Dubai: Flames of protest in Iran against wearing the hijab continue. Protesters clashed with security personnel there on Friday. The country’s TV channel estimated that 26 protesters and police personnel would have died in the protests that took place from last Saturday to Thursday after the funeral of 22-year-old Masa Amini, who died in police custody. However, the government did not reveal how the death toll was calculated. The TV anchor said that the official figures will be revealed later.

Masa Amini from the Kurdistan Province was arrested by the moral department police for not wearing the hijab properly.. The young woman was seriously injured in their custody and died while being treated at the hospital. Due to this, there are protests across the country against the behavior of the police. The UN has also condemned the incident. Police say that she died of heart attack. At the time of his arrest, Ami was seen wearing a headscarf as mandated by the Islamic State. Officials in some other countries have accused their opposition forces of inciting protesters and trying to create unrest and unrest in Iran. On the other hand, the government of Iran has imposed restrictions on internet services for the people there, regardless of the outside world, to prevent rallies and protests from spreading to other areas.
