Iran Hails Turkey’s Hijab Law

A02556041.jpgTEHRAN (FNA) – Iran’s Presidential Advisor Mohammad Nasser Biriya has said that Turkey’s approval of the Hijab law shows Islam has prevailed in the country.

In a significant victory over secular forces, the Turkish parliament voted on Saturday to amend the constitution to lift a decade-old ban on Islamic headscarves at universities.

Addressing a conference in the central Iranian city of Yazd Saturday, Hojjatoleslam Biriya added that 29 years after the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, the remark made by the late Imam Khomeini on the spread of Islamic values is becoming a reality in most countries.

“We are witnessing the spread of Islam and strengthening of unity among Muslims across the world day by day,” he noted.
