Girls beat up Iran cleric over dress code

Iranian women can be subjected to harsh punishment for small infractions of the country's Islamic dress code.


Tehran, Iran (CNN) -- They may be a far cry from their Western counterparts fighting for the acceptance to breast-feed -- or go topless -- in public, but two girls clobbered a cleric recently in a small town in Iran when he admonished one of them to cover herself more completely.

The cleric said he asked "politely," but the girl's angry reaction and some pugilistic double-teaming with her friend landed the holy man in the hospital, according to an account Monday in the semiofficial Mehr News Agency.

Hojatoleslam Ali Beheshti said he encountered the girls on his way to the mosque in the village of Shahmirzad for noon prayers in late August.

He told one of the girls to cover up, the report said. "She responded by telling me to cover my eyes, which was very insulting to me," Beheshti said. So he asked her a second time to cover up and also to put a lid on what he felt was verbal abuse.

She hit the man of the cloth, and he hit the ground.

"I don't remember what happened after that," he said. "I just felt her kicks and heard her insults."
Beheshti, who emerged from the infirmary three days later, said he did not file a complaint against the girls.

But he doesn't mind the local prosecutor's investigation into the matter either "as long as the case helps the cause of Islamic hijab."

The girls may have put the "jab" into "hijab," but fighting with morality police or private individuals telling women to cover up is rare in small towns. It's more common in larger cities, where women are more likely to take a stand.

Good, ignorant prick. Why should women have to fully clothe their entire bodies. How devastating to ones self-esteem. Glad people are standing up to this.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

They actually have changed a long time ago. If you go to Iran, almost all the girls don't have hijab indoors and don't have any hair coverings and some even show cleavage with a V-neck shirt. Outdoors, girls don't even cover their hair completely and wear really tight clothing. If hijab gets abolished in Iran, I bet the Iranian girls will all go topless in public places (beaches) similar to some parts of Europe.

So what other way should these girls have gone around asserting their right to dress how they want?

By continuing to dress how they want. "I don't like what you're saying, so I'm going to beat you" is the wrong mentality to have, even when you're in the right.

Women dont wear coverings indoors in the arab world either. They are not required when in the company of "relatives". Its nothing to do with any "change", its always been that way.

It is not my intent to get in circular arguments with anybody. The reason i have avoided saying anything specific is because i know you or someone else will attempt to find an alternate explanation to my points which i intern will have to defend. I see no point in getting involved with the circular argument that is already well under way in this thread. I simply intended to voice my opinion on the subject. In the end either you accept the possibility of corruption and conspiracy or you don't.

Also i find your comments to be very childish. Does taking what i say out of context, paraphrasing and misquoting it make you feel good about yourself? Grow up.

Logic at its finest.
