Tehran students protest tightened dress code restrictions

A large group of students held a demonstration at their Tehran university against tightened measures by morality guards to force students to comply with hijab regulations, reports Iran International.

Students of the Iran University of Science and Technology held a gathering and a march at their campus to protest the atmosphere of fear, intimidation and interference of morality guards to force them to comply with Islamic dress and other codes. The rally took place four days after a member of the Islamic Association of the university was beaten while distributing a statement against the newly enforced measures by morality guards and supervisors at the women’s dormitories.

Iran International reported on Friday 22 April that some universities in the capital Tehran have tightened dress code restrictions as the students have started to attend in person after over two years of virtual classes due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In an unprecedented move, morality guards of the University of Science and Technology and Amirkabir University of Technology began motorcycle patrols to force students to comply with hijab and other Islamic regulations.
