Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, is reported to have proposed a new fatwa. Surprisingly, this fact will ask the female cartoon character, to wear a head covering, aka a hijab.
Al-Arabiya which cites the news agency Tasnim News Agency citing IranWire reveal this. Khamenei explained this when asked by a channel on Telegram, whether his party was confirming the role of the hijab in cartoon characters.
“Although wearing the headscarf in such a hypothetical situation is not necessary, the hijab in animation is needed because of the consequences of not wearing the headscarf,” Khamenei was quoted as saying Monday (22/2/2021).
Wearing a headscarf and covering all parts of the body has become mandatory for women in Iran since the Islamic Republic was founded in 1979. Women who leave part of their hair uncovered in public are often targets of the morality police, known as the Gasht-e Ershad.
IranWire writing, it remains to be seen how this fatwa will affect the films and animated series shown in the country. The media also wrote that some clerics and religious groups in Iran oppose screening foreign films and series in which women appear without the hijab.
They believe they encourage women to remove their head covering. However, not all religious leaders believe that the hijab is obligatory on the screen.
However, there has been no official comment from the Iranian government on this matter.
