A woman in Iran has refused to follow mandatory hijab rules. On this, 74 lashes were given as per the order of the court of the Islamic Republic. The victim has been identified as Roya Heshmati. This harsh punishment highlights the provisions of punishment for opposing the dress code implemented in the Islamic state.

According to media reports, Roya Heshmati, a vocal critic of mandatory hijab, entered the courtroom without a hijab and claimed her right to be flogged without covering herself. Despite warnings from authorities to open a new case against her for not wearing the hijab, she stood firm and endured the flogging.

Heshmati has shared chilling details of the flogging room. He compared it to a medieval torture chamber with cement walls, a small bed and iron shackles. This vivid description is a glimpse of the inhumane environment in which such punishments are carried out.

Pictures posted on social media show that the victim's back is completely injured due to being whipped. Despite being injured, she has shared her pictures without hijab on social media.

condemnation of flogging

Let us tell you that the international community has strongly condemned the use of humiliating punishments like flogging by Iran. This goes against the principles outlined in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, but such medieval practices persist and are being continuously enforced in Iran.

A similar case has come to light in Iran. In a separate case, Zeynab (Bahar) Khonyabpur, an opponent of mandatory hijab from Behbahan in Ahwaz province, received a two-year prison sentence for sharing photos without hijab on social media.
