An Iranian cleric who warned a woman to conform to standards of modesty and cover her eyes was subsequently beaten so badly by the offending (and offended) female that he spent three days in the hospital.

According to a report by Bloomberg News, Hojatoleslam Ali Behesti encountered the woman on the street in the town of Shahmirzad.  When he told her to cover her eyes, she began insulting and kicking him.  Behesti called it “the worst day of my life”, and said he had to be hospitalized as a result of his injuries.

  1. He would not have told a woman to cover HER eyes. I think the correct version would be that he told her to cover up, and she told him to cover HIS eyes.

    Also, his name is BeheSHti, not Behesti.
    Great news, though 🙂

    YES! It's about time for the tide to turn!

    She may have looked AT him, instead of looking at the ground. Oh, the nerve!

    Good for her, I hope she give all the other women some ideas.

    It's about time someone beat their ass, I'm just happy it was one of their own and not ours, lol

    ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! HOW ABOUT TRAINING ALL WOMEN TO RESPOND WITH THAT, AND TERRORIZE THE BULLIES FOR A CHANGE?
