Iran bans women from going to watch sports match
Iran’s police chief says his forces have acted based on their natural duty in banning the entrance of women into sports stadiums or cancelling various music concerts.
“The commander of the police said in a trip to Qom: If we prevent the presence of women in concerts and sports stadiums, we are acting based on our natural and sharia duty,” the state-run Entekhab website wrote.
“We act based on the law in this regard and some people may complain, but the police is a law enforcement body,” he said on the issue of women entering sports stadiums.
