Iran: Woman declared brain dead after arrest by morality police for not complying with hijab rules



Did they beat her? Why wouldn’t they have done so? That’s what the Qur’an says to do with a woman from whom one fears disobedience (4:34).

“Iranian Woman Brain Dead After Arrest By Morality Police Over Hijab Rules,” Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, September 15, 2022:

A 22-year-old Iranian woman has been declared brain dead just hours after reports spread that she was beaten and arrested by morality police in Tehran for not complying with the country’s mandatory hijab rules.

According to reports published on social networks, Mahsa Amini had traveled from the western Iranian province of Kurdistan to Tehran to meet relatives when she was arrested on September 13.

Eyewitnesses at the scene told journalists that Amini appeared to have been beaten inside the morality police van while being taken to the detention center, though she was conscious.

A few hours after her arrest, her family was informed that Amini had been hospitalized.

The media center of the Tehran Police Department denied the eyewitness claims of beating Amini, saying she was transferred to one of the police departments in Tehran for “justification and education” about the hijab when she “suddenly suffered a heart problem.”

Kiarash Amini, Mahsa’s brother, said in an interview with the Iranwire news website that doctors told him they had diagnosed Mahsa as having had either a heart attack or a stroke, “and that while her heart was still beating, her brain is no longer conscious.”…

Puran Nazimi, a human rights activist, challenged Iranian authorities to release security camera footage to prove they didn’t beat Amini….
