Nina Siakhali Moradi Banned From Iran Local Council For Looking Like A ‘Catwalk Model’; Naomi Campbell Beware

moradi

Nina Siakhali Moradi (27), A government councilwoman, has been banned from public office in Iran.

She received more than 10,000 votes in the election held last June, and won a council seat in the Qazvin city council, according to a report in The Times of London.

Immediately, religious conservatives protested her looks, with one official describing her as a “catwalk model.”

Moradi was pictured wearing a hijab in campaign posters; this covered her hair, but she didn’t wear a face veil. Her hands are also shown.

Her campaign slogan was “Young ideas for a young future.” She pushed for more women’s rights in Qazvin and greater youth involvement in city politics.

However, various religious groups wrote to Qazvin’s governor and called the posters “vulgar and anti-religious,” saying they breached Islamic law.

A senior official in Qazvin told local reporters, “We don’t want a catwalk model on the council.”

Nina Siakhali Moradi was ultimately disqualified from office for failing to observe Islamic norms.

Lawd.....some antiquated ideas....I'm sticking with it. She is wearing the hijab head covering....I suppose she can only serve is she looked like Quasimoto eh? Or would she still be branded as contrary to their religion. They are just miffed that she is pushing for more rights for women. Bastids.....

You have to put this in prospective as to were she is and the customs of the land were women are to be covered head to toe (if i am correct) So her dressing this way to them would seem provocative and nontraditional. Regardless their reason for not wanting her on the seat has more with her being a woman and pushing for the rights of women in her country and not so much about her looks. I think calling her a "catwalk model" was just an attempt to insult her intelligence.

I didn't know that the hijab was new fashioned or unacceptable

thought it was more a matter of (from a piety standpoint)

burqua is ideal but a hijab was ok

I agree they'd still have something to say or have a reason for her not to hold her seat

even if she was wearing a burqua
