The Iran government took action against the morality police after long protests for two months over the death of a young lady who was in Tehran jail for not covering her head with a hijab.
After more than two months of protests about Masha Amini’s murder for allegedly violating the country’s strict dress code for women, local media reports that Iran has terminated its morality police. Since the 22-year-old Iranian woman of Kurdish origin passed away on September 16, three days after her imprisonment by the morality police in Tehran, massive protests by women have arisen across Iran. The authorities called it riots.
Many more women are refusing to wear the hijab, especially in some areas of Tehran, while demonstrators burn their required head coverings and scream anti-government chants. The officials are yet to decide whether the head coverings with a hijab need to be mandatory or not for a woman.
