University Students in Iran Capital Protest Restrictions on Women's Clothing
By Staff Writer
Iranian university students held a defiant protest against the regime on Monday in Tehran over restrictions on what female students are allowed to wear on campus.
A large number of Tehran University students held a rally on Monday morning, protesting the regime’s oppressive policies under the pretext of hijab regulations on campus.
A video of the protest was posted on the YouTube channel of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK), the main democratic opposition that seeks to overthrow the mullahs’ regime.
The university’s Regulations Committee is imposing repressive rules related to women's clothing, according to the students.
“College students would rather die than live in shame,” the students were heard chanting.
One of the students was seen holding a sign reading, “Freedom of choice is our right.”
