Iran Protest Video : Iran Protesters Burnt Biggest Photo Of Iran Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei

Tehran : Protesters clashed with security forces across Iran on Friday morning following the death of a young woman in police custody. State television said the death toll in the violence could be as high as 26. Meanwhile, a video emerged from Tehran in which protesters were seen setting fire to a giant picture of Iran’s Supreme Leader. The women of the country have taken to the streets against the Islamic dress code. The level of protest in many Iranian cities and towns is unclear. The movement reflects widespread unrest after the 2019 agitation.

A video from the protest site showed several masked protesters raising slogans. A giant screen behind them can be seen in flames. Iran has also blocked access to the Internet, according to Internet watcher Netblox. Popular social media platforms like Instagram and WhatsApp, used for organizing rallies, have also been banned. State television said late Thursday that 26 protesters and policemen have been killed since last Saturday’s protests following the funeral of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini.

Fire in Khamenei’s photo
Videos of demonstrations and arson are being shared on social media. Protesters are said to have set ablaze the biggest picture of Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The current violence in Iran began after the death of a young woman from the northwestern Kurdish city of Amini, who was arrested last week in Tehran by the country’s ethics police for violating a strict dress code.

Women burn hijabs on the streets
His death has been strongly condemned by Western countries and the United Nations, and the incident has sparked outrage across the country. The video shows Amini wearing a long black gown (abaya) and a government-mandated Islamic hijab at the time of her arrest. Following the incident, a large number of women took to the streets to protest against the hijab and videos of many women burning the hijab amid slogans of ‘freedom’ have surfaced.

Protesters are raising slogans – death to the dictator
Some are calling for an end to the influence of Islamic religious leaders on the regime. The protesters are seen shouting slogans like ‘Tanashah ko death’ and ‘Mullaon ko jaana hoga’. In at least 13 cities from the capital Tehran to Amini’s Kurdish hometown of Sakez, thousands of Iranians have taken to the streets, accusing them of social and political repression. Videos on social media show protesters setting a police vehicle on fire and clashing with officers in Tehran.
