Islamic religious policesEdit
- Iran police step up crackdown on unIslamic dress is a good link as Iran has gotten into a fierce competition with Saudi Arabia over the religious police. Khamenei has openly and proudly shown support for it (Iran leader urges police to keep up social vice crackdown).
The fact that Khamenei takes credit/responsibility is more honorable than what others do; namely, Nayef, Abdullah bin Abdel-Aziz, and other leaders who implement a policy and then hide silently behind a curtain.
- Like many Iranians, I have had direct experience with the religious police. I suffered from it and I know what it means. The issue has been covered in wikipedia and wikiquote and you may want to add your links there. Wikiquote/Iran is the main page of Iran in wikiquote. These issues are notable enough to be covered here at this extent. Iran is a country with several thousands years of documented history. There are millions of quotes about Iran out there. --SouthIran 19:16, 18 November 2007 (UTC)
