A recent incident in Iran has sparked outrage among human rights activists, as a teenage girl was hospitalized after being attacked by the notorious Iranian Morality Police.
The girl, whose identity has not been released, was walking with friends in the central city of Isfahan when she was stopped by officers from the Morality Police. They reportedly physically assaulted her after she refused to cooperate with them. She was later brought to a nearby hospital and transferred to a different medical facility in Isfahan for further treatment due to the severity of her injuries.
The event has sparked outrage among Iranian activists, who have called for an investigation into the assault and immediate accountability for the perpetrators. Activists have also accused the Morality Police of targeting young women, who are often made to feel unsafe in public spaces due to their gender.
This is not the first time that the Morality Police have been involved in an incident involving violence against women. Similar incidents have happened in the past, and many Iranian women have noted the oppressive atmosphere that is created by their presence.
The assault on the teenage girl is yet another example of the oppressive and unjust environment for female citizens of Iran. Activists and human rights organizations have been pushing for the dismantling of the Morality Police, as its activities have been noted to elongate oppression against female citizens in the country.
