In Iran, they can block the bank accounts of women who do not wear the hijab.

The Iranian authorities may begin to block the bank accounts of Iranian women who do not wear the hijab, Donya-ye Eqtesad reports, citing a member of the culture committee of the Iranian Parliament, Hossein Jalali.

“Changing the approach to the invitation to observe the hijab means the possibility of notifying non-hijab wearers in the form of a remark sent by SMS that “you did not observe the wearing of the hijab, try to respect the law.” After the remark comes the warning stage, then – the third stage, at which it is possible to block the bank account of a person who does not wear a hijab,” the agency reports Jalali’s words.

In addition, Jalali pointed to a direct link between the increase in unrest in the country and the increase in the number of hooligans and women not wearing the hijab. Thus, according to a member of the committee on culture, with the cessation of unrest, indicators for two other factors also decrease.

According to Jalali, in a couple of weeks the riots will end, and “scarves will again cover the heads of Iranian women.
