Will Iran's autocracy stop forcing women to wear Islamic head coverings?

Following the outburst of protests in the past few months, Iran's autocracy appears to have made a step towards abandoning the offensive practice of forcing women to wear burkas and other modest outfits:
Iran's attorney general has said the morality police, the force which detained Mahsa Amini and enforces the country's dress code has been "closed".

Mohammad Jafar Montazeri was cited by the Iranian Labour News Agency saying that the force had been disbanded.
Let's hope that's true, because for all we know, it could just as well be taqqiya they're spouting. We can't let down our guard.
Iran's Interior Ministry, which is the authority in charge of the morality police, has yet to comment on the status of the force.

Mr Montazeri was quoted saying: "The same authority which has established this police has shut it down", adding that the morality police was not under the judiciary's authority, which "continues to monitor behavioural actions at the community level".

The morality police was sanctioned by the UK following the death of Ms Amini, 22, who died in police custody after she was detained for allegedly not properly covering her hair with a headscarf - known as the hijab - which is mandatory for Iranian women.

The force has also gained criticism for its violent crackdown on the subsequent nationwide protests following Ms Amini's death.
What's been the status quo for over 4 decades already, ever since the ayatollah took over in 1979, has got to cease. The protests shouldn't stop until the whole regime is brought down.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
