Iran: Western garments will be seized, police chief warns
Tehran, 18 July (AKI) - "Illegal" clothing such as above-the-knee coats or designer T-shirts will be confiscated and those who wear them will be detained until they are supplied with "decent" garments, Tehran's police chief, General Ali Reza Radan told Iran's Iskanews.Radan also described fans of heavy metal and other types of pop music as "dangerous social elements" who will no longer be tolerated. He also declared war on the popular "narghile" or hookah pipe, declaring: "Restaurants and bars where families go may no longer offer the narghile."The government of hardline president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced on Monday it was stepping up its morality campaign, which is now targeting young men as well as young women deemed to be dressed in an "unIslamic" fashion. "Reoffenders" will be detained and tried, Radan told the semi-official Iranian news agency Fars. Youths with "western" hairstyles and clothes will be arrested and released only when they give police the names of their hairdressers and will be allowed to leave police stations when they have donned "decent" attire," Radan said.Starting next week, "all the patrols that will carry out the campaign to restore public morality will be equipped with portable computers to check if the young men and women detained for their inadequate attire and western attitudes are previous offenders," Radan stated.A spokesman for Iran's central judicial authority, Ali Reza Jamshidi, announced last week the imminent execution of 20 people in Tehran "who have been found guility of illicit sexual relations and acts aganst the faith." At least six young men arrested for homosexual relations were reported to be among them.Jamshidi also announced the arrest of 18 activists at Tehran's prestigious Amir Kabir university - where students have been staging demonstrations in recent weeks against the government's Islamic moralisation campaign.This year's Islamic moralisation campaign - launched in late April - has also targeted satellite dish owners and alcohol consumption, boutiques selling western food, western music, and dog-walking. Dogs are banned from public places, as they are considered impure.
