Young Woman Dies After Being Beaten by Iran’s Modesty Police.

Mahsa sustained severe head injuries.

A 22 year old woman has died after being beaten by Iran’s modesty police. 

Mahsa Amini, reportedly a Kurd, died of head injuries after being arrested in Tehran allegedly because her hairline was showing under her hijab. 

Protests have erupted in parts of the Islamic Republic in response to Mahsa’s arrest and beating as news of her death emerged.  

 

It has also been reported that chief of the so-called morality police Colonel Mirzaei has been suspended following the incident. 

Iranian women have taken to social media to express their outrage at the killing and Iran’s ongoing oppression of women in the name of Islamic morality, many of them cutting off their hair. 

In Iran it is a legal requirement for women to cover their hair in public, and modesty codes are strictly enforced.
