Mahsa Amini’s nationwide protests in Iran have reached 100 days, being described as a revolution against a tyrant regime.

The protests in Iran unfolded after the moral police of Iran, known as, Gasht-e-Ershad (Guidance Patrol), arrested a young girl named “Mahsa Amini” some hundred days ago for what was called veiling.

Mahsa Amini along with her family had come from Saqqez to spend some time in Tehran. It was reported that Mahsa was beaten by Iran’s moral forces and taken to the hospital. A few days later she died in the hospital. According to Iran’s independent media, the country’s moral police severely beat Mahsa and smashed her head against the wall.

Following the death of Mahsa Amini, waves of protests were formed in Tehran and Saqqez, her hometown. Very soon these protests spread throughout Iran. Women were the driving force behind these demonstrations who chanted “Women, Life, Freedom” reflecting their wishes.

Subsequently, widespread protests were also held outside Iran, where the world’s renowned figures chanted the same slogan “Women, Life, Freedom” as a sign of solidarity with the people of Iran, the women in particular. The Iranian people’s ongoing resistance against an authoritarian regime has met massive admiration from the Western world.

Following the widespread protests, and the system’s inability to manage the uprising, the ruling regime has closed the country’s Moral Police Center.

As of now, more than 500 people including men, women, and children have been killed by the forces of the Islamic regime of Iran. Additionally, the Iranian government has started executing protesters accompanied by the anger of the protesters and prompting worldwide condemnations.  

Afghan women were among the first to empathize with Iranian women in the ongoing uprising outside of Iran. However, with the recent gender-based restrictions imposed by Afghanistan’s Taliban regime, Afghan women and girls have been completely erased from public life, having no access to education or employment.
