Jaggi Vasudev, i.e. Sadhguru, has given his support to the women of Iran who are opposing the hijab. He has said that women should be free in what to wear and what not to wear. In a tweet, Sadhguru wrote,
‘How women should dress should not be decided by any religious (person) or any person with corrupt practices. Let the women decide how they want to dress. Such a culture should be abolished by punishing someone for what he is wearing. Whether this tradition is religious or something else.’
Neither the religious nor the lecherous should determine how women should dress. Let women decide how they want to be attired. May this retributive culture of punishing someone for what they wear be put to an end, religious or otherwise. – Sg#MahsaAmini #Iran #Hijab

Women’s hijab protest continues in Iran.
At this time, women all over Iran are opposing the hijab. This whole matter started at a metro station in Tehran, the capital of Iran. On September 13, a girl named Mahsa Amini visited Tehran with her brother. When she got off the train, the Morality Police stopped her.
According to the police, Mahsa was not wearing the hijab properly. They took him to the police station. When his health deteriorated, the police officers took him to the hospital. After three days, it was found that Mahsa had died.
The police and the ministry claim that Mahsa had a heart condition. Because of this, she fell due to dizziness. However, Mahsa’s father said that Mahsa did not have any disease. He alleged that the police assaulted her in the police station, due to which she went into a coma. A picture of Mahsa lying on the hospital bed also surfaced. In this, the marks of assault are visible on her face.
Now women in Iran are posting videos of themselves cutting their hair. In different cities, women gather and burn their hijabs collectively.
