Scarves in cars, Iranian police warn women again

Tehran: Iranian police have once again warned women to wear headscarves in cars.

According to the details, the Iranian police have once again instructed women to take a mandatory scarf in the vehicles. Iranian media Fars quoted a senior police officer as saying that a “new phase” of the nationwide “Nazar.1” or “surveillance” program has begun.

According to the report, the Nazar program was launched in 2020. When the program was launched, the vehicle owner would be informed about the dress violation through an SMS and ‘legal’ action would be taken in case of further violations. A warning was also given.

However, after the protests in Iran, women were seen without headscarves in different areas of Tehran and were not stopped. Since September, the white and green morale police cars were rarely seen on the streets of Tehran.

It should be noted that at the beginning of December, the Prosecutor General of Iran, Mohammad Jafar Montazeri, was quoted as saying that the moral police had been abolished.

Protests have engulfed Iran after the death of Iranian Kurdish woman Mahsa Amini in police custody on September 16. Mehsa Amini was accused of allegedly violating the dress code, while Tehran called the protests ‘riots’.
