The planned reform of the incumbent hardliners does not mean any major changes or even a fundamental relaxation of the Islamic dress code.

According to information from the newspaper, the reform provides that women who violate the headscarf obligation should first be summoned. If they have not yet received a police entry, the accused can avoid punishment if they assure in writing that the offense will not be repeated. However, if there are already entries or if women refuse to sign, various penalties are threatened: According to the newspaper reports, the reform includes social hours, re-education courses, bans on leaving the country, employment restrictions and fines.
