Crimes against morality like crimes against other elements such as economy, spiritual dignity, and physical health can be committed in an individual or organized way. Naturally the organized form gives rise to severer punishments for the perpetrators. In the field of moral cases, due to the lack of any mechanism towards criminalizing certain crimes related to this field, there is no clear distinction between the individual or organized commission of the above mentioned crimes. However, this is not peculiar to this field and embraces other fields as well. It is noteworthy that the organized form in this field may accompany the intention of the subverting the Islamic system and disturbing its foundations.
Although there is no special category for these crimes in jurisprudential sources and statute law, the possibility of extending common jurisprudential terms to this type of crimes can be taken into account or be proved as something necessary so that the crimes at this level and with these motives would be punished in a proper way.
Among jurisprudential terms, infringement of public security and corruption on the earth can be extended to this type of crimes more properly than others. Of course, this requires determining the relation between these two terms. There are two views discussed in this field by jurisprudents i.e. distinction of the two termsor their overlapping. Numerous traditions and the views of earlier jurisprudents suggest that these two terms whether separately or commonly can extend to crimes against morality in case of being organized and with the intention of subversion of the Islamic system.
