Iranian police announce “severe measures” to force women to wear hijab

There is a need for even more violence to force Iranian women to cover their heads and hair, so as to surrender to the regime that wants them without rights or freedoms. Tehran police chief Abasali Mohammadian announced that from today, Saturday 13 April, the police will intervene with “severe measures” against women who do not wear the hijab correctly. The repression of the Revolutionary Guards managed to put an end to months of protests and public demonstrations that began with the death of Mahsa Amini, a university student beaten to death in September 2002 in a barracks of the Gasht-e-Ershad, the moral police of the Islamic Republic.
