News: Iran protests

Shopkeepers in Tehran fight back regime’s ‘morality police’

NCRI - The Iranian regime’s suppressive ‘Gashte Ershad’ – the so-called morality police - on Thursday carried out a spot inspection of the clothes stock market in Tehran, harassing women and shopkeepers.

Protests ensued as a result soon after 11 am, local time.

In one case, some women, who came to buy clothes, shouted at the suppressive forces, leading to a skirmish. Shopkeepers joined the women in their protest.

In another case, two youths clashed with the suppressive forces.

In April the mullahs' regime launched a new plan to suppress women on the bogus charge of "improper veiling."

It deployed some 7,000 so-called undercover 'morality police officers' in Tehran tasked with suppressing women on the streets and alerting official law enforcement agencies of instances of “improper veiling” and other “violations” of the mullahs’ fundamentalist laws.
