LMAO Iran Bans Western Hair Styles

Iran ban on 'Western' hairstyles
By Frances Harrison
BBC News, Tehran 

Iranian police have warned barbers not to give men western hair styles or use make up on them.
The move is part of an unusually fierce crackdown on what is known locally as bad hijab, or un-Islamic clothing, that this year is also targeting men.

Hair stylists have been warned that they could lose their licenses if they do not comply.

However, police have denied a report that they have ordered barbers not to serve customers wearing ties.

Wild

Police say that as well as avoiding western hairstyles and make up, barbers should not pluck customers' eyebrows.

Some young boys in Iran sport very wild hair styles , using gel to make their long hair stand on end in a fashion not seen in other countries.

Meanwhile newspapers in Iran have quoted the police as saying that 16,000 women and 500 men have been cautioned in the last week over their improper clothing.

It is not clear if these figures are nationwide or only apply to the capital, Tehran.

Iranian television has said the crackdown on un-Islamic clothing has entered its second phase now where mobile police units will patrol Tehran to look for those who are not observing Islamic dress properly.

According to the local media, Tehran's public prosecutor has suggested women who violate dress rules should be exiled from the capital to remote areas of the country.

A member of the parliament's legal committee has said there is no legal impediment to doing this.

iraq would just get annexed by iran


That would be a great solution.  If Iran and the majority of Iraqi's are pleased with it, then why shouldn't they do it?

true,but i could care less what type of haircut an Iranian has..i just think its pointless to point out these things because obviously "us" bein westerners already think the middle-east is ass-backwards in thinking/living. let them do what they feel is right,we dont HAVE to approve.

It's not about improving. Obvously the Midde East is going to do whatever they want regardless of what Westerners think of it. But the point of TOT (which is rarely ever met these days) is to discuss various political, social, religous etc. issues. This banning definatly is showing some negative (and ignorant) attitudes towards Western countries.

People in the West seem to forget about their own bullshit... i.e. not allowing Muslim females to wear headscarves in school.

Actually, Muslims have to be in a pure state before praying, which they do 5 times a day.... that means any time they take a piss or fart or anything they gotta wash themselves before praying... while it's normal in Europe to shower once a week.

Word I remember this German broad that was here as an exchange student when i was in high school.  She stayed with one of my friend's family.  She had hairy pits and never showered.  She'd always try to come over to my house to swim and I told the homey he had to cut that short.

i feel you Teddy. I just feel more attention should be paid to diplomatic resolutions than haircuts/headwear. My first post was not meant to be negative. Im all for discussion and you make a valid point.

Wanting to see who you're teaching? We're talking about a piece of cloth that covers a girl's hair, not her face.
Muslims caused a fuss over this because whether you want to admit it or not, the French law was targeting them.
The same rules? Oh you mean the non-Muslim girls are also not allowed to cover their heads... great logic. That's like me saying a Muslim country forcing every female to wear a headscarf is okay, and that non-Muslims causing a fuss would be just an over-reaction since the rule applies to everyone.

No matter what you say, it still is a law that's taking away their basic freedom. I know America's foreign policy is shit, but I can't deny the fact that unlike much of the rest of the world (some Middle Eastern countries and certain European ones), you can practice your religion freely here... the idea of not allowing someone to wear something like a headscarf at school would be considered absurd and ridiculous here.

Thats bs. People in Holland shower at least once a day. Most people even twice a day. I dont know what kind of people youve been talking to...

It's apples and oranges homey.  I couldn't wear a hat in school either.  There's no law that forbids them from covering their head out in public, or restaurants or whatever.  There's no special forces unit assigned to patrol the streets looking for women in head scarves.

I was responding to this :

So let me reiterate:

It's apples and oranges homey.  I couldn't wear a hat in school either.  There's no law that forbids them from covering their head out in public, or restaurants or whatever.  There's no special forces unit assigned to patrol the streets looking for women in head scarves.

I know what you were responding to, and that's exactly what my reply was to.

It's a breach of religious freedom.

Not allowing you to wear a hat is different from not allowing you to wear something on your head for religious reasons...

You have to make the distinction between a Muslim country (where the government is run by people who impose laws based on Islam), and a country where the majority of people are Muslim (and as in the case of Turkey, most are secular... as you're probably aware, just this week there were hundreds of thousands of secular Turkish citizens protesting against what they see as a rise in the Islamic faction within the government). My point is that Turkey is pretty much a secular nation... there is no official religion, nor is there any state sponsored religion. Muslims can't even open up faith-based schools there. If you're asking why they did... I think the points brought up should explain why, and the explicit reason used to justify is the same as with the other nations... they don't want any clothing with religious symbolism in schools or government buildings.
