|MP Motahari hails gender segregation plan in Tehran municipality||
TEHRAN – Iranian MP Ali Motahari has sent a letter to Tehran mayor Mohammad Baqr Qalibaf hailing the initiative taken by the municipality to introduce the gender segregation plan.
The implementation of the gender segregation plan in different offices of the Tehran municipality is a praiseworthy move which is inspired by the holy religion of Islam, Motahari said in the letter. This plan should have been implemented years ago across the country, but unfortunately had been disregarded by all successive governments, he added.
He added that it is preferable that men and women work in separate work places whenever possible.
The plan recently introduced by the Tehran municipality has stirred different reactions from various groups and people.
He also asked Qalibaf not to get influenced by the criticism made against the plan.
