Iran:Disrespect to the Society

Mohammad Ali Abtahi, reformist politician, reminds us that these days ladies are inspected in many streets of Tehran. The ladies who are not wearing proper veil (hejab) are arrested… the ladies who are traced in the streets these days are mostly born after revolution and they have all been grown up in this period. We have spent a lot of money and facilities for the religious centers, what have they done to make relationship with this generation and convince them observe Islamic rules? Spending so much money out of public treasury and not being able to reach this goal is not a great sin which should be investigated? Fighting this by police and force is the easiest and at the same time most problematic way.
