Tehran police's new target: Pet dogs

Police beef up enforcement of Islamic law ahead of summer, banning women's 'immodest' attire, presence of 'impure' pets in public sphere -

Tehran police are beefing up enforcement of Islamic law against women improperly dressed ahead of the summer, and adding a new target: pet dogs.


Police in Tehran are conducting a new crackdown on women wearing mandatory headscarves improperly or in "vulgar" dress



Typically, such women are fined or detained in police stations until relatives collect them hours later with more modest clothing.


As part of police operations in Tehran, officers also issue warnings to dog owners walking their pets outside. In Sharia-ruled Iran, dogs are considered "impure." Dozens of dogs in Tehran were round up last month and placed in quarantine.


Iran's Islamist rulers consider ownership of pet animals "un-Islamic." Authorities distinguish between pet dogs and "work dogs" used for guarding and helping in rescue missions.



Iran's parliament even introduced a bill according to which dogs cannot be taken out in public, with offenders facing fines of up to $1,000.

  • Sometimes it's pretty hard to maintain the spirit of non intervention!
    Iran is a totalitarian police state, but people have to break their chains emselves. We should only point in the right direction.

    What could be just remotely entertaining or fun?
    Ants! Yes ants!
    We have to make a law against having fun watching ants.
    The same goes for mushrooms, - we have to make a law against watching mushrooms grow. Somebody might find it funny and we don't like that.

    Then what about the act of reproduction, somebody asked.
    Well, - we can't prevent the man having fun, but damned, we can demand that the woman dislikes everything about this disgusting, but necessary act (need more sol More..

  • 39 of Iran's 290 parliamentarians trying to bush the bill out. Nothing has been approved yet.

    And let me remind you that last year US goverment tried to push a few bills to ban internet and guns.
