Demonstrations grow in Iran: Scandal analogy

The popular movement in Iran, which started with the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini after being detained by the morality police, is growing… Iran’s Revolutionary Guards showed the perspective of the Tehran administration by making an analogy with the demonstrators.

While the demonstrations that started after a woman lost her life during the detention of the morality police in Iran, are entering their sixth day, the death toll in street clashes continues to increase.

In Iran, 22-year-old Mahsa Amini died in a coma after being arrested by morality police in Tehran last week. After the death, protests started across the country, including the capital Tehran.

While the demonstrations were 6 days behind, non-governmental organizations announced that at least 31 people lost their lives.

Demonstrators held a demonstration in Tehran yesterday.

Amini’s father, on the other hand, said that his daughter, who lost her life, did not have any health problems and that her daughter had bruises on her legs during detention and that she blamed the police for her daughter’s death. Morality police claimed that they did not mistreat the young girl.

Violent demonstrations spread across the country after the funeral of the young girl who died in custody on Saturday.

While Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, did not make a statement about the most violent actions in Iranian history since the street clashes due to water shortage last year, Khamenei’s chief adviser expressed his condolences to Amini’s family this week, expressing the supreme leader’s influence and sadness. He stated that he heard about it and that they would follow up on this event.

The official IRNA news agency reported that a “police assistant” died yesterday in the southern city of Shiraz from his injuries.

In the Kermanshah region, two people died in clashes that broke out yesterday, according to the city prosecutor’s statement.

In demonstrations across the country, mostly women, demonstrators waved their headscarves in the air, burned them and cut their hair.

A video showed hundreds of demonstrators at Tehran University chanting “death to the dictator”, but Reuters news agency has yet to confirm the accuracy of the video.

The incident in Iran drew reaction in Turkey as well. A demonstrator had cut her hair to draw attention to the murdered young woman.

LIKE ISIS

While these developments were taking place in the country, a very harsh statement came from the Iranian Revolutionary Guards. In the statement made by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, it was stated that the demonstrations were carried out by the conspirators and that elements both inside and outside the country were behind these demonstrations.

“The history of the Islamic State of Iran is full of domestic opportunists acting together with foreign enemies. “These enemies have taken every opportunity to attack Iran,” the statement said. The Iranian Revolutionary Guards also commented on the demonstrators as “like ISIS” and said, “There are false and biased allegations about the death of the woman and a psychological operation is being carried out on the Iranian people.”

In a statement made by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, the Iranian people were also thanked for their support and expressed condolences to Amini’s family and relatives.

SUPPORT MESSAGE FROM WHATSAPP

With the increase in the demonstrations, internet cut and social media access restrictions came in the country, while a remarkable announcement came from the US-based messaging application WhatsApp.

WhatsApp, a subsidiary of US-based Meta together with Facebook and Instagram, said, “We continue our efforts to connect users in Iran with the world. We are trying to figure out the technical capability we can to provide access to social platforms.” The company also denied allegations that it blocked phone numbers in Iran.
