Happy Holidays from Iran's lifestyle police

Hey Islamofascists of the Nazi State of Iran and elsewhere...would the women's attire in this photo be acceptable for your 7th century dress code?

Iran: Women banned from wearing boots

Tehran, 12 Dec. (AKI) - Women have been banned from wearing boots and hats on the streets of Tehran.

Police chief, General Ahmad Radan, announced the ban on Wednesday saying that boots could only be worn if they were covered by pants.

"If boots are not covered by pants that fall to the ankles, they show the female shape and that is therefore in contradiction with Islamic dress code," said Radan.

Iranian women can no longer leave home with their pants pushed inside their boots and they can no longer wear hats without a veil.

"A hat is not an adequate substitute for a veil or a hijab," he said. " If someone really wants to wear a hat, they can put it on the veil."

Feminist Rezvan Moghdaddam told Adnkronos International (AKI) that police should be concerned about drug traffickers than street fashion.

"Instead of being busy with women's hats and boots, the police would be better catching the merchants of death that kill our young people with drugs," she said from Tehran.

"Our cities are infested by delinquents and security forces are only worried about how women dress, all this is really ridiculous."

Generale Radan said decision to apply the Islamic code had come from a committee composed of the Revolutionary Guard, the judiciary, police and officials from the intelligence ministry and the ministry of culture and Islamic orientation.

Their god is so powerless, he needs watchdogs to patrol the streets for him on the lookout for delinquents who dont wear scarfs. What a waste of time.

So much for Iran's fitting into the 21st Century. Or the 19th Century, for that matter.
