Poverty and hunger is better than the state in which the sacred name of Imam Hussain(AS) is burned publicly. In Iran you get jailed for disrespecting Sunni figures but apparently Shia sanctities are fair game.What religious symbols do you mean?
At any rate, we can say that in this regard, Iran differs from Pakistan in two ways:
1) So-called societal "modernization". There's a contrast in indicators such as female school enrollment, urbanization, access to media and the internet and so on.
One of the most shining thinkers of the Islamic Revolution, our dear shahid Morteza Motahhari, once had a dream: that of a process of modernization which would not end up threatening the standing of our religion in society, unlike to the path taken by the freemason-controlled west. He correctly argued that historically, the Islamic world had not witnessed the type of tensions observable in the west between religious institution and science.
However, forty three years on, my personal conclusion is that this objective was missed. And the reason squarely lies in the cultural aggression Islamic Iran and the Iranian population have been subjected at the hands of an immensely resourceful enemy. No nation, no society is immune to social engineering, propaganda, psy-ops on a grand scale - no matter the authenticity, the robustness, the purity of its civilizational traditions.
Modernization, in turn, immensely facilitates the enemy's sinister task, because it opens up technological and societal avenues for cultural aggression.
In other terms, we will witness similar phenomena in Pakistan once similar tresholds of social and human development (in the sense of the United Nation's HDI) are reached.
Motahhari's vision would certainly have come true, had Iran been spared from these three to four decades of all-out soft war, because his theoretical premises were accurate.
2) The intensity of above mentioned cultural aggression in the case of Iran versus Pakistan. Of course the imperialist enemy and its underlying globalist oligarchy have no intention of sparing any nation - Islamic or non-Islamic. However, they are concentrating on their main geostrategic adversaries first. Hence their obsession with Iran and the Islamic Revolution, which has been a priority target to them.
This all being said, the school girls shown in the media during recent days were essentially from the upper middle class to upper class bourgeoisie. Not representative of the majority of society.
Why is the majority allowing all of this to happen. Do they have no ghairat for their honor and their deen? What use are their missiles and weapons if their daughters are stripping their clothes and nothing is sacred in their country anymore?
