Iranian Fatwa: Women May Not Ride Bicycles

Iranian Fatwa: Women May Not Ride Bicycles, by Dr. Majid Rafizadeh.

This is only the latest in a growing multitude of activities that the Islamic Republic of Iran had declared haram (religiously forbidden). …

[Iranian women] are also prohibited from watching men’s volleyball games. A British-Iranian woman, Ghonche Ghavami, was detained and jailed in solitary confinement in Evin, notorious political prison, for attempting to watch a men’s volleyball game. …

So what can a woman do for fun or exercise if she can’t sing, listen to music, ride a bicycle, wear what she likes, etc.? According to the Islamic and sharia laws of Iran, she should focus all of her attention on being a good mother.

Hope that doesn’t catch on here. Imagine if our great grand-daughters came under the control of this culture?
