Tehran, Iran, May 14 – An official at Tehran’s governorate applauded the current nationwide crackdown on women who violate Iran’s strict Islamic dress code but said the initiative did not go far enough.

“The actions of State Security Forces (SSF) against mal-veiled women are necessary but insufficient”, said Farahnaz Qandforoush, the governorate’s advisor on women’s affairs.

The SSF should have decisively enforced the dress code over the past decade, Qandforoush told the government-run news agency Fars.

“The inaction in previous years has led women and girls to start thinking that they can appear in society in any way they want”, Qandforoush protested.

The nationwide clampdown on “poorly-dressed” women began in mid-April.
