While Iranians say that the Eyjafjallajokull eruption was not only God’s doing but a suggestion is made “that the problems created by the volcano are akin to God’s own sanction against EU countries”, one Iranian cleric, Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedigi, gave a more scientific explanation on why earthquakes occur:
“Many women who do not dress modestly lead young men astray and spread adultery in society which increases earthquakes…”.
