A prominent Iranian American Journalist, Masih Alinejad shares a video of a woman taking off her hijab on stage. The Iranian woman who took off her hijab is named Zeynab Kazempour. She removed her headscarf during the annual of the Tehrau construction engineering organization on Friday.
Later, The Board of Directors denied her for the board, according to the Iran International report. She gave a brief statement saying, ” I don’t recognise the assembly that denies candidates the right to run because they don’t wear the headscarf.” According to Islam, she insulted their Islamic headscarf by throwing it on the ground. Law was filed against her for insulting hijab during the election of Building engineering organization in Tehran.
Iran has been a country where the veil, or hijab, has been a legal requirement for women in public since the Islamic Revolution in 1979. However, in recent years, there has been a growing movement of women who have been protesting against this law and fighting for their right to choose what to wear.
Women against Islamic law of hijab in Iran.
There is a diverse range of opinions among women in Iran regarding the Islamic law of hijab, which requires women to cover their hair and bodies in public. While some women choose to wear the hijab as a religious or cultural expression, others oppose it as a form of compulsory dress that restricts their freedom and limits their opportunities.
There have been various forms of protest against the mandatory hijab law in Iran, with women organizing campaigns, marches, and social media movements to voice their dissent. In recent years, many women have been arrested and sentenced to prison for publicly removing their headscarves as a form of protest.
However, it is important to note that not all Iranian women oppose the hijab law. Many women support it and choose to wear the hijab voluntarily as a matter of personal and religious choice. The issue of hijab in Iran is complex and deeply intertwined with political, social, and cultural factors. The debate over the hijab law reflects broader questions about individual rights, gender equality, and the role of religion in society.
