Barbie´s verwoesten Iraanse cultuur

De Iraanse justitie heeft gisteren gewaarschuwd voor de verwoestende consequenties van Barbiepoppen en ander Westers speelgoed op sociaal en cultureel gebied. Een procureur-generaal noemde het speelgoed in een brief aan de Iraanse vice-president een gevaar dat een halt moet worden toegeroepen.

Doemdenken is ook een vak!

Barbie is trouwens een wereld op zich. Je hebt allerlei poppen in nationale kleding tot burka´s aan toe, zoals Moroccan, Fulla, Razanne.

Met zo´n mokkel kun je als kerel je nog bijna vertonen ook!

Natuurlijk, allemaal schone schijn.

Het gaat uiteindelijk alleen om het innerlijk.

Dan koop je voor je kinderen toch gewoon een boerkabarbie?

De ‘verborgen veronderstelling’ in het verhaal is dat barbie´s fungeren als rolmodel (hoe vindt je die?) en dat Iran vreest natuurlijk een mokkelland te worden. Een boerkabarbie is dan natuurlijk een goeie zet.

Of dat echter bevorderlijk is voor leuke fotoalbums is denk ik een ander punt.

Zijn jullie niet in de war met Afghanistan?

TEHRAN — Tehran’s police chief, who was responsible for a crackdown on immodestly dressed women for the past year, has been arrested, a spokesman for the judiciary confirmed Tuesday.

At a news conference, the spokesman, Alireza Jamshidi, would not give the reason for the arrest, the semiofficial Fars news agency reported.

Web sites and local newspapers reported last month that the chief, Gen. Reza Zarei, had been arrested after being caught in a police raid at an underground brothel with six naked prostitutes.

The announcement on Tuesday was the first official confirmation of the arrest.

The chief led a crackdown that started a year ago to increase enforcement of Islamic regulations. Thousands of young women were detained for violating the Islamic dress code, usually for wearing head scarves that showed too much hair, coats that were tight enough to reveal the figure or pants that were too short. Prostitution is illegal in Iran and can be punished severely.

Dûhûh? Een Iraans meisje in Afghaanse klederdracht?

de keurigheidspolitie waarschuwt een onzedelijk geklede vrouw voor de laatste keer.

Er is ook weinig veranderd de laatste 25 jaar daar, qua klederdracht dan.

TEHRAN, May 3 — Only days after Iran’s annual crackdown on immodest dress began in mid-April, with teams of police officers stopping women in major squares and subway stations to warn them about their attire, the security authorities came under fire.
Many women who were stopped on the street and told to dress properly reacted angrily. A parliamentary commission complained about the campaign to the chief of police, and the head of Iran’s judiciary warned that a too repressive policy could bring a backlash. Even an adviser to the president urged caution, saying the police “should not go to the extreme,??? according to the daily Etemad-e-Melli.

The Tehran chief of police, Ismail Ahmadi Moghaddam, said during the drive that the security forces would single out women who wore only small head scarves or short tight coats and short pants. He also said the police were turning their attention to men in the second phase of its campaign, which began Saturday. He insisted that the authorities would avoid force — and arrests — and would only talk to violators to urge them to dress appropriately. Still, he said 150 women a day had been taken to detention centers as the crackdown began.

At a parliamentary hearing of the Commission for National Security that was convened to hear complaints, “Some of the members of Parliament complained that the security force should not put itself in a position to deal with such issues,??? said Dariush Ghanbari, a member of the commission.

When one woman, Nazanin, 28, was stopped last month in Vanak Square, she thought she had dressed more modestly than usual, she said. But she was told that her coat was tight and showed the shape of her body. “I just joked with them and tried to stay calm, but they told me to sit so that they could see how far my pants would pull up in a sitting position,??? said Nazanin, a reporter. She was told by the police officers that they wanted to help her look modest so men would not look at her and cause her inconvenience, she said. She received a warning about her large sunglasses, her coat, her eyeliner and her socks, which the police officers said should be longer. She was allowed to go after she signed a letter, which included her name and address, saying she would not appear in public like that again. The police have said the letters will be used against violators in court if they defy the rules a second time.

Another woman, Niloofar, 28, who responded angrily to the police when she was told to fix her head scarf because too much of her hair was showing, said she was kept in a bus for five hours.

Somayeh, 31, who was crying after she was stopped at the Mirdamad subway station, said, “They want to intimidate us.??? She was asked to call home and get her national ID number, the equivalent of a Social Security number, for the letter she had to sign, promising not to wear makeup in public again.

The women who were interviewed refused to give their full names because they feared they could be identified by the police.

Women have been required by law since the 1979 Islamic revolution to cover their hair and wear long, loose clothing. The ideal dress is considered to be the chador, a black head-to-toe garment. In the early days of the revolution, women were flogged, jailed and fined for what was considered immodest dress. But many women defy the law and the government has been engaged in a constant battle over how they should look. At least three state-sponsored fashion shows were held in the past year to encourage women to wear more “Islamic??? clothes.
This year, the publicity campaign has been especially large and loud, with the security authorities insisting that people are happy with the restrictions. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has backed the campaign, saying, “Those who have indecent appearances are sent by the enemy.??? But other sectors of the government and the news media are urging caution.

The head of the judiciary, Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi, has warned provincial governors about possible dangers of the crackdown. “Hauling women and young people to the police station will have no result except social harm,??? he said, according to Etemad-e-Melli. And Mehdi Kalhor, Mr. Ahmadinejad’s press adviser, warned the police chief in a letter that his force “should not go to the extreme,??? the newspaper reported.

The conservative daily Kayhan also warned that “women’s immodest dress is not the only vice.???
“The way the vices are dealt with should be in a way so that people — especially the youth — believe that the authorities really want to eradicate them,??? Kayhan wrote, saying that poverty, bribery and injustice were more important problems.

Still, dissent is unwelcome. A court in Tehran sentenced six prominent protesters in April to jail terms of two to three years. The six women are part of a campaign that is trying to collect a million signatures for a petition that calls on the authorities to give women equal rights with men.

And the second phase of the crackdown began Saturday as planned. Not only women were scrutinized. The police also arrested men who wore wild hairstyles and T-shirts that were considered un-Islamic. The student news agency ISNA quoted a police statement on Sunday as saying, “In an official order to barbershops, they have been warned to avoid using Western hairstyles and doing men’s eyebrows.???

mbt bovenstaande foto, vooral dat gemanchetteerde handje baart opzien, alsmede het ongekamde kapsel van de geverbalseerde.
