Ultra-Orthodox organization Eda Haredit (Badatz) slammed government intervention seeking to prevent gender segregation in the public sphere, in a flyer posted online Monday night.

According to the flyer, the government "recently burdened the world of the god-fearing," and used deception to wage war against barriers seeking to protect modesty and purity.  "Anyone who opens his mouth to protest is dragged by the arm to prison," and then subjected to evil lies by ignorant lawyers, Badatz explained.

In the last couple of weeks, it continued, a number of Jerusalem and Beit Shemesh's "beloved" were arrested on false charges.
