According to the Shia cleric, women who do not respect conservative Islamic dress rules are "sources of all that is bad in society."
"Respecting the chador (a long, black cloak that covers the arms and legs and is usually worn with a hijab) is the law of the state and the authorities must severely punish anyone who does not respect this law, in the same way that they punish thieves and murderers," said Elmadhoda.
He is also a member of the Council of Experts - a powerful body of 86 senior clerics which elects, supervises and can dismiss the country's supreme leader.
"A women who does not wear the entire veil is like a fire which burns anyone who comes into contact with her," said Elmalhoda.
"Our youth, even those who are educated by families who believe and respect the words of the Prophet, when they come into contact with this fire [the women who are not properly veiled] they burn and become ash," he said.
Islamic belief is that men have no capacity to control themselves, and have no responsibility to do so; the burden is all on women to protect men from temptation by hiding inside movable tents.To go to source click here
