Deputy of Cultural Propagation at al-Zahra University‎:‎
Hujjat al-Islam Tehrani said that intellectual support for chastity and the hijab must be ‎clarified for the youth and added, “We need to have proper culture-building practices in order ‎‎to promote chastity and hijab.”‎

RNA – Speaking at the “Chastity and the Hijab” Conference which was held by the Chastity ‎and Hijab Committee along with al-Zahra University in Qom, Hujjat al-Islam Hoseyn Tehrani, ‎the deputy of cultural propagation at al-Zahra University, said, “The Supreme Leader of the ‎Islamic Revolution [Ayatollah Khamenei] stated that the Islamic hijab is a means of ‎protecting human chastity.”‎
‎ ‎
He said that we need to have proper culture-building practices in order to promote chastity ‎and hijab and added, “The issue of chastity and hijab has been discussed in our country ‎since the beginning of the Islamic Revolution but the manner of dealing with those who wear ‎the hijab incorrectly is important and must be taken into consideration.”‎

Hujjat al-Islam Tehrani‎ explained that the religion of Islam has defined specific infrastructure ‎works for such social issues‏ ‏and said, “We must work on the issue of faith, modesty and ‎chastity for girls and women in society. Intellectual support for chastity and hijab must be ‎explained for the youth‏.‏‎”‎

Referring to the importance of modesty and chastity, His Eminence ‎stated, “Immodesty is ‎more harmful than not wearing the hijab and there are many factors involved in the ‎prevalence of immodesty, such as the extreme mixing of unrelated men and women that we ‎see in the media. These culture-building practices ‎are incorrect and leads to the ‎pervasiveness of immodesty in society.”‎
‎ ‎
Hujjat al-Islam Tehrani said that we must take the culture of chastity and modesty from the ‎Ahl al-Bayt and transfer it to the youth and noted, “Lady Fatimah al-Zahra went to her ‎father’s grave at night but when Lady Zaynab bint Ali arrived in Damascus, she said, ‘don’t ‎you have any modesty in the way you look at the [holy women of the] Ahl al-Bayt?’ These ‎are instances of the propagation of modesty that we have to explain to this youth.”‎
