Iran protests: Pro-government rallies take over Tehran after week of deadly clashes


Pro-government protesters in Tehran took a stand on Friday in favor of compulsory veiling for women, calling for those who demonstrate against the veil to be “executed”.

The latest rallies came as Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi issued a stark warning against a wave of protests across the country this week, in support of a 22-year-old woman who was arrested and died in custody for allegedly worn her scarf too loosely.

Raisi called the anti-government protesters “enemies of the state”.

“They (the enemies) want to ride a wave and create riots and unrest. They think with such moves they can stop the nation,” Raisi said.

“We have repeatedly announced that if anyone has a fair comment, we will listen to it. But anarchy? Disrupt national security? Human security? No one will succumb to it.”

A week of unrest in Iran

The unfolding crisis in Iran began with an outpouring of public anger over the death of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old woman who was arrested by vice squads in Tehran last week for allegedly wearing her Islamic headscarf too much. cowardly.

Police said she died of a heart attack and was not abused, but her family questioned that account. Amini’s death drew strong condemnation from Western countries and the United Nations.

Following the path of their compatriots through Iran, dozens of Iranians around the world protested by cutting their hair and burning hijabs outside Iranian embassies.
