TEHRAN (Asremrooz): Moral Police has become a major issue these days. This question has risen that is Moral Police necessary for community or not? Some sites have addressed this issue in a survey and also some of them have written comments about this military organization in the community.
Promotion of virtue and prevention of vice is one of the main issues in Islam principals and Islamic Society. Subject of Promotion of virtue and prevention of vice has expressed in holy Quran completely. It has been mentioned after pray and fast as one of the obligatory principals in the holy Quran.
In order to importance of Promotion of virtue and prevention of vice, Imam Khomeini in his first speech in Qom said “we will establish the ministry of Promotion of virtue and prevention of vice so it become one of the major issue in Iran’s constitution.
The 8th article on Iran Constitution points to Promotion of virtue and prevention of vice principal and according to that Moral police is considered as a legal act.
According to the text of 8th article in Islamic Republic of Iran Promotion of virtue and prevention of vice is considered as all’s duty including people and government. To be continued, it is pointed to Tobeh Surah, 71th verse; Allah has said faithful women and men Promote of virtue and prevente of vice”.
Therefore, since Promotion of virtue and prevention of vice is one of the Muslim’s duty and it is mentioned in the Iran’s constitution, it is considered as of the main Police’ duty. It is not true to say that Police force is at the end stage while there are not any cultural programs.
When cinema spreads incorrect culture and Bad-Hijab and there is not any control on students in universities how we expect to consider Police force as the last stage. While there is not any cultural program, the best way for controlling Bad- hijab is police.
Moral Police is considered legal not only by8th article in Iran‘s Constitution but also avoid crime because Bad- Hijab is considered crime in Iran and police have to fight against t crime. Of course it is not being denied that sometimes the moral police’s behaviors are not appropriate but there is always mistake in all organization and institution. We have to try to reduce these problems and indicate appropriate pattern for hijab for women in the community.
On the other hand, the holy prophet of Islam has stated “a guilty individual among people is considered as a passenger in the ship who is going to sink it by an ax. Other protest and he said “I am just making hole in my own space. Obviously if others do not stand against him, all passengers will be sunk”.
Therefore we have to control who are guilty in order to prevent society sinking. We should not ignore the role of Moral police in the society. we have to set up what Allah has said in the society in order to arrive to destination safely.
