Iran Hijab Protest News: Demonstrations regarding the hijab have been going on in Iran for months. Meanwhile, President Ibrahim Raisi has honored Iran as the guarantor of the rights and freedoms of the Islamic Republic. At the same time, the United Nations (UN) says that in the midst of action on anti-government demonstrations, more than 300 people have lost their lives in defending the system. According to the UN, the government of Iran is engaged in using force to suppress the voices of the protesters.
At the same time, a top state security body meanwhile said that 200 people, including members of the security forces, have lost their lives in the atmosphere of unrest. These figures are very less than the figures released by the world body and rights groups. Since the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, protests against the hijab have been taking place in Iran.
Demonstration turned into popular rebellion
This is one of the most daring challenges since Iran’s Islamic Revolution of 1979. Demonstrations by furious Iranians from all levels of society have turned it into a popular uprising. Meanwhile, a video is also going viral on social media, showing authorities demolishing the home of Elnaj Recabi, a climber who took part in an international competition in October without a hijab.
At the same time, in its defense, a statement was issued by the head of the judiciary that the decision to demolish the house was issued four months ago because the family could not show the construction permit. Protesters are constantly demanding the end of the Islamic government.
