Iran promotes Islamic haircuts


www.cnn.com

"I don't think these young men will stop wearing these hairstyles, even though in my opinion they are actually pretty strange," he said.

He prefers his own hair on the short side.

To the outside world, the crackdown on cuts may represent further restrictions by an already restrictive regime.

In my opinion, this is complete propaganda. When I started reading the article I assumed that men HAD to wear this kind of haircut but upon further reading I see that it is just a recommendation.

Why is this a top story on CNN.com? I believe there are more important things going on in the world. I have read some posts on people thinking that we are gonna go to war with Iran soon. Could this be the media trying to get us thinking of IRAN?

It's a big deal because it's big brother.

That's it.

Do not point out the irrelevance, but rather the hypocrisy of not reporting the same acts in the west.

Doesn't seem nearly as tough as the reaction I got from my employer and a lot of "adults" when I tried to grow my hair long back in the late 60's.

Back then it was long hair = no job. Long hair meant you would get hassled at the border. It meant you would get hassled by the cops.

This stuff in Iran seems mild by comparison.

I don't know why people don't understand that these places are Muslim countries, and the people expect the government to uphold the Muslim laws. This isn't the case of a tyrannical government, but a case of a strict culture.

There is a lot of hypocrisy that goes on, but it is their own old school muslim people that call for their laws/rules.


Beyond the muslim laws, the government gives the Iranian people more freedom then we get from our government. They don't live in a police state I am sure.
