Top cleric compares ‘improperly veiled’ women to animals

The temporary head of Friday’s Prayers in Tehran said that the philosophy of the hijab [modest covering for women or the veil] is not a personal matter and is considered a social matter.

“Improper veiling or a lack of the veil is a violation of the rights of the people and the holy system of the Islamic Republic cannot sit silently in the face of the violation of people’s rights”, he said…

Ayatollah Seyed Ahmad Khatami said, “Chastity is one of the human characteristics of a human being. In the world of animals, there is no such thing as the hijab. Those who invade its barriers and disregard it have in reality lost their [human nature] and are no different from animals”. (Mehr state-run News Agency – Jul. 6, 2011)

who is the real animal?
