Iranian Cleric Beaten Up After Telling Woman To Cover Up
Sep 20, 2012 11:35
Looks like some folks are sick on Iran's clerics telling them how to dress up. According to Mehr News Agency, one cleric was reportedly badly beaten by a woman who responded to his repeated requests to cover up by kicking the crap out of him.
According to Hojatoleslam Ali Beheshti, he was making his way to a mosque when he encountered what he described as a "badly covered" woman,
and proceeded to "politely" order her to correct her outfit. What happened next is to surreal to believe:
"You, cover your eyes," the woman reportedly responded. He then told her
again to cover up, at which point she decided she'd had enough.
"Not only didn't she cover herself up, but she also insulted me," the
cleric told Mehr. "I asked her not to insult me anymore, but she started
shouting and threatening me. She pushed me and I fell to the ground on
my back. From that point on, I don't know what happened. I was just
feeling the kicks of the woman who was beating me up and insulting me."
Ali Beheshti describes the smackdown as being "the worst day of my life", but despite spending three days in the hospital, he says it has not deterred him from doing his "religious duty." Easy for him to say, since he's probably unaware of what it's like to have been harassed, detained,
fined, and threatened by the morality police, security forces, and
zealots over his appearance.
The strict dress code for women has been enforced in Iran since the
Islamic Revolution of 1979, making it compulsory for female residents to
don head-scarves called 'hijabs' in public as well as drab, loose-fitting
coats that obscure their curves.

She took the opportunity to fire back, out loud, in front of a live audience, and things got real. Read more
