Women to be prosecuted ‘without mercy’ for not wearing veils, says Iran

Iran’s judiciary chief warned that women will face prosecution if they are seen without veil in public.

Gholamhossein Mohseni Ejei, who was protesting in the recent months, said Saturday that “Unveiling amounts to enmity [our] values.”

“Those who do such unusual acts will be punished. They will be tried without mercy.”

Although he did not give any details about the punishment, people who violate state laws regarding hijabs have been subject to arrest, fines and imprisonment, as well as death sentences.


After the September death of 22-year old Mahsa, women across the country are refusing to wear headscarves.

Ms. Amini was arrested for allegedly violating the headscarf law and was taken into police custody.

Protests across the country were met with a harsh police crackdown.

Human Rights Activists is a group that monitors the crackdown in Iran and has reported over 19,700 arrests during demonstrations.

Iran Human Rights (IHR), another group, estimates that 500 of them were killed, with 70 minors.

Previous to this, Mr Ejei stated that 22,000 people who were arrested during protests in recent times have been pardoned.

Iranian women are now fighting online. Many post videos with their bodies and hair exposed.

Iran’s Islamic Sharia law requires women to cover their hair and wear loose, long clothes to hide their bodies.

The interior ministry described the veil as “one the civilisational foundations” of Iran and “one the practical principles” of the Islamic Republic. It stated in a statement that they would not tolerate any “retreats or tolerance” regarding the matter.

Authorities are encouraging women to confront those who break the hijab laws. This is a step that was previously taken by religious extremists against them in public.
