The Iranian government has banned women from acting in commercials. A woman acted in an ice cream commercial. The government of that country has issued this order while it is controversial.
What happened? – An ice cream ad featured a woman with her hijab loosened. Iran’s Islamic leaders have condemned it as a violation of religious faith. Iran’s Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance subsequently brought the ban.
In this regard, a letter has been sent to the advertising film companies on behalf of the concerned ministry. Radio Free Europe reported that it was mentioned in it.
The body responsible for “enjoining right and forbidding evil” in the Islamic Republic of Iran has filed a lawsuit against the Iranian ice-cream manufacturer Domino over two controversial commercials, which it says are “against public decency” and “insult women’s values.” pic.twitter.com/Brho4SGZj3

Officials have also said that it is insulting to the values of women. There are opinions that this action of the government depends on the issue of hijab.
Hijab has been compulsory in Iran since 1979. However, some women have protested against this at various times. Because of that they have been arrested.
