Tehran Police Chief: Easing Up on Religious Violations

Tehran Police Chief: Easing Up on Religious Violations Tehran Police Chief: Easing Up on Religious Violations

Police in the Iranian capital of Tehran have said that women flouting the country's conservative dress code laws will no longer be arrested. Tehran police chief Gen. Hossein Rahimi was quoted as saying by the reformist daily Sharq.

It added that those repeatedly doing so could still be subject to legal action.

Critics say it remains to be seen whether the new approach will be enforced, according to the Journal. Rahimi said more than 100 counseling centers have been opened in Tehran province alone and that nearly 8,000 offenders have already taken the courses the centers offer.

Tehran's chief of police said on Wednesday that his officers are lightening up on people who fail to observe religious rules.

In April 2016, General Sajedinia announced there were 7,000 undercover morality police reporting on matters such as "bad hijab" - a blanket term usually referring to alleged un-Islamic dress by women.

These cases generally led to fines and temporary impounding of the vehicle, the spokesman said at the time.

Mandatory head coverings have been a key symbol of Islamic rule since the revolution almost four decades ago, and are fiercely defended by hardliners.

Young Iranians have called for officials to peel back restrictions on their appearances, helping vote in a relatively moderate president in 2013 who they believed would act on their behalf.

Mandatory headscarves have been key symbol of Iran's Islamic rule since the revolution of 1979, fiercely defended by hardliners but ever harder to enforce, particularly in wealthier areas where loose and colourful scarves have become the norm.

Though his comments attracted criticism from clerics and supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, there have been fewer reports of Iran's morality police stopping women.

But just last week, Tehran's police arrested more than 200 people for allegedly drinking and dancing in celebration of the winter solstice.
