Women in Iran defy the Islamic regime by removing their headscarves and waving them in the air in protests over police custody death, video shows


  • Mahsa Amini died on Friday, four days after her arrest for allegedly breaking hijab-wearing rules.
  • At her funeral, videos show women protesting by taking off their headscarves and waving them in the air.
  • Police responded by firing tear gas at protesters and making arrests, per reports.
According to accounts, there were protests on Saturday at the funeral of a 22-year-old woman who died after being detained by Iran’s Islamic morality police.
According to Insider, Mahsa Amini passed away on Friday, four days after witnesses claimed police in Tehran forced her into a van and beat her.
She was detained for allegedly breaking the rigorous guidelines for wearing a hijab. The assertion that Amini passed away from a “sudden” heart attack after being detained by police is disputed by her family and should be looked into, according to human rights organizations.
Mourners denounced Amini’s “strange” death at her funeral, which was held in Saqqez, where she was born and raised in Iran’s Kurdistan region.
According to The National, mourners at the funeral chanted, “Death to the dictator,” in reference to Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. According to recordings authenticated by the BBC Persian service, some protestors marched toward the regional governor’s office.
According to footage, a number of ladies took off their hijabs in opposition to the hijab-wearing regulations that were applied to the arrest of Amini. Masih Alinejad posted a video of some ladies in Saqqez chanting anti-government chants while waving their headscarves in the air.

According to BBC News, police used tear gas to disperse the crowd and detained some demonstrators who were moving toward the local governor’s office.
According to another video posted by Alinejad, women all around the nation have been filming themselves cutting their hair and tearing their hijabs.
Since the Islamic revolution of 1979, wearing a hijab has been required in Iran, and in recent weeks, according to RFE/RL, the Iranian government has taken harsh action against women who are deemed to be disobeying.

According to Netblocks, a cybersecurity and internet governance monitor, internet connections were disrupted during the protests in Tehran and Saqqez, as reported by BBC News. According to the news, users claimed they were unable to communicate content over Whatsapp or upload films to Instagram.
Iran has previously blocked access to the internet to stifle political demonstrations. A week-long internet blackout was imposed by the nation’s Supreme National Security Council in 2019 in an effort to quell protests across the country.
