Top Iranian Cleric: "Women Who Do Not Wear Hijab Should Die"

 

Wednesday, December 19, 2007

 

In April, top Iranian cleric Gholam-Reza Hassani compared unveiled women to buses-- "Anyone can ride them."
Now, he wants them dead.

The Iranian regime continues their crackdown on women.

A top Iranian cleric says unveiled women should die.
ADN Kronos reported:

 

A top Muslim cleric in Iran, Hojatolislam Gholam Reza Hassani said on Wednesday that women in Iran who do not wear the hijab or Muslim headscarf, should die.

"Women who do not respect the hijab and their husbands deserve to die," said Hassani, who leads Friday prayers in the city of Urumieh, in Iranian Azerbaijan.

"I do not understand how these women who do not respect the hijab, 28 years after the birth of the Islamic Republic, are still alive," he said.

"These women and their husbands and their fathers must die," said Hassani, who is the representative of the Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in eastern Azerbaijan.

Hassani's statements came after two Kurdish feminists in Iran were accused of being members of an armed rebel group and of carrying out subversive activities threatening the security of the state.

It is believed that his statements and the arrests could spark a fresh crackdown on women who do not respect the Islamic dress code in Iran.

Hojatolislam Hassani does not just have a beef against women.
In 2002 he led a campaign against dogs.
The BBC reported:

"I demand the judiciary arrest all dogs with long, medium or short legs - together with their long-legged owners," Hojatolislam Hassani is quoted as saying in the reformist Etemad newspaper.

"Otherwise I'll do it myself," said the outspoken cleric, who leads Friday prayers in the north-western city of Urumiyeh.

Remember- the burka is a choice.
The burka is your friend.
