The Iranian regime has ratified an amendment to the misogynist bill dubbed “Protecting sanctity of Hijab and morality” thereby adding to the scale of oppression and pressure against Iranian women. According to this amendment, all women employees have to wear a uniform determined by the Iranian regime, according to Irna State News agency Nov. 2nd.
The Women’s Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran
in a statement November 7, said: "This amendment is far more misogynist and repressive than the directive of Rouhani’s interior ministry in mid-June to all provincial governorates and governmental agencies.
As acknowledged by Laleh Eftekhari, speaker of women’s faction of the parliament, “Country’s ministries, Guidance, Intelligence and security agencies have been involved in drafting this bill and the government has also fully participated in it”.
According to the Iranian regime officials, this bill will not only cover governmental agencies but will include private companies and institutions, kindergartens, parks and recreational sites, and businesses.
The bill also specifies fines, detention and slashing wages of women employees on the pretext of “mal-veiling”.
According to this bill, “women’s occupation in businesses… should observe segregation from men and working hours of 7 am to 10 pm. Failing to observe this article will be considered a violation and the business that has violated the law will be closed down for one week by the security forces and if repeated will be closed for a month.”
According to another article of this oppressive bill that was adopted in mid August by regime’s parliament, women drivers who fail to observe the medieval laws of Hijab imposed by the regime will face heavy fines and their drivers licenses will be revoked. Moreover, “the driver is responsible for whatever goes on in the car and thus drivers are accountable for the way their passengers are dressed”. As such, even the driver of the vehicle should pay a fine for the “mal-veiling” of the passengers.
Ms. Sarvnaz Chitsaz, chairwoman of Women’s Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran ( NCRI ), stated: Expansion of the dimension of oppression of women and the youth that are the force of change in the society and the active role of Rouhani in the adoption and implementation of this repressive bill demonstrate that the “moderation” of this deceptive mullah is nothing but a sham and as far as the fed up population under suppression are concerned, various factions of this regime are no different. She called on freedom-loving women and youth of Iran who have fought off various oppressive schemes and pressures imposed by this regime during its rule to expand their protests against these oppressive policies. She said: Surely this misogynist and medieval regime that the Iranian people call the Godfather of ISIS will be overthrown by these valiant women and youth.
According to the Iranian resistance statement On October 6, for the
eighth consecutive day, Iraqi forces prevented food, fuel and other basic necessities from getting into Camp Liberty the base of Iranian refugees in Iraq after the rocket attack. The Iranian regime attacked Camp Liberty on Thursday Oct. 29 with 80 missiles killing 24 residents and wounded many more. The Iranian residents of Camp Liberty are the protected persons under the 4th Geneva conversions and were promised protection in writing by US, UN and Iraqi government in 2011. Camp Liberty was supposed to be a TTL-Temporary Transit Location while the residents are relocated to safe countries. Since 2011 only a handful of residents have been relocated to Europe. The majority of those relocated to Albania was done by the Iranian resistance's money and efforts. The Iranian regime's rocket attack on the unarmed Camp Liberty residents have faced with international condemnations. The Iranian regime announced in its media last week that a group called "al-Mukhtar" had taken responsibility for the attack but a few days later on Friday Nov. 6, Sumaria News Website announced that The leader of ‘Mukhtar Army’ Wathiq al-Battat has declared: I did not hit Camp Liberty and did not take responsibility for this attack... But I am… entrapped in a great conspiracy.
Sat. evening Nov. 7, the Freedom loving Iranians gathered at Parliament Hill in a candlelight vigil for
the 24 slain residents of Camp Liberty. They called for the protection of Liberty residents and halt of relations with Iranian regime, the main expert of terrorism in the world.
The Iranian Resistance on Nov. 4, urged immediate action by the Secretary-General, the Security Council, the Human Rights Council, relevant UN Rapporteurs, and all human rights agencies throughout the world to save the lives of seven Sunni political prisoners on the verge of execution.
The Iranian Resistance also calls on religious leaders and scholars worldwide, as well as Muslim clerics, Sunni or Shia, to join the campaign against these criminal executions.
Six of these male prisoners, Kaveh Vaissi, Pouria Mohammadi, Taleb Maleki, Mohammad Yavar Rahimei, Kaveh Sharifei and Bahman Rahimei were transferred on November 1 to Ward 4 of Gohardasht (Rajai Shahr) Prison in Karaj that is controlled by the revolutionary guards. All of these prisoners have been sentenced to death on the charge of “propaganda against the system, corruption of earth, and Moharebeh (enmity against God)”.
The third prisoner identified as Boyouk Mohebbi, had spent 13 years in prison in Mashhad before he was hanged.
The statement, published by the country’s official news agency, says that members of this group had planned to carry on terrorist acts in that country, but their plot was thwarted after their members were arrested. Following the arrests, a huge cache of arms and explosives were discovered.
Preliminary investigations show that these men worked for the Iranian regime and had direct contacts with it. They had also received gun and explosive training in Iran.
Bahrain foreign minister has said on Monday that the danger from the Iranian regime is no less than the danger from Daesh, the Arabic name for the ISIS.
