Iran: Growing the Violence Against Women Under the Pretext of “Hijab”

Iranian regime authorities are escalating their crackdown against women. The mullahs’ regime agents are increasingly intervening and issuing verbal warnings to women in public.

If the woman in question does not comply, they’re sent to the police for interrogation, harassment.

“Many who remove their veils are wives and children of thieves,” said Tehran’s Friday Prayer leader, Ahmad Khatami.

Regarding the increase in violence against women by the repressive agents of the Mullahs’ regime in recent days, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the president-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) sent a message and said: “I urge the brave shop owners and businessmen to follow the model of Kourosh Shopping Mall in Tehran and protest the harassment of Iranian women by the misogynist regime’s patrols. They should close their shops and markets, especially on Tuesday, July 12″.


The “compulsory Hijab” is the other side of the “mandatory removal of veils.” It is a threadbare method of dictatorships, from Reza Shah to Khomeini, against which people must protest and rise up.”

The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) adopted a Women’s Freedoms and Rights plan in 1987. The NCRI emphasized the right of all Iranian women to “freely choose their clothing and covering,” and all its forces and members comply with it.
We have repeatedly reiterated our position: “No to the compulsory veil, no to the compulsory religion, and no to the compulsory government.”
