Iranís Leader urges tolerance in addressing Hijab

Iranís Leader urges tolerance in addressing Hijab
Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has urged tolerance in addressing the issue of bad Hijab in the society.

During his visit to Iranís northeastern province of North Khorasan, Ayatollah Khamenei said everyone has shortcomings and some peopleís shortcoming is their appearance. The Leader added that although ďcommanding right and forbidding wrongĒ is necessary, it should not lead to creating hatred.

The Iranian government has established Morality Police to control mandatory Islamic dress code known as Hijab that became compulsory following the victory of 1979 revolution. The Morality police, who were particularly active during summer, arrested women with bad Hijab, filed a dossier against them and freed them only after a relative brought them proper dresses. The arrests and the forcesí performance led to high tension in the society and among women during summer.
