Iran Prosecutes Woman For ‘Disrespecting’ Hijab

Iran Prosecutes Woman For ‘Disrespecting’ Hijab

Iran’s judiciary is prosecuting a woman for “disrespecting” the hijab.

This is after she threw her headscarf to the ground during a public meeting, an Iranian news agency reported on Saturday.

The Tasnim news agency said; “Legal proceedings have been launched against a woman who disrespected her headscarf during the election for the Tehran branch of the Iran Construction Engineering Organization.

“It was falsely claimed that this individual was disqualified (from the branch election) for not wearing the headscarf."

Iran has witnessed nationwide protests following the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in police custody following her arrest for an alleged breach of the dress code in September last year.

Also, it has been reported that several cafes, restaurants and pharmacies have been shut down for serving customers not covering their hair.
