Iran impounds more than 40,000 cars for hijab offences

TEHRAN // Iran has impounded tens of thousands of cars since March because women inside the vehicles had not properly covered their hair with a hijab, Tehran’s traffic police said Tuesday.

“Over the past eight months, more than 40,000 cases of bad hijab have been dealt with,” said Brigadier General Teymour Hosseini, quoted by Iran’s ISNA news agency.

“In most cases, the cars were impounded and cases were referred to the judiciary,” he said, while some of the women stopped could face fines or warnings.

    Soon coming next to your town in Canada. Women not wearing hijab/burka/niqab would be subjected to public stoning, men found not wearing beard & Arabic garb would be sentenced to flogging, courtesy our traitor politicians & imbecile pack of liberals & progressives.
    Sarcasm apart, if things are not changed soon it is going to be a reality for our children.

    Perfect pic.

    These are crazy people. Over time their women are going to get very, very annoyed. Then watch out.

    I have an acquaintance who’s a York Region COP. I asked him how he handles traffic stops when the driver is a Muslima in a Niqab – he told me he tells the driver to wait for a female officer (that he summons to the scene) to arrive and he stands by while the female officer deals with the driver.

    It’s a great thing that the Imam-in-Chief, Hussein Obama, made a nuclear agreement with Iran. As Jay said, “these are crazy people”. 100% absolutely.

    I see a lot of purdah cars with heavily tinted rear and side windows.
