Il peggio del peggio
post pubblicato in Diario, il 19 maggio 2006


A new dress-code law passed in Iran this past week mandates the government to make sure that religious minorities, Christians, Jews and Zoroastrians, will have to adopt distinct colour schemes to make them identifiable in public, the Canadian National Post reported on Friday.
Jews, under the new law, will have to wear a yellow band on their exterior in public, while Christians will be required to don red ones.
Furthermore, according to the law, the Iranian government has envisioned that all Iranians wear "standard Islamic garments" designed to remove ethnic and class distinctions.
The purpose for the law was to prevent Muslims from becoming najis "unclean" by accidentally shaking the hands of non-Muslims in public.
The new law was drafted during the presidency of Muhammad Khatami in 2004, but was blocked. That blockage, however, has been removed under pressure from current President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
According to Ahmadinejad, reported the National Post, the new Islamic uniforms will establish "visual equality" for Iranians as they prepare for the return of the Hidden Imam.
The final shape of the uniforms is yet to be established but there is consensus on a number of points.
Some Islamic experts want a type of long jacket known as "sardari" and used in Iran for centuries. Others propose only a waistcoat.

LA PROPOSTA E': ORGANIZZARE IMMEDIATAMENTE UNA MANIFESTAZIONE NAZIONALE, INDOSSANDO FASCE DI TUTTI I COLORI. Lo slogan, ovviamente, sarà: Siamo tutti minoranze di qualcun altro.
