A report Wednesday revealed that a statewide initiative in Iran will teach kindergartners the importance of chastity and wearing the hijab.
Iran has arrested about 70 Christians since Christmas in a crackdown that demonstrates the limits of religious tolerance by Islamic leaders, who often boast they provide room for other faiths.
Tehran's Gov. Morteza Tamadon has stressed the importance of "popularizing" Islamic teachings among Iranians, advising that kindergarteners be taught "before reaching those in higher education," the Guardian reports.
