The website Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA) wrote on July 12 that Mohammadi “was arrested by NAJA (Law Enforcement Force of the Islamic Republic of Iran) on July 9, 2019. She was arrested after a woman, Mousavi, harassed her because of her dress code and injured Mohammadi’s face. Mohammadi went to a police station to file a complaint against that woman but she was arrested instead.”
The woman, wearing the strict, full-body chador cloak, said that Mousavi assaulted Mohammadi, who was sitting on a bus, and demanded that she properly wear her headscarf. According to HRANA, "Mousavi attacked Mohammadi, pushed her chest with her hand and beat her face until her nails were covered in blood.”
The bus driver stopped the vehicle and the women went to a local police station where Mohammadi filed a formal complaint against Mousavi. But instead of arresting Mousavi, the police detained Mohammadi; she was released on bail on July 10.
According to HRANA, Mousavi defended her assault by stating that she is “enjoining good and forbidding wrong.”
Alireza Nader, the CEO of New Iran, a research and advocacy organization based in Washington, told The Jerusalem Post that “the regime has been encouraging regular citizens to confront women not complying with the compulsory hijab.”
The Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps – a US-designated terrorist organization – has been pushing a video in Iran promoting the Islamic chador.
