Tehran’s Morality Police have become more active in confronting citizens for violating codes of appropriate dress.

ISNA reports that a larger number of Morality Police personnel have been seen across the city, especially in the recreation centres such as Farahzad, Darband, Darekeh, Lavasan and Tochal.

ISNA reports that on the evening of Thursday August 29, a large number of police officers arrived at Milad Tower to monitor concertgoers and arrested a number of attendees for dress code violations.

At the concert by Salar Aghili, a popular singer of classical Iranian music, morality police prevented several women from attending on the grounds that they were not properly covered.
