Default Iranian woman dies ‘after being beaten by morality police’ over hijab law

****ing disgusting, this **** is still going on in the world. 22 years of age, same age as my own daughter.

Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old Kurd, dies after ‘violent arrest’ for infringing hijab rules amid Iranian crackdown on women’s dress



A 22-year-old woman has died in an Iranian hospital days after being detained by the regime’s morality police for allegedly not complying with the country’s hijab regulations.

Mahsa Amini was travelling with her family from Iran’s western province of Kurdistan to the capital, Tehran, to visit relatives when she was reportedly arrested for failing to meet the country’s strict rules on women’s dress.

Witnesses reported that Amini was beaten in the police van, an allegation the police deny.

The news comes weeks after Iran’s hardline president, Ebrahim Raisi, ordered a crackdown on women’s rights and called for stricter enforcement of the country’s mandatory dress code, which has required all women to wear the hijab head-covering since the 1979 Islamic revolution.

Amini’s family were notified that she had been taken to hospital hours after her arrest. She was transferred to an intensive-care unit at Kasra hospital.

According to Hrana, an Iranian human rights organisation, Amini’s family were told during her arrest that she would be released after a “re-education session”.



The police later said that Amini had suffered a heart attack. Amini’s family disputed this, however, and said she was healthy and had not been experiencing any health problems.

Amini was in a coma after arriving at the hospital, her family said, adding that they were told by hospital staff that she was brain dead.

Photographs of Amini lying in the hospital bed in a coma with bandages around her head and breathing tubes have circulated on social media.

Her hospitalisation and death drew condemnation from Iranian celebrities and politicians. Mahmoud Sadeghi, a reformist politician and former MP, called on the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, to speak out over Amini’s case.

“What does the supreme leader, who rightfully denounced US police over the death of George Floyd, say about the Iranian police’s treatment of Mahsa Amini?” Sadeghi tweeted on Friday.


The interior ministry and Tehran’s prosecutor launched inquiries into the case after an order from Raisi, state media reported.

Raisi signed a decree on 15 August clamping down on women’s dress and stipulating harsher punishments for violating the strict code, both in public and online.

Women have been arrested across the country after the national “hijab and chastity day” declared on 12 July. One of the women was Sepideh Rashno, a writer and artist who was reportedly beaten and tortured in custody before making a forced apology on television.

Human rights groups have reported that extra security forces have been deployed outside Kasra hospital.

Tbf some women in those countries do bizarrely support these regimes where things like this happen.

A horrible outcome for the woman though, and her family.

It's like saying someone "chooses" to wear shoes when crossing a field full of cow poo. Their culture conditions them so they literally can't see it as an option not to wear their symbols of dehumanisation.

Either way though, it's an absolutely disgusting crime imo.

Veteran CNN journalist Christiane Amanpour cancelled an interview with Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi after he demanded she wear a headscarf for their meeting in New York.

Amanpour pointed out that no previous presidents had requested this when she interviewed them outside Iran.

She says a Raisi aide told her it was because of "the situation in Iran".


The death of a woman detained in Iran for allegedly breaking headscarf rules has sparked violent unrest there.

Mahsa Amini, 22, fell into a coma last week, hours after morality police arrested her.

Officers reportedly beat Ms Amini's head with a baton and banged her head against one of their vehicles. The police have said there is no evidence of any mistreatment and that she suffered "sudden heart failure".

The protests, now in their seventh day, have reached 80 other cities and towns in the Islamic Republic. At least 17 people have been killed.

The interview would have been Mr Raisi's first on US soil, during his visit to the UN General Assembly.

Amanpour said she had been ready to conduct it when one of the president's aides insisted she covered her hair at Mr Raisi's request.

"We are in New York, where there is no law or tradition regarding headscarves," she said later on Twitter.

Amanpour said Mr Raisi's aide had made it clear an interview would not happen if she did not wear a headscarf, saying it was "a matter of respect".

Her team walked away from the interview refusing what she called the "unprecedented and unexpected condition".

The US anchor later posted a picture of herself without a headscarf in front of an empty chair where Mr Raisi would have sat for their interview.

Mr Raisi was elected last year and signed an order in August to enforce a new list of restrictions.

These included the introduction of surveillance cameras to monitor and fine unveiled women or refer them for "counselling", and a mandatory prison sentence for any Iranian who questioned or posted content against the hijab (headscarf) rules online.

The restrictions led to an increase in arrests but also sparked a surge in women posting photos and videos of themselves without headscarves on social media - something that has only intensified in the days following Ms Amini's death.

Iran's president has vowed to take action against protesters after more than a week of anti-government demonstrations.

President Ebrahim Raisi pledged to "deal decisively" with the protests, which have now spread to most of Iran's 31 provinces.

Officials say some 35 people have been killed since protests broke out over the death of a women in police custody.

Mahsa Amini died after being detained for allegedly breaking headscarf rules.

Officers reportedly beat Ms Amini's head with a baton and banged her head against one of their vehicles. The police have said there is no evidence of any mistreatment and that she suffered "sudden heart failure".

And while Mr Raisi says her death will be investigated, his Interior Minister Ahmad Vahidi has insisted that Ms Amini had not been beaten.

"Reports from oversight bodies were received, witnesses were interviewed, videos were reviewed, forensic opinions were obtained and it was found that there had been no beating," he said.

Videos circulating on social media have captured violent unrest in dozens of cities across the country, with some showing security forces firing what appeared to be live ammunition on protesters in the north-western cities of Piranshahr, Mahabad and Urmia.

Amnesty International has warned that evidence it gathered pointed to "a harrowing pattern of Iranian security forces deliberately and unlawfully firing live ammunition at protesters".

It added that government forces shot 19 people dead - including three children - on Wednesday night alone. The BBC cannot independently verify this.
