In the video, the woman is purportedly seen asking the girl to wear it as she has instructed. However, the girl responded by saying that this was “none of her business.’ Consequently, the policewoman sought to escort her out of the hall to arrest her.

In recent days, Iran’s morality police have stepped up their campaign against women since the symbolic protest against the hijab began weeks ago. The number of participants continue to increase dramatically.
