VIDEO: Iranian Women protesting against hijab to be charged with inciting prostitution, jailed for up to ten years

The idea behind the “inciting prostitution” charge is that it is women’s responsibility to prevent men from being tempted. If she takes off her hijab, she is inviting them to be tempted. And that’s tantamount to prostitution, in the Sharia-wracked minds of Khamenei and Rouhani.

“Women protesting against wearing the hijab in Iran will be charged with inciting PROSTITUTION and jailed for up to ten years as regime cracks down on growing dissent,” by Sara Malm, Mailonline, February 27, 2018:

Iranian women protesting the compulsory headscarf by taking off their hijab in public could be facing up to a decade in jail for ‘inciting prostitution’, police has warned.

Authorities in Iran are desperately trying to stem the growing protests across the country against the dress code enforced on women since the Islamic revolution of 1979.

More than 35 women have been arrested in the capital Tehran alone in the past two months, with several reportedly subjected to torture while in custody.

At least two of the arrested protesters, Narges Hosseini and Shaparak Shajarizadeh, are being charged with ‘inciting corruption and prostitution’, Amnesty International reports.

Ms Shajarizadeh was arrested last Wednesday and has reportedly been subjected to beatings in prison.

Activists claim she was also ‘injected with an unknown substance by the prison authorities’ upon her arrest.

Ms Hosseini was arrested just over a month ago and has since been in custody in unknown conditions.

If they are found guilty of inciting corruption and prostitution, they could face up to ten years in prison….

‘Rather than threatening women with jail terms for claiming their human rights, the authorities should immediately abolish the discriminatory, abusive and degrading laws and practices of compulsory veiling.’

The recent wave of defiance started with Vida Movahed, a 31-year-old mother-of-one whose protest and subsequent arrest on December 27 became headline news all over the world.

A video showing her calmly waving her white hijab tied to a stick above the crowds in the Iranian capital, went viral on social media.

Ms Movahed, who became known as The Girl In Enghelab Street, was released over the weekend, after spending a month in custody with her 20-month-daughter….

As Iranian women cast off hijab as symbol of oppression, UK Foreign Office celebrates World Hijab Day

“I can’t see the Foreign Office promoting Christianity or the handing out of crosses.”

Indeed. In the shattered, staggering, dhimmi UK, only Islam gets this fawning treatment. And it’s particularly despicable this year, for while non-Muslim women in the UK Foreign Office were donning hijabs in solidarity with hijabbed Muslimas, reinforcing the false claim that hijab-wearing women are persecuted and harassed in Britain and the West, Iranian women are risking years in prison for taking off their hijabs. The UK Foreign Office should be standing in solidarity with them and calling for freedom and the rights of women, but it will not do so — that would be “Islamophobic.”

“Foreign Office staff invited to wear hijab for the day: Civil service accused of promoting ‘oppression of women’ after giving out free headscarves,” by Ian Drury, Daily Mail, February 7, 2018:

Mandarins at the Foreign Office invited staff to wear Islamic headscarves for the day, claiming they symbolised ‘liberation, respect and security’.

The department was accused of backing the ‘institutional oppression of women’ by giving away taxpayer-funded headscarves at a walk-in event to mark World Hijab Day.

The event was held as women in ultra-conservative Iran burned their headscarves in protest at being forced to wear them or face arrest and prison.

Many Muslim women across the world have shunned the hijab – which covers the hair and neck but not the face – as an antiquated, oppressive, religious tool.

The event was last Thursday, just days before Britain marked the 100th anniversary of women being given the vote….

Anti-hijab activist Masih Alinejad told Reuters: ‘We are fighting against the most visible symbol of oppression. These women are saying, “It is enough – it is the 21st century and we want to be our true selves.”’

Tory MP Andrew Bridgen said: ‘I’d like to know whose bright idea this was. It is ridiculous, a complete waste of taxpayers’ money and not the business of a Government department.

‘I can’t see the Foreign Office promoting Christianity or the handing out of crosses.’

An internal email to Foreign Office staff said the event was taking place on February 1 between midday and 2pm inside the department’s headquarters at Whitehall.

It read: ‘Would you like to try on a hijab or learn why Muslim women wear the headscarf? Come along to our walk-in event. Free scarves for all those that choose to wear it for the day or part of the day.

‘Muslim women, along with followers of many other religions, choose to wear the hijab. Many find liberation, respect and security through wearing it. #StrongInHijab. Join us for #WorldHijabDay.’ Posters for the event, featuring Foreign Office branding, were circulated. World Hijab Day, an annual event, was also marked in the Scottish Parliament…

Nike launches an oppressive symbol of Sharia law — the Hijab

The Independent in the United Kingdom first reported:

Nike is launching a high-performance hijab for Muslim athletes.

http://floridafamily.org/images/Nikehijab.jpgThe brand aims to inspire women and girls who face barriers in sport.

The hijab, which lacks specific derivation from the Qur’an, is a symbol of oppression that is pushed by strict adherents of Sharia law.  Sharia law is antithetical to the rights afforded under the United States Constitution.   There is little debate online as to whether the Qu’ran mandates hijabs because it does not.  Wearing a hijab is clearly driven by culture and custom and is not a religious requirement.  However, Islamists who want to Islamize America instead of assimilate into American culture are pushing these Sharia style customs.

Wearing the Hijab in Solidarity Perpetuates Oppression is the title of a column published on January 14, 2016 by The New York Times.  The column was written by two Muslim women Asra Q. Nomani and Hala Arafa.  The column states in part:  In the eight times the word hijab, or a derivative, appears in the Koran, it means a “barrier” or “curtain,” with spiritual, not sartorial, meaning. Today, well-intentioned women are wearing headscarves in interfaith “solidarity.” But, to us, they stand on the wrong side of a lethal war of ideas that sexually objectifies women as vessels for honor and temptation, absolving men of personal responsibility.   This purity culture covers, segregates, subordinates, silences, jails and kills women and girls around the world

“The Qur’an does not Mandate Hijab” writes Ibrahim B. Syed, Ph. D. President Islamic Research Foundation International, Inc.   “… as long as the dresses are not revealing or too tight, cultural variations can add tremendous diversity in the fulfillment of this guideline.  Hijab, a terminology that is NOT to be found in the Qur’an or Hadith in the context of dress code.”  Ibrahim Syed refers to Dr. Khaled Abou El Fadl’s studies of the Qur’an and Islamic law.  Dr. Khaled Abou El Fadl is an accomplished Islamic jurist and scholar, and a Professor of Law at the UCLA’s School of Law.  He previously taught Islamic law at the University of Texas, Yale Law School and Princeton University.   A high-ranking Shaykh, Dr. Abou El Fadl also received formal training in Islamic jurisprudence in Egypt and Kuwait.  Ibrahim Syed writes “Abou El Fadl argues that in contemporary Muslim societies people tend to become authoritative by imposing a single viewpoint to the total exclusion of others. Shariah (Islamic law) is then invoked to quash debate by people who are themselves not adequately qualified to do so.” 

Pew Research found that only forty three percent (43%) of American Muslim women wear hijabs.  The majority of American Muslim women do NOT wear hijabs.    Rasmieyh Abdelnabi, 27, grew up attending an Islamic school in Bridgeview, Ill., a tiny Arab enclave on Chicago’s southwest side. It’s a place where most Muslim women wear the hijab.  Abdelnabi explains why she stopped wearing the hijab.  She says that Islam teaches modesty — but wearing the hijab is taking it a step too far.  “I’ve done my research, and I don’t feel its foundation is from Islam,” she says. “I think it comes from Arab culture.” 

Clearly, Hijabs are an oppressive symbol of Sharia law.
