Islamic dress and notions of chastity will be taught to toddlers in Iran, as part of a move by the country.

Islamic dress and teaching of chastity will be lectured to toddlers in Iran, as part of a move by the country to infuse Islamic teachings into the younger generation, a report on Wednesday, Mar 27, revealed.

The governor of Tehran, Morteza Tamadon, has recently stressed the importance of “popularizing” chastity and hijab among Iranians, advising that kindergarteners be taught, “before reaching those in higher education,” the Guardian reported. “We cannot expect to see hijab and chastity exist in society without proper cultural work,” he said. “Our goal in the social transformation plan devised by the government is institutionalizing chastity and hijab as a natural [demand] in society,” he said.

As for a program targeting toddlers, the welfare office of the Iranian city of Qom is reportedly “training 400 experts on hijab and chastity who will be sent to kindergartens across the city,” according to the Guardian.

During the spring and summer months, Iran’s morality police scour the country’s streets in search for inappropriately dressed women.

According to Iranian police Chief Ismael Ahmadi Moqadam last June, Iran now wants to intensify its struggle against women who it believes dress in an un-Islamic way. But some critics had branded the rose “gifts” to modestly dressed women as patronizing. “Just who is the Iranian government to intervene and distinguish between ‘good and bad’ women?”

The rose-giving was perhaps an attempt by the government to change tact over how to advise women to dress modestly. “Some of the moderately dressed women would complain that the regime would harshly tell ladies on the street what to wear.
