Iranian woman who removed headscarf jailed for two years

Prosecutor says woman took off obligatory hijab in Tehran street to ‘encourage corruption’

An Iranian woman who publicly removed her veil in protest against Iran’s compulsory headscarf law has been sentenced to two years in prison, the judiciary said on Wednesday.
Tehran’s chief prosecutor, Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi, who announced the sentence, did not give the woman’s identity but said she intended to appeal against the verdict, the judiciary’s Mizan Online news agency reported.
Dolatabadi said the unidentified woman took off her headscarf in Tehran’s Enghelab Street to “encourage corruption through the removal of the hijab in public”.
The woman will be eligible for parole after three months, but Dolatabadi criticised what he said was a “light” sentence and said he would push for the full two-year penalty.
More than 30 Iranian women have been arrested since the end of December for publically removing their veils in defiance of the law.
Most have been released, but many are being prosecuted.
Women showing their hair in public in Iran are usually sentenced to far shorter terms of two months or less, and fined $25.
Iranian law, in place since the Islamic Revolution of 1979, stipulates that all women, Iranian or foreign, Muslim or non-Muslim, must be fully veiled in public at all times.
But the zeal of the country’s morality police has declined in the past two decades, and a growing number of Iranian women in Tehran and other large cities often wear loose veils that reveal their hair.
In some areas of the capital, women are regularly seen driving cars with veils draped over their shoulders.
Dolatabadi said he would no longer accept such behaviour, and had ordered the impound of vehicles driven by socially rebellious women.
The prosecutor said some “tolerance” was possible when it came to women who wear the veil loosely, “but we must act with force against people who deliberately question the rules on the Islamic veil”, according to Mizan Online.

NEWS JUST IN

12160 is receiving reports that large numbers of radical feminists are gathering outside Iranian embassies in many major cities to protest this violation of rights, while others have descended en masse to airports across the world, having made known their intention of journeying to Tehran, to protest this injustice directly.

Oh wait...

No.

It's not happening.

This is not the business of America.

I will add, that I put a disco in the basement of the crown prince of iran's mansion after the CIA installed Shah's regime fell.  While unloading my truck, I saw the princess 30 feets away. I was stunned by her beauty, absolutely stunned. I recall having to force the next breath of air... I was also stunned that now i understood why they wear veils. If I'd been driving I would have caused an accident.

I don't care if anyone thinks this is unpopular. It is not our business how other nations manage their internal affairs.Unless of course, "diversity" does not apply to countries, only to the peasants, and those who would end up as palestinians, in a global world order, where some animals are more equal than others.

The name was Palhavi
