Tehran, 28 January (AKI) – Iran’s most senior Shia clerics including the nation’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, have decreed that women they will be punished under Islamic law if they don’t wear the veil.
“The veil remains obligatory for all Iranian women and the Islamic Republic has the right to imposed this norm across the whole country,” read the edict or fatwa, cited by the Digarban website.
A protest group has been criticised for a legal application to stop a £17.5 million mosque being built in Cambridge, in which they claimed it could be “a front for terrorism”.
Stephen Gash, of Stop Islamisation Of Europe (SOIE), and Sareeta Webra, founder of Sikhs Against Sharia (SAS), made an application for a Cambridge County Court injunction to prevent the mosque in Mill Road being built.
The application calls for a “court injunction to be served against the Muslim Academic Trust for construction of a mega-mosque”.
