Two Iranian women were detained after being beaten with yoghurt, allegedly for failing to cover their hair in public. On Thursday, the incident happened.
The strict guidelines the Iranian government has for women's head covering are nothing new. The nation, which has had violent protests since Mahsa Amini, 22, died after being detained by the infamous "moral police" for not properly donning her hijab, is now seeing the negative repercussions of the strict regulations on the average person.
In the now-famous footage, the man can be seen talking to one of the ladies who is exposed before he approaches the other two and throws a yoghurt tub from the store, hitting both of them in the heads. Iranian women run the risk of being arrested if they don't cover their hair. Many people have been disobeying the dress code in protests that have been held in response to the death of a young woman who was purportedly in violation of the hijab restrictions while she was being held in detention.
According to Mizan News Agency, the women were now detained after receiving an arrest order for failing to cover their faces in public. According to Iranian officials, the event is being investigated, and the male suspect has been detained for a disturbance of the peace.
Iranian women should wear the headscarf as a "religious necessity," said Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi. "The wearing of the hijab is required by law," he declared.Yet, opposition in Iranian society has recently been sparked by rage and disgust with the law. Since the murder of a 22-year-old Kurdish woman while in the care of the "morality police" last September, several Iranian women have stopped wearing headscarves. Mahsa Amini was held for purportedly disobeying the hijab law.
