“Iran Too Is Going The Taliban Way”: Harmony Foundation On Iran Unrest


“Hence the UN Human Rights Commission should take cognisance of this matter and castigate the fundamentalist regime in Iran with very unsparing words”, the statement added.

The Harmony Foundation has condemned the death of Mahsa Amini in a statement issued on Friday.

“The demonstrations in Iran that has led to 17 deaths so far are terrifying with aghast images of protestors burning their hijabs and cutting their hair short in protests over the death of Mahsa Amini. Such cruel death by the so-called moral police cannot be justified under any circumstances whatsoever”, the statement said.

“Hence the UN Human Rights Commission should take cognisance of this matter and castigate the fundamentalist regime in Iran with very unsparing words”, the statement added.

The statement further said, “The burning of the hijabs by the protestors is indicative of the anger which has been simmering within to which the cruel death of Ms. Amini became the powder keg igniting the furore which has engulfed Iran lately”.

“Such a demonstration by women clearly shows that the donning of the hijab was not voluntary but was imposed and done under radical religious compulsion, the statement read.

Speaking about women chopping their hair and displaying their protest, the statement said, The cutting of hair is also a manifestation of the anger and frustration that has accumulated over the years which is now being vented out through these public protests and demonstrations.”

“This unjustified and cruel act of brutality resulting in the death of Ms. Amini should not be left unchecked, especially in societies where the issue of hijab has become sensitive. The atrocious, barbaric, and
abominable rule that the so-called morality police have exhibited in light of Mahsa Amini’s death over the oppressive hijab rules for women sheds light on the undeniable fact that this despicable rule in suppressing
women is like the radical Taliban in Afghanistan who have repressed and enslaved women for centuries under the garb of so-called cultural and moral codes. Is this oppressive morality police the new nefarious Taliban in Iran? “, the statement said.

“The draconian act of Iranian regime resulting in the cruel death of Mahsa Amini and the subsequent 17 deaths is comparable to the anarchic rule of the Taliban in Afghanistan which is oppressive of women folk. It is shameful that Iran stands on the same scale with the archaic and barbaric murderous regime of Afghanistan which is typical of upholding old, outdated and obsolete ways of thinking totally not in conformity with the modern times..”, the statement issued by Dr.Abraham Mathai
Chairman-Harmony Foundation added.

Dr.Abraham Mathai concluded his statement with a suggestion to the UN Human Rights Commission, “To ensure that there’s no repeat of such inhumane incidents, the UN Human Rights Commission should make it incumbent upon Iran to disband the so-called moral police forthwith and also ensure that no Muslim women is forced to wear a hijab anywhere in the world to ensure fundamental human rights”.
