The Iranian regime started a new phase implementing the mandatory hijab law:

“From today the police in Tehran, as in other provinces, will implement their measures against this sort of violation of the law regarding hijab,” the capital’s police chief Abbas Ali Mohammadian said on live television, according to Persian language news outlet Iran International.

“People who did not pay attention to previous police warnings will be specially warned in the city from today and legal action will be taken against them,” Mohammadian went on to say.

The crackdown is said to be based on a directive made by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei during the Eid al-Fitr prayer sermon last week, when he called for a zero tolerance policy and what he called “religious norm-breaking.” “The hijab issue, which has now become an imposed challenge, did not exist before,” Khameni said in the sermon, in which he blamed hijab refusal on “the intervention of foreigners,”

The regime passed the hijab law last year, but “the approval process is still ongoing after some objections by the Guardians Council, including questions over how the law will be enforced.” reported that police arrested the wife and daughter of Ahmadreza Abedzadeh, the former Iranian national football team goalkeeper.

The IRGC claimed the police arrested the women for “creating tension and fighting with officers.”
