Hojatoleslam Ali Beheshti, Iran Cleric, Claims He Was Beaten Up By 'Badly Veiled' Woman

Womenís rights in Iran may be in a sordid state, but that doesnít necessarily mean Iranian women canít take care of themselves.

A cleric in the northern province of Semnan claims he received the beating of his lifetime last month after advising two women passing by a mosque to cover up.

In an interview with the semi-official Mehr news agency on Monday, Hojatoleslam Ali Beheshti, a top religious figure in the city of Shahrmirzad, said he thought the women's attire defied social codes and Islamic values.
One of the women, apparently, did not appreciate his advice.
"Not only didnít she cover herself up, but she also insulted me. I asked her not to insult me anymore, but she started shouting and threatening me," the cleric said, according to Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty. "She pushed me and I fell to the ground on my back. From that point on, I donít know what happened. I was just feeling the kicks of the woman who was beating me up and insulting me."
The cleric told Iran's semi-official Mehr news agency that he was hospitalized for three days after the attack, and, a month later, still needs his wife's help to eat and take care of his personal affairs.
Iranian law has required women to wear the hijab since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

Girl powahhh!!!  :yarr

Given the bullshit a lot of those women have to deal with, I say good for her.  However, if his account is correct, and it could be, it sounds like she was just being a cunt. 

Interestinly, with the sudden popularity of ninja warrior training amongst Iranian women, we'll probably start to see a lot more of those assholes getting their asses kicked by women who don't like being told what to do.

I think cunt is putting it a bit harsh, even if his account is right. I wouldn't appreciate being told to cover up either.

It said he advised her to cover up.  Maybe he was one of those assholes that walks around with a bamboo stick to beat women with.  Maybe he was just some guy who merely suggested she cover up before somebody else took offense.  We don't really know.  For the record, I think forcing women to wear goofy-ass costumes is pretty lousy, but I don't tend to judge people for their cultural beliefs.  White Christian Americans do some pretty stupid shit, too, IMO.

The trouble is, what happened to these two women post-ass kickage? If they have been or can be identified, I wouldn't be surprised at their being put to death or something.

True on all counts

It would have been much easier for them to get away unidentified if they JUST COVERED THEMSELVES UP!

But we don't know that they did. Obviously, we don't know that they didn't, but it doesn't say either way. And he may be able to describe what they look like under covering.

That's just because you're beautiful though.

Given that they kicked his ass, I have a hard time believing that he asked nicely or was giving them a head's up about assholes that were attacking women dressed like that.

Youtube is full of videos of women freaking out over perceived slights.  If a person feels like they're at a cultural disadvantage, and women there certainly should, then it's not all that uncommon for them to see disrespect where it might not be present.
