In Iran, women have taken to the streets in protest against the hijab. These women post their pictures and videos on social media by removing the hijab. There has also been an uproar about this. Actually, in Iran, women must wear hijab in public places. The government had declared July 12 as Hijab and Holiness Day to force women to wear the hijab.

Women remove hijab in protest against Hijab and Holiness Day

Protesting this day, Iranian women removed their hijab and shared their photos and videos. Men also came forward in support of women.

Women’s rights in Iran are limited. All women must wear hijab in public places. For women who do not wear hijab in public places or keep their hair covered while wearing hijab, there is a provision ranging from fines to jail terms.

Women are also arrested in Iran for not wearing the hijab. According to reports, women were not allowed to enter public transport, including buses, government offices and banks, for not wearing the hijab. Medical institutions and universities are also being monitored in some cities of Iran. Action is taken here if women are found without hijab.

According to Ellen Hogarth of Amnesty International, a leading global human rights organization, Iran has a long and poor record of harassment of women. Women opposing these sexist laws know its risks. Three Iranian girls, Monireh, Yasman and Mozgan, are serving 30 years in prison for giving flowers to female passengers on a subway train in Tehran.

Hogarth said these women had recorded a video expressing their hope for a future where all women in Iran would be free to dress as they wanted.

Hogarth said that after this video went viral, many allegations against women for not wearing the hijab, including promoting prostitution. Such harassment is a violation of fundamental human rights.

Iranian-American journalist and women’s rights activist Christ Alinejad tweeted, “Iranian women will shake the government of Iran by saying no to hijab on the streets of the country by removing their hijab.” This is called the women’s revolution. It is a crime to walk without wearing a hijab in Iran. Iranian men will also be with us.

Women are allowed to wear clothes of their choice.

Dima Dabos of Equality Now, an NGO, argues that women should be allowed to dress as they please and not be treated like criminals.

He said it violates their human rights, including their freedom of expression, belief and equality. This is a kind of gender discrimination.

Tehran’s Imam Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami said that if a woman disobeys hijab laws made by the government, it is a sin, equivalent to stealing or embezzling. It is entirely wrong to say this. This is not the word of Allah. Neither in the Qur’an nor any religious text, it has been said so.

Dabos warns that the country’s rapid crackdown on women wearing the hijab is another example of growing religious extremism in the region where religion is used to harass women and girls.
