A court in Mashhad on Thursday sentenced two young sisters to lashes, suspended jail terms and fine for not adhering to proper Islamic dress code. Vice squads had arrested the two as a part of a nationwide enforcement campaign. The arrests, jailing and lashes has had a reverse effect, and women no longer care what the government might do, Mashhad-based journalist Ahmad-Reza Shiri tells Radio Farda’s broadcaster Farin Asemi. The police have turned their focus on unmarried couples, he adds.
