Tehran police in new dress code crackdown 
As the summer approaches in Iran, the oppression of women flairs up again by the Iranian regime. According to Associated France Press, police in Tehran are conducting a new crackdown on women wearing mandatory headscarves improperly or in ’vulgar’ dress, the city’s police chief said. Such operations, which see police screening foot and vehicle traffic at major junctions and shopping centers, are conducted fairly often in Iran. The police chief, Hossein Sajedinia, said the crackdown was ’asked for by the people,’ the Fars news agency reported. Women wearing ’bad headscarves, bad dress, and model-type women in vulgar dress’ would be stopped, he said. Typically, such women are fined or detained in police stations until relatives collect them, hours later with more modest clothing. Sadejinia said that companies importing ’illegal clothes’ that do not comply with Islamic dress standards would be given a warning or closed.
