Authorities in Iran have been making clear their determination to enforce the compulsory hijab on women. 

It comes after months of protests demanding an end to the restriction. 

A hardline Iranian MP has issued an ultimatum to the judiciary to come up with measures to put a stop to women flouting the rules on headscarves, within the next 48 hours.

The mass protests that erupted across Iran in September have largely been quelled for now by brute force.
