MEK Iran: Mullahs Regime Cracks Down on Society Including Enforcement of Hijab Laws

The (PMOI / MEK Iran) and the (NCRI) believe that the women of Iran deserve better. Mrs. Maryam Rajavi has a ten-point plan for the democratic future of Iran that includes gender equality. Iranian women have been denied their rights for 40 years.

The domestic situation in Iran is very worrying. First of all, the Coronavirus health crisis is still claiming the lives of hundreds of Iranians every day and there is no sign of the crisis being brought under control. The coronavirus has taken the lives of over 117,200 people throughout Iran, according to the Iranian opposition, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran).

The levels of dissent are high, with many describing society as being in an explosive state. Over the past few years, the lives of the people have been made increasingly difficult because of the regime’s mismanagement, embezzlement, corruption, and poor political, economic, and social policies.

Because of the high levels of discontent in society and because it fears another major uprising, the regime is doing all it can to silence the people, in particular supporters of the (PMOI / MEK Iran), and MEK resistance units,  to create an atmosphere of fear.

The regime is currently piling resources into increasing the number of security forces on the street. It is trying very hard to quash gatherings before they turn into significant protests. Under the pretext of combatting street crime and hooligans, central headquarters have been set up to arrest protesters.

The treatment of political prisoners is also degrading. Political prisoners have never been treated well by the regime, but the mistreatment and physical and psychological torture is intensifying. More and more death sentences are being handed out and we are hearing about more executions of detained protesters.

The regime is also keeping a close eye on social media. Despite several social media outlets and messaging services being banned in the country, the resourceful people of Iran have found ways to spread information about protests and gatherings to make them as impactful as possible.

And latest reports indicate that the regime has set up a campaign, with the code name “Nazer”, to enforce the mandatory Hijab. However, it is very clear that the purpose of the operation is to arrest more women.

Women in Iran are showing themselves to be courageous and at the forefront of the Resistance movement. They are not acting like second-class citizens the regime wants them to believe they are and they are working hard to change their future into one that includes more freedom and more inclusiveness.

Not only do women in Iran oppose the regime’s mandatory Hijab laws, but many men do too. It is an old-fashioned law that has no place in modern society. If women appear in public without a hijab, they risk being sentenced to 74 lashes. Women have also been arrested and even given lengthy prison sentences for being improperly veiled, with some charges listed as “the spread of corruption” and “prostitution”.

The Iranian regime believes that by increasing pressure on women in Iran it can silence them. However, this increased pressure is having the opposite effect and it is making women even more determined to be heard.

With every year that goes by, approximately 5 percent more women fail to comply with the Hijab laws – even in the most religious parts of the country.

The more the regime puts pressure on the people of Iran, the more the people resent the regime.

The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran) and the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) believe that the women of Iran deserve better. Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the NCRI, has a ten-point plan for the democratic future of Iran that includes gender equality. Iranian women have been denied their rights for 40 years. The time has come for women to take back their freedom. The (PMOI / MEK Iran) is proud to be part of that effort.
