Professor Shahriyārī usually demonstrated the right course of action by his deeds. I witnessed on numerous occasions that if there was someone who did not conduct himself properly or was ill-mannered, that Professor Shahriyārī would act with equanimity and would not reproach him directly. For example, if a woman was not properly veiled, the professor would lower his gaze and respond to her question succinctly. And his interlocutor would take the hint.
