Iran: ‘Bad Hijab’ Woman Beats Up Cleric.(EAWV). By Golnaz Esfandiari.’I politely [told] her to cover herself up,’ said Hojatoleslam Ali Beheshti, an Iranian cleric in the city of Shamirzad in Semnan Province, describing a recent encounter with a woman he believed was improperly veiled. ‘She responded to me by saying: ‘You [should] close your eyes.”
The cleric, who spoke to the semi-official Mehr news agency, said he repeated his warning to the ‘bad hijab’ woman, which is a way of describing women who do not fully observe the Islamic dress code that became compulsory following the 1979 revolution. ‘Not only didn’t she cover herself up, but she also insulted me. I asked her not to insult me anymore, but she started shouting and threatening me,’ Beheshti said.
‘She pushed me and I fell to the ground on my back. From that point on, I don’t know what happened. I was just feeling the kicks of the woman who was beating me up and insulting me….
… Women being mistreated by the police because of their hijabs have become a common scene on the streets of the Iranian capital and other cities, especially during the hot summer months when the hijab crackdown intensifies…. (see video below)
These people are barbarians. For a moment, I thought that the location of the video was Coney Island Avenue, Brooklyn, New York where there is a concentrated area of Muslims.
I can only pray that any Brooklynite or New Yorker should they witnesses such an act would not stand by like the idiots in the above video.
It is a hypocritical and shameful that feminists here in America are attacking Republicans in a made up war on women yet remain silent in clear sight of the oppression of women in Islamic countries around the world.
As for the woman (women) beating up clerics, I hope they kick their arses all the way into next month.
