Iran: Women Who Refuse to Wear Hijab are Barred From Universities

Iran: Women Who Refuse to Wear Hijab are Barred From Universities

“Female students … suspended from classes and threatened with ‘zero grades’ for defying head covering law.”

With Iran still reeling from months of nationwide protests, the Mullah regime is tightening the enforcement of the Islamic dress code. The regime is barring female students from universities for refusing to wear hijab, the Sharia-mandated headscarf, recent media reports say.

The restrictions come despite an uprising that began last September following the death of a 22-year-old woman, Mashan Amini, at the hands of Iran’s Islamic Morality Police. She was arrested and tortured by the regime-appointed Sharia enforcers for not complying with the hijab law.

Hundreds of protesters were killed and at least 15,000 detained as the regime clamped down on the ensuing anti-hijab protests, with demonstrators calling for an end to the Islamic rule and toppling of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.

The Guardian reported Monday:

Female students reportedly given sham disciplinary ‘hearings’, suspended from classes and threatened with ‘zero grades’ for defying head covering law.

Videos recently shared by citizen journalists show the harassment of women and girls in subways, streets and university campuses by disciplinary committees and pro-regime civilians. In defiance, female university students across the country have been recording themselves without headscarves.

Several female activists have told the Guardian that detentions and arrests of young women are on rise. They said they have been warned of serious consequences if they fail to adhere to the mandatory hijab law.

The Guardian spoke to nine suspended students who fear their plans to study further are unclear after they were given suspensions and banned from their campuses.

“We’re being mass banned from the campus for refusing to wear a hijab, and in the past few days there has been a violent crackdown on us for peacefully sitting in protest,” said one student from a university in Tehran. She said security officials “violently threw us out of the classrooms”.

The student said their professors had been attacked and banned from the campus for supporting them.

The students’ council of Iranian universities has said that at least 40 female students were “conditionally suspended” from classes for failing “to fully observe” hijab rules. However, the NGO The Human Rights Activists in Iran (HRAI) say that at least 64 students have been suspended and three expelled.

In recent months, the Shia-Islamic regime has doubled down on the enforcement of the Sharia dress code, with Iran’s judiciary chief threatening to punish women “without mercy” if they step out of their homes without a hijab. The Iranian police now use the latest surveillance and facial recognition technologies to identify hijab law violators.

Iran has a dedicated force of Sharia-enforcing Morality Police, who are further bolstered by the Basij militia affiliated with the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), the Mullah regime’s military and foreign terrorist arm. The IRGC militia was among the shock troops deployed by the regime to quell anti-hijab unrest, who even used live ammunition against unarmed protesters.

While Feminists in the West wage war on the imagined evils of patriarchy from their sheltered safe spaces of academia and workplace, women in Iran and other Muslim countries face violent oppression and real discrimination. Blinded by their hatred of Western civilization, these leftist agitators remain oblivious to the threat of creeping Sharia through uncontrolled mass migration.

In Iran they want college women to wear hijabs so men cannot see their faces. In our country they want high school girls to shower with transexuals so men can see them in the nude.

I thought they put them in jail. They must have liberalized.

What a benighted country.
They should just identify as men.

Interesting, isn’t it, when a country priding itself on being “multicultural” faces the fact of another culture? “Multi” …MEANS… oh – forget it…

They seem nice

Folks that is a real Patriarchy, not the pretend /made up version which some western women claim to face.

Anyone get a comment from Ilhan Omar?

I’d ask where are all the feminists, but I’m know, helping the trannies with their makeup and giving twerk dance lessons to their children..

We’ve come along way baby

The thirst for further crusading to change foreign cultures in this country no longer exists.

    Right, because the dictates of a corrupt body of totalitarian thugs who use the religion as a cover for their bloodlust for absolute power is the “culture” of the Persian people. Good lord you’re a tool.

        The point, if you can get it, is that the government does not equal the people, let alone the culture. Nobody is saying yes let’s intervene militarily to end the mullahs’ hijab “policy.”

          The govt remains in power b/c the people allow it to. Once the people choose to reject the govt then the current govt will be replaced with something else. The govt in power is very closely related to the will of the people, even in totalitarian States. See Nicolae Ceausescu.

Of course the Iranians can live in a religious dictatorship if they so chose.

But why are the Dems assisting them to develop nuclear weapons?

What about men who refuse to wear hijab even though they identify as women? What about men who insist on wearing hijab because they identify as women?

Who has final authority on these questions – the mullah or DEI Chief?

This seemingly small issue on a larger scale is what France is going to face in the future. Muslims see the world in black and white with no gray. We are seeing what living with Islam means to the infidel world in Muslim-controlled countries. It is not a welcoming situation. Wherever they congregate, they destroy any culture that conflicts with their own. They disobey any law that conflicts with their own. Any short-term agreement with any society is only to gain the upper hand and is NEVER sincere. An example is the porno books in public schools where the Muslims protested against them. That seems like they are agreeing with conservatives on school issues but they are not. Only on one single issue would they agree and if they had their way, prayer to Allah would be allowed in their schools. When will the “Free” world realize that they are simply not compatible with freedom and individual choice?

The brutally violent Iranian theocratic pigs get a free pass from the Guardianista Left for raping, torturing and beating a teenage girl to death for her hair showing because they wish to eradicate Jews.
