Older people will remember a vastly different impression of Iran though, the Iran from before the Islamic Revolution. There are a large number of pictures and videos out there that show a radically different country from the one today (some might be from the 1960s BTW) so I’ve gathered a few of them together.

































Iran in the 1970s before the Islamic Revolution

Wow, what a different place Iran is today... just take a look at how they force their women to dress now.







It seems they have taken a step backwards ever since the Islamic Revolution


Restrictions on women were more severe in the early days of the Islamic Republic. Females who didn't cover all parts of their body, except hands and face, were subject to punishment of up to seventy lashes or sixty days imprisonment.[26] Women were encouraged to stay at home and not seek a job until the Iran-Iraq War started and women's employment was needed

If the US and Britain hadn't treated them like cannon fodder toys they wouldn't have interfered with their governments and the Persians would probably have true democracy right now. They get held back by their own corrupt government and the corrupt governments of the West. Poor people.

Once their leader decided to try to nationalize Iranian oil companies game over. International oil caretls i.e. British and USA would never let that happen. Hence the puppet government and the Islamic revolution. Iranian people are awesome and their country is beautiful.

Not defending the theocracy, but we only focus on dress codes. That is not the main thing in Iran. Things are getting better for women.




Iranian law still favors men, but women in that country are more educated and have a more visible role in life than in many other Islamic countries, such as Saudi Arabia. And things are getting better, according to the first woman to serve as a cabinet secretary in that country.





But to see that, Massoumeh Ebtekar told TODAY co-host Matt Lauer, Westerners need to get over their obsession with the hijab, the head scarf that Iranian women are required to wear by law.





“Hijab is a kind of social act,” Ebtekar said in a live interview conducted in Tehran, the Iranian capital. “I don’t think it is a big issue for women, because there are a lot of issues for women that are so important, and hijab is not a big thing.”

If the West had not supported the dictatorial Shah, perhaps the revolution would never have happened. It is easy to point fingers, but "we" need to look at "our" own roles in what happened.

I do believe someone posted the same topic and pics last year. Still good to see a look how things can change overnight. In the thread last year they showed downtown cosmopolitan cafe settings similar looking to Turkey these days. Though I understand Iran still has suburbs that resemble modern day European cities today.

MysterE, great thread and very interesting pictures, here´s another one of Iranian women protesting against the forced wearing of the hijab after the Islamic Revolution in 1979.





On a similar note there's also some pretty eyeopening images of Afghanistan on this thread by xavi1000.

Cheers.

They had democracy, we took it away because it wasn't the "right" sort of democracy. You know, the usual western puppet based one where all the money and resources gets sent abroad.

Nothing really changes!

Edit to add, it's almost on par with Afghanistan, after the west armed, trained and funded the good terrorists to oust the Russians, then imposed Sharia law and hardline Islamic governance.

Let me guess, you are Sunni...


Shia (Arabic: شيعة‎ Shīʿah), an abbreviation of Shīʻatu ʻAlī (شيعة علي, "followers of Ali"), is a branch of Islam ...
Shia Islam is based on the Quran and the message of the Islamic prophet Muhammad attested in hadith recorded by the Shia...

And interestingly enough.... IS are from the Sunni side.
Which would ofcourse explain why they and the other rebels in Syria oppose Assad who belongs to a pan-religious part of Shia islam.

Tnx for clarifying that Dr. UAE . Your words seem so familiar . i'm just thinking where have i heard this one ...

Oh yeah . ISIS

Exact same words of ISIS , Taliban and Al-qaeda . EXACT same freakin' words .

The question really is : what the hell are you gonna do abt it ? huh ? pal look around you and see hows the hate working for you . do you think you've hurt Iran ? last time i checked no single Iranian citizen had a bleeding nose due to the mess in middle-east . now take a look at yourself man ! its a mess ! you're a complete mess !

thousands up thousands of saudis have joined ISIS for ex. and they are dying on a daily basis ! and for what ? for some stupid 1st century way of thinking ?

Iran has the fastest growth in world when it comes to science . what about you ? what are you doing ? blowing yourselves up ?

go ahead . we really won't care . we're from a "shiat cult" .... whatever the hell that is .

Oopsy .

thats a burqa . this pic is from your ally saudi arabia . do you guys know what a revolution means ? Iranian people chose this regime , can you understand that ?

Iran has a parliament , it has a president and both of them are voted for by the people . you guys probably know ahmadinejad right ? he was a right winger and a hardliner . people voted for him cause he promised economic prosperity . he F-ed that up , then people switched to the left-wingers and hence "Rouhani" who is now our president . if you follow world news , you'd probably know what i'm talking about and how this change in Iran's strategy shaped the events on the world stage .

Please visit this thread , i've explained more here :

people had nothing to eat pre-1979 ! they starved to death ! this a fact that these selective pics from singers and royal family cannot ever change !
