Acid attacks on young women; a precursor to enforcement of “Enjoining Good, Proscribing Vice” Law


Defenders for Human Rights Centre Publishes Report on Iran’s Human Rights Situation in Month of Mehr 1393:


Acid attacks on young women; a precursor to enforcement of “Enjoining Good, Proscribing Vice” Law

 In continuation of its monthly reports, the Defenders of Human Rights Center (DHRC), has reviewed the situation of human rights in Iran during the month of Mehr 1393 [Iranian month from 23 September to 22 October 2014].
Defenders of Human Rights Center (DHRC) , which is presided over by Shirin Ebadi, has referred to acid attacks in Esfahan and has considered it as the most violent actions against women and girls in recent weeks.
This people-instituted organization also has referred to the approval of a general law for “Enjoining Good, Proscribing Vice” in the Iranian Parliament [Majlis] and has considered the possibility that if this law receives final approval, it could be used as a pretext for extremist groups to interfere in the private lives of the people with many different justifications such as Enjoining Good, Proscribing Vice.
The Defenders of Human Rights Center (DHRC) has concluded that the daily verbal attacks of the some senior clergymen on the civil rights of the citizens, and especially women’s human rights, and making the principle of “Enjoining Good, Proscribing Vice” into a law – while the principle has been confined merely to confronting improper Hijab [the Islamic dress code for women] - could be perceived as a sign of approval and encouragement for the individuals who attacked girls with acid in Esfahan.
