These symbolic protests are being held everywhere as a form of protest against the Iranian Government’s law to force women over the age of 7 to wear a Hijab.

Editorial viewpoint

Even though Iran is an Islamic country, its Muslim women are opposing the compulsory hijab. Whereas Muslim women in India which is not even an Islamic country, are insisting on wearing the hijab !
