The Problem in Iran


Mahasa Amini

On September 16, 2022 22-year old Mahasa Amini mysteriously passed away at a hospital in Tehran, Iran. It is believed that it was because of the government in Iran. She was actually under police custody for not wearing a hijab properly according to government standards. Now, women in Iran are protesting by burning their hijabs in the streets of cities across Iran. Iran is restricting internet. I personally have a couple of things to say. First off, I respect culture and religion, but arresting someone for not wearing it properly is way too far. Then again, Iran is not the type of country to warn you of these things. Secondly, I agree with the protests of women (and men, for that matter) across the world (mainly Iran) by burning their hijabs. I will leave a link to more information.

Well, yeah; the Iranian government isn't exactly known for their liberty and transparency.

A person from that area wrote a text about the subject (in Swiss media). It was sort of an appeal and a warning. It was telling European decision makers that, if they don't take a clear stand (against the theocratic govt of Iran and similar issues leaking to EU), they'll soon have a new Iran in Europe. Some countries were mentioned as being in greatest danger due to extremists allowed in: Sweden, France, Italy and I forget the fourth (maybe UK or Belgium?).

Essentially, it referred to things like being overly naïve, allowing extremists and wahhabis in, to preach hate freely, to allow the extremists to build "no-go zones" and terrorize, among others, the not-extreme Muslims who live there.

The writer also demanded that everyone should be allowed to criticize evil things done by the extremists without being labelled with the "hate speech/racism" defense by the extremists and their European allies (imprisoned by their own dogma and cognitive dissonance).
