Stop Fundamentalism – Iranian women are now officially banned from having ice cream on a cone in some public and recreational areas in Tehran, says INA news agency.
By an official order sent to all ice cream outlets located in Tehran’s Tajrish area and through Tochal road, these shop owners are no longer allowed to sell ice cream on a cone to young women and girls.
Tochal and Tajrish are two popular hangout places in Tehran for families and the young generation Iranians. They tend to receive a considerable crowd especially during weekends.
Iranian theocrats have particular sensitivity about places where the youth gather and hangout as the crowed usually ignores Islamic codes and guidelines.
