The death of Mahsa Amini, a young woman who passed away after being detained in Tehran by Iran’s notorious “morality police,” has sparked protests from Iranian women who are burning their hijabs and cutting off their hair.

The terrible incident sparked outrage in the public against the unjustified and even harsh treatment of women by this branch of the police. Even though at least three people died during the protests on Monday, women, and men continued to take to the streets in cities and towns around the nation on Tuesday.

Regardless of the conclusion, some parts of Iranian society are fed up with the morality police, claiming that their attempts to “re-educate” many women have resulted in long-term trauma.
