London, 14 Sep - Iran’s supreme leader has issued a fatwa banning women from cycling in public because of the risk of societal corruption.

In a move branded “ridiculous”, by the Women's Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), Ali Khamenei banned women from riding bicycles in public to retain modesty.

London, 15 Aug - Despite its claims of moderation, the government of Iranian president Hassan Rouhani has been taking increasing measures to limit women’s rights for freedom in the recent years. One of the ways the Iranian government is clamping down on women’s freedom is by limiting and dictating what they can wear. Women across Iran are now forced to wear the Chador – full black cover - in order to receive various public services, reports the Women’s Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).
