Around 1,000 Iranians staged a rally on Friday to demand that the government fully enforce obligatory rules that women be veiled in public.
The demonstrators, both men and women, protested in central Tehran, carrying placards and chanting that the authorities “must stop the spread of vice” and enforce the hijab.
A defining feature of Iran’s interpretation of Islamic law since the 1979 revolution, hijab obliges women to cover their hair and much of their body in loose clothing when outside, regardless of their religion.
