Iran parliament bill on mal-veiling, satellite dishes
Iran parliament is assessing a bill that if it is passed would slap a fine up to 10 million Rials ($325) on the mullahs’ self-made "mal-veiling" and jail term for those who possess satellite dishes. So far 36 MPs have co-sponsored the bill which requires the so called "Hijab police" to stop ’mal-veiled’ women on the streets and force them to take ’Islamic dress code’ classes. These women are also fined up to 10 million Rials.
A second bill under evaluation is about women who uncover their hair in the privacy of their own cars and can be seen by public. Those cars are stopped and women passengers are also fined.
