Protest against Hijab in Iran
These days women are protesting against the hijab in Iran. Men are also walking shoulder to shoulder with women in this protest. Iranian women in the country are protesting against the law by burning their hijabs. The main reason for this was the death of a 22-year-old woman in police custody. The Morality Police of the country had arrested the victim Mahsa Amini for not wearing the hijab properly. It is said that during this, the police had beaten up the woman in a custodial manner due to which she went into a coma. Mahsa dies just three days later. When this news spread like wild fire, outraged women across the country started protesting against Mehsa’s death against the hijab.
America holds the Morality Police responsible
America has taken action against the atrocities on women in Iran. The United States imposed sanctions on Iran’s Morality Police over allegations of mistreatment of Iranian women and blamed the unit for the custodial death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini. The US said that it is because of the Morality Police that protests are taking place around Iran.
America imposed sanctions
At the same time, the US Treasury Department also accused Iran’s Morality Police of violating the rights of peaceful protesters. It also imposed sanctions on seven senior Iranian military and security officials, including the head of the Iranian military’s ground forces. In Iran, Amini, a Kurdish woman, was arrested by Morality in Tehran by police for not wearing a hijab properly and fell into a coma while in custody. After that he died. Officials have said they will investigate the cause of Amini’s death. Mehsa Amini was detained by the police on September 13 for not wearing a hijab.
