Top cleric says women without veils must die

AKI - Adnkronos international reported A top Muslim cleric in Iran, Hojatolislam Gholam Reza Hassani said on Wednesday that women in Iran who do not wear the hijab or Muslim headscarf, should die.
The death prnalty for not wearing a head scarf?????
"Women who do not respect the hijab and their husbands deserve to die," said Hassani, who leads Friday prayers in the city of Urumieh, in Iranian Azerbaijan.
Maybe they respect it and want to keep it safe, so they leave it at home.
"I do not understand how these women who do not respect the hijab, 28 years after the birth of the Islamic Republic, are still alive," he said.
I don't understand why the people have put up with this sort of abuse for 28 years.
"These women and their husbands and their fathers must die," said Hassani, who is the representative of the Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in eastern Azerbaijan.
So now they are not only going to kill the women who don't wear a head scarf, but also their husbands and their fathers?????
