This is what an Islamic nation will do to you if you don’t follow their dress codes. Doesn’t sound like something I ever want to be a part of.
A 14-year-old girl was beaten and detained by Iran’s ‘morality police’ for wearing ripped jeans.
The girl, who has not been named, was celebrating her birthday with friends when they were hauled into a police van in the city of Shiraz, in south-west Iran.
Male officers forced the girls into the vehicle having threatened them with pepper spray.
Once inside, female officers attacked them and pulled their hair.
The girls were only set free after signing written pledges saying they would not wear the ripped trousers again and follow the country’s strict dress code.
Recalling the incident, the teenage girl told the Independent: ‘There were two women and two men in a huge van and they pushed us into it with the force of their beatings.
‘Their objection was to the ripped jeans that we were wearing. There were really no other issues concerning my friends and I.’
The girl’s mother told the website: ‘It was unbelievable. When I entered the room, they were saying that these girls are not children any more and should wear proper clothes.
