文化警察24時 (10) 女子旅にヒジャブを(イラン)

Posted by: huepod





毎月第2週目は「文化警察24時」をお届けします。

イランでは女性がヒジャブ(ペルシャ語では「ヘジャブ」)を着用することが法律で義務付けられています。旅行客も例外ではありません。同じイスラム圏でも国によって対応が分かれるヒジャブですが、おしゃれ上手なイランの女性は、ヒジャブをカラフルに着こなしている人も多いようです。

「文化警察24時」は、少し英語が苦手!という皆さんを対象にした、長さもレベルも聞きやすい番組です。しっかり聞いて、しっかり声に出して練習してみましょう。

【お知らせ】番組の最後にJoeとKeiがリスナーの皆さんからの質問に答えるコーナーを設けました。質問はメール(huepod@gmail.com)、あるいはTwitter(ハッシュタグ #huepod)やFacebookの番組ページまでお気軽にどうぞ!

***Script***

Officer Trev is seated next to an unknown non-Islamic woman on a flight to Iran. As they approach Iranian airspace, Trev tells the woman that she must cover her hair with a hijab.

Trev: Ma'am, ma'am… excuse me, I'm so sorry to wake you up.

W: Oh… Is everything OK?

Trev: Yeah, everything's fine. I just thought you might've missed the intercom message. We're flying into Iranian airspace so all women are required by the Islamic Republic of Iran to cover their hair with a hijab.

W: That means all women? I'm actually not an Islamic Muslim.

Trev: I completely understand ma'am, however in accordance with Iranian laws, all women need to cover their hair, regardless of religion. The only time they can be without a hijab is at home if their husband, or the man of the house, allows it.

W: Geez, I never knew the laws were that strict. Unfortunately, I don't have an actual Hijab. I do have a sort of lightweight scarf though.

Trev: That should be fine for now, as long as you're only exposing the round of your face I don't think anyone will be too upset.

W: Great. Thank you so much. I'll make sure to remember this the next time I travel to Iran!
