The morality police in Iran is stirring up trouble

morality 2

Iran’s newly launched 7,000-strong undercover morality police is causing a big stir in Iran and outside of Iran. Their job is mostly centered on “noise pollution” (drivers playing loud music in their cars) and “modesty laws” (women not wearing hijabs or veils). It seems that this task-force is actually police officers who continue to be on duty after changing from their police uniforms although it’s not certain if they are getting paid to do so or if this is voluntary work. The problem with these undercover policemen is that they are creating fear amongst Iranian citizens who are now fearing that everyone can be an undercover cop. Rouhani has stood against the morality police while the minister of interior and the chief of police continue to support it.
