“Don’t provoke me, bro!” the woman, who appears totally covered in black except for her nose and eyes, can be heard telling a member of the religious police who apparently ordered her to fully cover her face because she was not modestly dressed enough.

“Nothing in Islam says a woman must fully cover her face,” she tells him, “and I already have half of my face covered.” She continues: “Are you only here to provoke me? I have children and I need to shop for them. Leave me alone.”

The second video shows a uniformed policeman standing next to the woman, who continues to shout at the religious police member who told her to cover up. However, according to local media, no arrest was made.
