Top Iranian cleric calls for violence to counter ‘improper veiling’

In a meeting with theologian students, Ayatollah Seyed Ahmad Khatami stressed that the issue of the Hijab has turned into a problem and cultural calamity in today’s society and said, “We cannot say anymore that there is a lack of work being done in the country on cultural issues especially regarding the Hijab and it should be said that there is actually nothing being done in the society to solve these kinds of problems”.

“None of the officials are thinking about finding a solution for this problem and it seems that improper veiling cannot be stopped in the country with cultural work and I think that pure blood has to be spilled for this problem to be uprooted…”, Khatami, who is a member of the Expediency Council added.

He also stressed in the end of his meeting that one can no longer solve this issue with the gentle approach and so-called cultural activities. (AsreIranstate-run website – Apr. 24, 2011)
