Fear prevails in the streets of Tehran in the face of the new campaign to reimpose the veil

Tehran, Iran —I don’t want to talk about the veil. I’m afraid”says a young woman in the center of Tehran accompanied by two friends. The young women are dressed in a modern way and covered with a hijab half. A white van is parked not far from them. It’s a patrol call Morality Police. And it causes terror among women.

Fear has prevailed in the streets of Tehran before the return of the Moral Police 11 days ago as part of the ‘Plan Light’ to reimpose the use of the Islamic veil among Iranian women and the arrests of women who do not wear the garment have already begun.

The campaign was launched on the same day Iran launched a missile attack on Israel, leading activists to claim that authorities are using regional tensions to increase repression at home.

It is the most recent attempt by the Islamic Republic to reimpose the use of the veilwhich many women stopped using following the death in 2022 of Mahsa Amini after being arrested for not wearing the hijab properly.
