About the protest

With the ease of internet curbs for Iranians, the United States will also be benefitting from this decision. It will help American tech firms to expand their business in Iran.

President Ebrahim Raisi spoke at a pro-government event, saying he would not allow the country’s security to be “threatened”.”We will not allow people’s security to be put at risk under any circumstances,” he said, shortly after returning from the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

The police claim that she died of a heart attack but eyewitnesses claim that she was beaten against the police vehicle due to which she might have suffered a stroke that eventually led to her death. Her death sparked protests in Iran against the moral policing of women done by the government. As mentioned above, women are burning their hijabs in order to protest against the government’s unwanted regulations. The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights on Thursday said UN experts strongly condemned the use of physical violence against women in Iran by state authorities.“Iranian authorities said (Amini) died of a heart attack, and claimed her death was from natural causes. However, some reports suggested that Amini’s death was a result of alleged torture and ill-treatment,” it said in a statement.“We call on the Iranian authorities to hold an independent, impartial, and prompt investigation into Ms. Amini’s death, make the findings of the investigation public, and hold all perpetrators accountable,” it added.
