Iran's government is urging its citizens to use text messages to report on their neighbors or on strangers if they believe they are guilty of violating the country's public code of conduct.

The country's judiciary has set up a text messaging system that will allow people to report on others for doing things like removing their Islamic headscarf, throwing co-ed parties, drinking alcohol, or even posting messages on social media that are considered inappropriate. The government is now encouraging citizens to avoid entering into arguments with one another about codes of conduct and instead to record and report any offenses to the government through an official complaint.

Experts say that Iran's government is encouraging its citizens to play vigilante and spy on one another in order to enforce the government's hard-line religious and moral codes of conduct.

"Iranian officials' policies and regulations towards women's dress code have long surpassed the lines of invasion of privacy and violating freedom of expression, reaching into the territory of fanatical obsession. It is deeply troubling to see officials promote the spying of citizens on citizens, enlarging the circle of those who violate women's basic rights," Omid Memarian, deputy director at the Center for Human Rights in Iran, told Newsweek.
