Iran anti-Hijab protests: Raisi says Mahsa Amini’s death ‘tragic’ but chaos unacceptable

Published Date:

Iran is going through an intense spell of anti-hijab protests. The death of a 22-year-old Mahsa Amini rattled the country with a massive wave of protests over the subjugation of women and their rights .

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi condemned the “chaos” in the country and blamed outside forces. A young Mahsa Amini died while in the custody of Iran’s morality police.

“Those who took part in the riots must be dealt with decisively, this is the demand of the people,” said Raisi in a televised interview.

“People’s safety is the red line of the Islamic Republic of Iran and no one is allowed to break the law and cause chaos,” he added. Iran’s Raisi calls it an enemy target plan to destroy their national unity.

MAHSA AMINI – IRAN PROTESTS

Mahsa Amini, a young Kurdish woman, died on September 16, three days after her arrest for allegedly breaching Iran’s strict rules for women on wearing hijab and modest clothing.

Ebrahim Raisi also said that the nation had felt “grief and sorrow” over her death. Moreover, he stressed that forensics and judiciary experts will present a final report on it. He also warned that “protests are different to riots”.

The anti-hijab protests led mostly by women are witnessing slogans like “Woman, Life, Freedom,” the protesters are chanting in Iran. Furthermore,

These protests saw one-of-its kind methods in which women are burning their headscarves in defiance. Some are even cutting off their hair.

Not only in Iran, their call for action is getting an equal response in solidarity from fellow women in other countries. Notably, Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who spent six years in jail in Iran, also joined these loud voices of women and cut her hair in a video.

Mahsa Amini‘s bereaved parents demanded “a thorough investigation into the death of their daughter.

It is worth noting here that the Iranian government and their economy are already hit by sanctions over the country’s nuclear programme.
