BILLINGSGATE POST: Ali Khamenei, Supreme Leader of Iran, bowing to increasing pressure from the youth movement in Tehran, issued a double reverse Fatwa which did an end-around the contentious edict outlawing the wearing of Saran Wrap burqas.
This past April, President Hassan Rohani criticized the morality police’s use of violence against a woman failing to observe the compulsory dress code. The morality police had to fire warning shots after a crowd of dissidents objected to the arrest of a young woman wearing a revealing Saran Wrap burqa.
“Promoting virtue will not work through violence.” Rohani said in a speech aired on state TV.
