Iranian women chop off hair, burn hijabs to condemn Mahsa Amini’s death: Painful videos appear on internet


The death of 22-year-old Iranian woman Mahsa Amini while in police custody for not wearing the hijab ‘properly’ has sparked a huge wave of anger among Iranian women. In protest against the oppressive system, the women burn their hijabs and cut their hair. Many emotional and furious videos are popping up on social platforms.

People marched to Trehan Hijab Street, or “kerchief street”, in the capital. As many as six people are reported to have been killed since the start of the protest against the hijab laws and the vice squad, followed by the death of Mahsa Amini.

Iranian police have given no other explanation for Mahsa Amini’s arrest. Amini’s mother told Iranian news channels that her daughter followed the rules and wore a long, loose robe. Amini was detained as she got off the subway with her brother, despite his pleas that they were visitors to the city, her mother claims.
