Women banned from wearing make-up on Iranian television....
You mean they can wear make-up elsewhere???
Iranian women should no longer be allowed to wear make-up when they appear on state television, according to a senior Iranian executive cited by the reformist Etemad newspaper. "Make-up (worn) by women during television programmes is illegal and against Islamic Sharia law ... There should not be a single case," said the head of the state broadcaster IRIB Ezatollah Zarghami, during a conference of network directors.
Zarghami, a former member of the Revolutionary Guards, has been re-appointed by the country's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
He also stated that female guests should appear on TV shows "preferably" hosted by women.
