WANA ( Apr 15) – The plan to deal with women who remove the hijab has started today as police intend to use advanced technology, equipment, and cameras in this capacity.
Radan, Chief of Iran’s Police, said yesterday that “the cameras that monitor this violation do not have any errors, but if a person objects to the warning text message sent to her, this objection will be accepted for the first time.”

The number of police present in Tehran streets is slightly higher than in previous days.
WANA reporters describe they did not witness any direct warning from police to unveiled women, contrary to the former “morality police” method. In the new plan, policemen will not directly warn or arrest women who don’t obey the Islamic hijab in the streets.
Based on the same reports, the number of women who observed the Islamic hijab seems to have increased compared to previous days. Of course, there continue to be young girls and middle-aged women who appear throughout the city without an Islamic veil.
