting violently stuffed into one of their ubiquitous vans.
