<p>Individuals who are considered to be dressed “inappropriately” might face up to 10 years in jail under this regulation. A three-year “trial” term for the measure has already passed. It will be a three to five year trial program if it is approved by Iran’s Guardian Council, an unelected authority under the country’s theocratic government. Legislators may then think about making these policies permanent.</p>
<p>These efforts built on earlier programs that included the placement of surveillance cameras in public areas and rigorous dress regulations enforcement.</p>
<p>Additionally, anybody found guilty of “promoting nudity” or “mocking the hijab” on social networking sites or media outlets would be fined. In addition, violating the rigorous dress code by female drivers or passengers might result in fines for car owners.</p>
<p>Added information on the “Hijab and Chastity Bill”:</p>
<p>The hijab and chastity law also targets anyone who “organize violations of the dress code” or work together “with foreign or hostile governments, media, groups, or organizations.” These people risk being imprisoned for a term of five to ten years.</p>
<p>According to the law, women are not allowed to wear “revealing or tight clothing, or clothing that shows parts of the body lower than the neck, above the ankles, or above the forearms.”</p>
<p>Men’s clothes, on the other hand, should only be “revealing clothing that exposes body parts below the chest, above the ankles, or below the shoulders.”</p>
<p>This move comes after demonstrations that broke out a year ago as a result of Mahsa Amini’s death while in police custody. She was held by the morality police for allegedly breaking hijab laws. under a Tehran hospital, Amini suddenly away under mysterious circumstances. She had been detained by Iran’s religious morality police, the Guidance Patrol, for allegedly not donning a headscarf in accordance with official guidelines.</p>
