Tehran, Iran, Oct. 10 – A Majlis (Parliament) deputy from the central city of Isfahan told reporters that there was an urgent need to act against “corruption and mal-veiling” by women in society, state media reported on Monday.

“In recent years we have seen a great number of violations [of the dress code”>. How longer do we have to witness such behaviour?”, Hojjatoleslam Mohammad-Taghi Rahbar said.

“In recent years much of the Islamic customs in offices, hospitals, organizations, universities, and air schools have not been adhered to”, the mid-ranking cleric added.

Rahbar said authorities should immediately deal with violators of the dress-code starting in the holy Muslim month of Ramadan which began last Tuesday.
