According to Arab media, Ayatollah Khamenei was asked in a television program whether the hijab is necessary for female characters in animated films. In response, Ayatollah Khamenei said that although it is not necessary to wear the hijab in such a hypothetical situation. But if we look at the consequences of not wearing the hijab, then animation needs the hijab.

It should be noted that since the 1979 revolution in Iran, it has been made mandatory for women to wear the hijab.
