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.
