For his part, the clerk has received a “reprimand” for allowing the presence of unveiled women in his establishmentmandatory garment in the country since 1983.

The incident occurred amid heightened tensions in Iran following protests sparked by the death in September Mahsa Amini after being arrested for not wearing the hijab correctly, in a riot calling for the end of the Islamic Republic

The protests have all but died down after a strong state repression that has caused nearly 500 deaths and in which four protesters have been hangedone of them in public.

But many women have stopped wearing the veil in the streets of the Islamic country, in a form of protest and disobedience.

Given the continuous female gestures of civil disobedience, more and more conservative voices are calling for the laws that impose this garment to be applied.

The Interior Ministry this week described the headscarf “as one of the pillars of the civilization of the Iranian nation,” one of “the principles of the Islamic Republic” and “a religious necessity.” Iranian media has reported that the Iranian authorities are preparing a new law to re-impose the wearing of the headscarf that could carry penalties of up to $6,000.

Iran lives under an ultra-conservative theocratic regime, in which many freedoms are suppressed and the cost of rebelling can be punished with human rights abuses.

In this regard, the Government of Canada recently announced the imposition of the tenth package of sanctionsthis time against eight individuals and two entities, for their alleged responsibility in the violation of Human Rights in Iran.

Canadian Foreign Minister Mélanie Joly noted that this package is because “the Iranians are demanding a better future.” “They are fighting to protect their Human Rights so that their children -and future generations- can live in peace and prosperity”he added.

“We call on the Iranian regime to end its brutal oppression of the people of Iran and meet their demands in good faith. It is time to end the cycle of violence and forge a new path based on peace, security and stability for the Iranian people,” he stated.

These sanctions include senior members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and security forces for “serious and systematic violations of Human Rights in Tehran and in the Kurdish and Azeri areas of northwestern Iran.”

The package also sanctions senior officials involved in the production of unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) and ballistic missiles, which are alleged to be used in the Ukraine war by Russian troops to attack civilian infrastructure.

The Iranian regime state television issued an apology after broadcasting footage of a couple sharing a brief kiss, local media said this Friday. In a broadcast on Thursday, the entertainment channel Nasim It showed a young couple kissing briefly in a park as they walked past a hidden camera recording a prank show.
