Iranian women risk 10 yr jail if they post videos without hijab

Iranian women could land in jail if they post video footage removing their headscarves in public. Iranian officials have warned that violation could lead to up 10 years imprisonment.

As reported by the Telegraph, the announcement specifically named the US-based social media platform of Masih Alinejad, which since 2014 has been inviting Iranian women to post pictures of themselves without the hijab.

The Iranian regime has accused Ms Alinejad of working as an agent of the US government over the website, known as My Stealthy Freedom. 

Earlier this year US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo thanked Ms Alinejad for her bravery and continued dedication to the cause of freedom for Iranian women.

Reacting to the announcement made by Iran, Alinejad tweeted: “Today, head of the revolutionary court in Iran reported that women who send me videos risk 1 to 10 years of jail. My Response: regime isn’t scared of me. They’re scared of people & their demands. I’ll keep relaying the voices of people as long as I keep receiving videos”

She claimed that she is receiving more videos. Because women cannot be censored.
