History of Hijab and laws, Get your facts right

Iran- where women die for improper hijab, Anti-hijab protests demand justice for Mahsa Amini
DELHI, India - Sept. 25, 2022 - PRLog -- Anti-Hijab Protests: The world woke up to the viral videos where some women chopped off their hair and some burnt  their Hijab. They are Iranian women.

Why are Iranian women cutting their hair and burning their hijabs?
Massive anti-hijab protests erupted in Iran following the funeral of Mahsa Amini, who reportedly died in police custody after being arrested by the country's notorious morality police. While the protesters held the morality police responsible for the death of the young woman, the police, on the other hand, claimed that Amini died due to a heart attack. The police had also released closed-circuit footage from the police station, which shows when Amini collapsed.

What is happening in Iran?
Several videos surfaced on social media showing protesters shouting anti-government slogans.

Death to the dictator, WOMAN, LIFE, FREEDOM, were some of the slogans chanted by the crowd, while some women took off their head scarves. Police were seen firing tear gas, and some even suffered an injury.

What is an improper Hijab?
Mahsa Amini used to wear Hijab but according to her preference. And this is unlawful in Iran. Under Iran's Sharia (Islamic) law, Head scarves have been compulsory for women in Iran since the 1979 Islamic revolution. Members of the morality police enforce the strict dress code. Women are obliged to cover their hair and wear long-loose-fitting clothes. And who do not abide by these laws face public rebuke, fines, and even arrest.

Iran & Its Burqa Battle
Anti-Hijab protests & controversies are not new to Iran. Iran's government has been criticised in recent years over the treatment of people, especially young women, and videos uploaded on social media have shown officers forcing women into police vehicles.

Women are even prohibited from appearing in advertisements due to hijab rules.

Currently, only two countries, Iran, and Afghanistan, have imposed Hijab on women of their countries. However, this time it seems that these massive protests in Iran may force its government to loosen the strict rules of Burqa slightly.
