Demonstrations continue after the death of a 22-year-old woman, Mahsa Amini, in the custody of Iran’s Morality Police.

The demonstrations began about a month ago when Mahsa, a Kurdish woman, was detained by the ‘morality police’ for alleged violation of the stringent hijab law where she slipped into a coma. Mahsa’s family alleges that she was beaten up. The police denies these allegations.

According to a human rights organization, at least 201 people have died in the action of security forces so far.

In these demonstrations, women, school girls are registering a protest by removing their hijab, showing hair, setting the hijab on fire. Women all over the world have supported these demonstrations by cutting their hair. Actor Priyanka Chopra posted an Instagram in support of the demonstrations.
