With non-Western cultures, you really have to humble yourself and drop a western centric view to at least understand them. Most people don’t know about the different sects of Islam, that Iranians and countries east don’t consider themselves to be Arabs (Persian is Indo-European, like English is Germanic). Lots of women as you have shown really do like to wear hijabs. I once saw two women hop out the front seat and into the back. They waited for the driver’s husband after that and they were ok with it.
