Woman beaten in broad daylight because ‘she wasn’t wearing hijab the right way’

A woman was viciously beaten in a public park because her head scarf was deemed ‘insufficient’, activists have said.

The terrified woman had been wearing a red scarf pushed to the back of her head in public park in Iran when a heated conversation began between a man and another woman. Disturbing footage secretly filmed by an onlooker then shows two women wearing all-black coverings barge onto the scene and begin shouting at the woman. The aggressive group, who are believed to be members of the Islamic theocracy’s morality police, become increasingly violent towards the terrified women.



Other women appear to join in as the group become increasingly violent. The woman can be heard screaming in terror as the shocking abuse continues. She can later be seen lying on the floor, crying in pain and without her headscard.

The video was uploaded by Facebook group My Stealthy Freedom and has since been spread online by various dissident groups.

In a caption, the activists wrote: ‘This woman is savagely beaten up by morality police as punishment for her insufficient hijab. And they tell us hijab is a ‘small issue’.’ They added: ‘We expose them and we resist compulsory hijab.’ The group’s founder said to the thugs who beat the woman: ‘Shame on you’.

Women in Iran have been required to wear the veil since the Islamic Revolution in 1979. They’re also only allowed to show their face, hands and feet in public and are supposed to wear only modest colours. Yet despite this, women have been pushing the boundaries of the law by wearing loose and brightly coloured headscarves.
