Women in Iran banned from wearing hats – Hefty Bags OK

NCRI – Women in Iran have been banned from wearing hats as head covers this winter, according to the regulation announced by ‘moral police’.

Chief of the moral police Colonel Mohammad Massoud Zahedian described the wearing of hats as an example of ‘improper dress’, adding: “It will certainly will not be considered as a complete veil for the women.”

He said that being ‘covered up for women was not necessarily acceptable to the police’.

He added in remarks published on the official police website: “Covering up by wearing clothing could even constitute a show off that targets public chastity.”
