For some months, the anti-hijab agitation has been going on in Iran. Some of these protestants had demanded not to send Iranian team for this tournament. The team initially refused to sing Iran’s national anthem before their first game in an apparent show of solidarity with demonstrators but the Iranian citizens were upset as they sang the national anthem before the 2nd match. Now as the team is defeated, the citizens are expressing their joy.

Editorial viewpoint

This reveals how much the Iranians are against hijab ! Will the staunch hijab supporters in India speak about this ?
