Arman Emrooz Newspaper:

1- People’s demand: Serious reconsideration of the moral security police’s conduct

2- Goodbye, the loved one

. The death of 22-year-old girl Mehsa Amini after a cardiac arrest during the briefing session of the moral security police has reopened an old wound in Iran. The wound has been a problem for years thanks to cameras of people that are always on and also due to misbehavior of some untrained police forces regarding the issue of hijab. This is a purely cultural matter but it has caused the system to pay dearly more than ever for mishandling of issues by some people with no training in psychology and in dealing with people who they think have “improper hijab” or “violate norms”.
