Iran: Government Approves Islamic Haircuts for Men

TEHRAN – The culture ministry has outlined a number of approved “Islamic” haircuts for men in a journal, AFP reported on July 5.  “The proposed styles are inspired by Iranians’ complexion, culture and religion, and Islamic law,” said Jaleh Khodayar, who is in charge of a “Modesty and Veil Festival” later this month where they are to be promoted.  Clerics have called for firmer action against un-Islamic dressers and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad came under fire last month for expressing opposition to a tough police crackdown on immodest attire.
