As has been previously reported at Jihad Watch, in Tehran several days ago, the Morality Police (Gasht e-Ershad) arrested a 22-year-old woman, Mahsa Amini, outside a metro station. Her hijab, in their view, had not been properly affixed. Eyewitnesses saw her being shoved into a van and being beaten, before the van drove off. Sometime shortly after, she fell into a coma, and three days later, the formerly healthy young woman was dead. A leading Iranian lawyer says that her death was the result of a blow to the back of the head. The Iranian government denies this, and claims that it will “investigate” the incident. Meanwhile, tens of thousands of Iranians have taken to the streets of Tehran and cities in Kurdistan (Mahsa Amini was a Kurd from the city of Saqez), where over several days they have been shouting not only “justice for Amini” and “death to those who killed our sister,” but something far more dangerous for the regime: “Death to the Dictator!” There have also been denunciations of the Iranian regime on social media, where the hashtag about Mahsa Amini has now appeared 1.6 million times.
A report on this latest savagery by the Morality Police, and the outrage that has erupted against not only them, but against the Supreme Leader , can be found here: “Anger swells as Iranian woman dies after arrest by notorious morality police,” by Stuart Williams, Times of Israel, September 17, 2022:
A young Iranian woman who fell into a coma after being arrested in Tehran by the notorious morality police died on Friday, state media and her family said, with activists urging those responsible for her “suspicious” death to be brought to justice.
Mahsa Amini, 22, was on a visit with her family to the Iranian capital when she was detained on Tuesday by the police unit responsible for enforcing the Islamic Republic’s strict dress code for women, which includes the compulsory wearing of the headscarf in public.
Amini was, according to reports, wearing the hijab, but she had not, in the view of the morality police who arrested her, affixed it properly. So they detained her outside a metro station in Tehran, and shoved her into a van, where eyewitnesses say the morality police began to beat her. She fell into a coma, and three days later she was dead.
“Unfortunately, she died and her body was transferred to the medical examiner’s office,” Iranian state television reported.
Persian-language media, including the Iran Wire website and the Shargh newspaper, have quoted her family as saying that the previously healthy Amini had been rushed to hospital in a coma a few hours after her arrest and had now died.
It is not yet clear what happened between her arrival at the police station and her departure for the hospital. The 1500tavsir channel, which monitors violations in Iran, said she had suffered a blow to the head.
We now know that sometime after her beating — which may have continued in the police station — she then fell into a coma, and died three days later.
Images posted on social media showed crowds gathering outside the hospital where she was being treated and police trying to disperse the dozens who had gathered.
People were also shown angrily shouting anti-regime slogans later in the evening in Tehran.
“The circumstances leading to the suspicious death in custody of 22-year-old young woman Mahsa Amini, which include allegations of torture and other ill-treatment in custody, must be criminally investigated,” Amnesty International said.
The so-called ‘morality police’ in Tehran arbitrarily arrested her three days before her death while enforcing the country’s abusive, degrading and discriminatory forced veiling laws,” it added.
There are contradictory stories as to when Mahsa Amini died. Some say it was within a few hours of being taken into custody, while others claim she fell into a coma on Tuesday and died in a hospital three days later. But what is not in dispute is that she was in perfect health when seized by the morality police and died because of something that was done to her when in their custody. Whether she died after three hours, or after three days, doesn’t matter – she was murdered by the morality police.
US President Joe Biden’s national security advisor, Jake Sullivan, denounced her death.
“We are deeply concerned by the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, who was reportedly beaten in custody by Iran’s morality police,” he tweeted Friday.
“Her death is unforgivable. We will continue to hold Iranian officials accountable for such human rights abuses.”
Also on Twitter, prominent Iranian lawyer Saeed Dehghan described Amini’s death as a “murder,” saying she had suffered a blow to the head which had caused the base of her skull to fracture.’’
Saeed Dehghan has no reason to lie; one can well imagine the morality police becoming enraged with this woman who apparently put up resistance to their manhandling her; the Gashd e-Ershad are unused to women fighting back; Mahsa Amini came from Iranian Kurdistan, where dress codes are not enforced as they are in Tehran. According to the lawyer Saeed Delghan, a member of the morality police struck her on the back of her head; that strike proved fatal. The Tehran police first put out a story that she had had no physical contact with the morality police who had detained her; this story, contradicted by eyewitnesses, was met with widespread anger, and street protests, in Tehran and Iranian Kurdish cities, protests that have continued for almost a week after she was first detained.
State television broadcast images on Friday purportedly showed her falling to the ground inside a large hall full of women while arguing with one of the female instructors about her dress.
Such a scene can, of course, have been staged by the police, with a carefully covered stand-in, viewed from the back, for Mahsa Amini. Too many eyewitnesses saw her being beaten once she had been forced into the van. And the distinguished lawyer Saeed Delghan would never have made such a damning charge – that Mahsa Amini had been hit on the back of the head – were he not absolutely certain of its truth. He has too much to lose, at the very least, his livelihood, were he to have made a false accusation.
In a statement on Friday, Tehran police insisted “there was no physical encounter” between officers and Amini.
It said Amini was among a number of women who were taken to a police station for “instruction” on the dress code on Tuesday.
“She suddenly fainted while with other visitors in the hall,” the statement said.…
Most implausible. Remember, there are eyewitnesses who have said that they saw Mahsa Amini being forced into the van by the morality police who, they claim, started to beat her just as soon as she was shoved into the back of the vehicle. They would not dare to lie about such a matter; that could mean years in prison.
The regime has been frightened by the size and virulence of the crowds protesting Amini’s death, particularly in the Kurdish cities. Amini was a Kurd, and the Kurds of Iran have long felt persecuted by the Persian state. To quiet things down, President Raisi has ordered an investigation that, one can be certain, will confirm the police version, according to which Amini simply “fell down,”and then went into a coma, and eventually died, without the police playing any role in her death. A heart attack, a stroke, a brain aneurysm? How likely are any of those to have befallen a healthy 22-year-old woman?
The head of the New York-based Center for Human Rights in Iran, Hadi Ghaemi, described her death as a “preventable tragedy.”…
Her death was “preventable” — if only the monstrous Morality Police had not been roaming the streets looking for women to chastise and detain, and coming upon Amini, decided that her hijab was not affixed in an Islamically acceptable manner. Whether the blow that ultimately killed her was delivered by the morality police who first detained her, or the regular police to whom she was turned over, is not known. But one or the other was responsible for what should never have been: a murderous attack on a helpless woman who threatened no one.
In July, a video of a woman standing in front of one of the force’s vans, pleading for her daughter’s release, went viral on social media.
The veiled woman kept holding on to the van as it pulled off, only being thrown clear after it gathered speed.
Also in July, a young Iranian woman, Sepideh Rashno, disappeared after becoming involved in a dispute on a Tehran bus with another woman who accused her of removing her headscarf.
She was held by the Revolutionary Guards and appeared on television in what activists said was a forced confession before being released on bail in late August.
Two examples from July of the headscarf crackdown, that were posted on social media, and have prompted widespread rage over the Gasht e-Ershad enforcement of the hijab requirement: first, the mother vainly clinging to the van of the morality police as it sped away, taking her daughter away, to be punished for not wearing the hijab; second, the woman who was forced to make a mea-maxima-culpa confession on television about her wickedness in not wearing a hijab.
Activists accuse Iran of being in the throes of a major crackdown that is affecting all areas of society, including a new push against the Bahai religious minority, death sentences for gays, a surge in executions and arrests of foreign nationals.
The death of Mahsa Amini has struck a chord in the Iranian public, because it is already enduring a crackdown by the regime on other targets of its malevolence. These include the Baha’is, who are now being persecuted and imprisoned with unusual ferocity, simply for being Baha’is; homosexuals, subject to public executions by being hung from cranes; those accused of such islamic crimes as “blasphemy” and “apostasy,” and foreign nationals who are arrested and expelled on the flimsiest evidence of “anti-Islamic behavior.”
Meanwhile, those cries of “Death to the Dictator” have not stopped, and the Supreme Leader must be puzzled as to how to handle such a challenge to his rule. Should he answer that demand with a hard fist, to smash the protestors, to arrest and sentence them all to prison? Or should he choose the “iron fist in a velvet glove,” to “softly” suppress those protesters, rounding up only a handful of the ringleaders, and meting out to them light jail sentences of one to two years and leaving the rest alone? Or what about dealing with those protestors without any fist at all, but instead demonstrating the regime’s willingness to punish those in the morality police who murdered Mahsa Amini? Such unwonted good sense might just work.
Patriotic American says
This is an opportunity for the Iranian people to take down the Supreme Leader and the IRGC once and for all. They have been under Sharia for far too long. It needs to end, but unfortunately they probably won’t get any help from the United States.
Mo de Profit says
The same Iranian people were protesting whilst wearing government propaganda inspired masks and burkas, they will turn up at their gender segregated mosques and donate 10% of their income to it.
Walter Sieruk says
It’s highly unlikely that any of those brave Iranians protesters who are rightly now strongly and courageously opposed to the continued tyranny of that brutal cruel and murderous Islamic regime of that is now in power, and hopefully shaky power, in Iran are aware of the wise Latin saying “Nil carborundum illegitimi ” meaning “Don’t let the bastards grind you down” but those Iranian people are going by the spirit of that old saying by their righteous rebellion against that horrific regime
For those wicked tyrants of that bloody deadly regime really are bastards as Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi and Ayatollah Ali Khamenei along the other ayatollahs and mullahs as well as their Islamic state “police.”
For those bastards ‘morality police” viciously and maliciously beat that helpless defenseless young, woman Mahso Amini to death for a slight infringement of Sharia regarding the proper wearing of her hijab was an horrendous action of evil by them ,therefore they are most despicable malice-filled Muslim villains.
That kind of misogynist murderous evil has occurred before by the Islamic bands of those thugs who “police”
As one example of a teenage girl had been murdered by them in cold blood because they didn’t like her clothing. That specific incited was exposed by a former Revolutionary guard member Reza Kahlili , now living in America in his book A TIME TO BETRAY on page 240.
Furthermore the trapped in and forced to exist in the Islamic dictatorship might not know about the intellect philosopher John Locke , but his ideas do apply to them. For Mr. Locke taught that any good government has the duty to ensure the security and safety of its citizens. Yet when a tyranny is the people in the tyrannical government do have every natural and ethical right to overthrow that terrible and oppressive tyranny/ government.
Walter Sieruk says
The women of Iran should protest that forced hijab wearing . For that hideous garment is a symbol male Muslim Islamic misogyny and oppression.
For those women trapped the that brutal deadly malicious mysyginstic Islam regime of Iran do have every ethical and human right to throw off hideous hijabs . For that garment in alone a symbol of that Islamic tyranny with it’s callous and dehumanizing oppression of both girls and women.
Those vicious and oppressive Islamic “morality police” of Iran even go so far as to even raise a terrible horrendous brutal fuss of a little bit of hair showing on a woman’s head not only proves true the old saying that “Evil is always looking for an excuse.” But this also further exposes the malicious and oppressive misogyny of Islam and of that Islamic tyranny of Iran.
For that vicious and cruel “mullah regime” of Iran is brutal and cruel violator of human rights. Especially regarding the human rights of girls and woman.
For example, to imprison women for not wearing the hijab is but one part of the anti-female tyranny of this tyrannical “mullah regime” of Iran.
That ruthless cruel brutal heinous Islamic regime of Iran that is so unfittingly has the word “Republic” in its title, for it’s called “The Islamic Republic of Iran” [ I R I].
That brutal cruel Islamic tyrannical regime of Iran is full of ruthless malicious misogyny.
On the topic of this Islamic tyranny of Iran a former Muslim revealed that “The IRI system recognizes women as dependent upon men and incomplete human beings who need to be supervised and controlled by men and the State. This author further exposed that “Women are created for the purposes of giving pleasure to men and childbearing – functions that confine them to the home” This is a male Chauvinistic as can possibly be.
In addition, this writer further makes it known that “The IRI legal system still retains traditional patriarchal bias that can be described as nothing but systemic subordination of women, which is undoubtedly a human rights violation.”
This author further reveals that “Iran is of what Islamic fundamentalists desire, an Islamic State, and the consequence of achieving it “State Terror. Instead of utopia, Iran is an Islamic totalitarian nightmare…” and “the Islamic Republic of Iran exists and operates as what every Islamic fundamentalist dream of, an Islamic state ruled by Sharia …What followed its establishment was the inevitable consequence and inexorable logic of its Islamic premises; state terrorism, a merciless tyranny.” 
This heinous Islamic has been also exposed by another author who was born and lived in a Middle Eastern nation for many years. She wrote “Female freedom and independence is one of the greatest sins in Islam…” and “Women in Islam are considered unclean, deemed inferior even to dirt.” 
All this is wicked, unjust and misogynistic to the extreme. Islam had not regard for human life, regardless of what the apologists for this religion will claim.

 THEY MUST BE STOPPED by Brigitte Gabriel pages 62, 172
Walter Sieruk says
The many people who have been murdered the power of that Islamic regime by the Islamic “police” in their protest against the vicious torture and then murder of a young defenseless helpless woman ,Mahso Anini,,by the so called “morality police” of that brutal and oppressive tyrannical regime of Iran.
Still all that horrendous evil should be of no surprise to anyone knowledgeable the cruel and murderous history of Islamic tyranny of Iran ,since its very beginning with It’s Islamic revolution in 1979.
From that year on it has been nothing but oppressing and death. It’s not going to stop now but continue with its bloody death inflecting and especially since wickedness. Especially since fiend Ebrahim Raisi because that regime’s President.
Even before Rasis this latest murderous in Iran’s President Rasis he has been justifiably accused of being guilty of “crimes against humanity.”
The under the Islamic tyranny of the President of Iran Rasis, would by his callous Sharia law centered mentally be so vicious and murderous to have, this very year from January to March, have more than one hundred people put to death.
That despicable cruel and deadly character Rasis is in reality an inflictor of horrendous injustice. So much so that he has also been, rightly called the “hangman of Iran” which is a very fitting title for him.
For during the 1980’s he was the chief of that Islamic regimes” Death Committee” which was responsible for the murder of many people.
That tyrant of Iran , Rasis , is such a ruthless oppressive deadly fiend of a monster the people of trapped in his Islamic tyranny live in fear because of him and other high ranking human rights violating Muslims villains in the Islamic regime.
Benjamin Franklin had explained about such awful dictators when he had printed in his periodical entitled POOR RICHARD’S ALMANAC which reads”Those who are feared are also hated.”
Walter Sieruk says
The vicious murder of Mahso Amini ,of which the misogyny filled Islamic tyranny of Iran is completely responsible for and totally guilty of is a strong reflection of the tyrannical controlling deadly and anti-female religion of Islam.
As revealed by a scholar of Islam who revealed in her book “Control of behavior and disregard for human life are key elements in Islam ideology.” Furthermore, the author also exposed that `” Women is Islam are considered unclean, deemed inferior even to dirt.” 
 THEY MUST BE STOPPED by Brigitte Gabriel, pages 171,171.
Walter Sieruk says
The horrendous evils linked to the horrible hijab has no limits, even to the point of cold blooded action of deliberate murder. This proves that “Evil is always looking for an excuse.”.
For example, that heinously cruel and murderous Islamic tyranny of Iran is very brutal and vicious to the Iranian people. Especially regarding females. Both girls and women. For example, a teenage girl in Iran was talking to her boyfriend on the phone and then the Islamic state “police” walked over to her and shot her dead. They did that wicked and malicious thing to her because she was talking to her boyfriend, and they also didn’t like her clothing. 
That was a clear-cut case of murder and vicious Islamic madness by Iran’s Islamic state “police”, who call themselves the “Revolutionary Guards”, they got away with their hideous and malice –filled evil because the mullahs as well as other villains in power in that tyrannical Islamic regime.
 A TIME TO BETRAY by Reza Kahlili page 240
Walter Sieruk says
There is an old Latin saying that the Iranian people need to heed regarding those wicked oppressive tyrants that they exist under. That saying is ‘nil carborundum illegitimi” Which means “Don’t let the bastards grind you down.”
For Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi and Ayatollah Ali Khamenei along with the other ayatollahs and mullahs who al have such terrible influence in Iran’s parliament are all indeed, bastards . Meaning they are all ,as it’s been termed “Bastards of the Devil.”
For such dictators who viciously oppress the people are a reflection of the Bible’s book of Ecclesiastes which in 4:1 reads ” I saw the oppressed – and they have no comforter : power was on the side of their oppressors.” [N.I.V.]
Likewise, in Proverbs 15:15 reads “All the days of the oppressed are wretched.”
David Ray says
This gives that poor girl something in common with the women attacked by D.C. cops on Jan 6th. Ashley was shot by a Trump-hating (and incompetent) cop. Boyland was beaten to death. Other women were beaten but survived.
Patriots rotting in the DC gulag have been beaten off camera for singing the national anthem. When not abused, they have to contend with horrid conditions normally found in 3rd world banana republics.
We were lied to and told (for months) that salivating Trump supporters bludgeoned officer Sicknick to death. (A huge lie that tipped the hand of their agenda/set-up.)
Funny how all that that never inflamed Liz Cheney, but the bitch already made her mind up . . . facts be damned.
Don’t be duped!
The Sunni loving Luciferian Globalists want Russia and Iran in turmoil…
Russia supports Shiite Iran… and Iran is promoted in the news as the Bad Guy…
Think about it… if a woman disobeyed the laws in Saudi Barbaria… she’d be buried in the ground up to her neck with her head exposed… and stoned to death…
Where’s the outcry for the way Saudi Barbaria handles women!?!?!? <<< There isn't any!!!
Because the Sunni loving Luciferian Globalists love Saudi Barbaria… AKA… Sowdi Barbaria…
