Iranian activist and journalist Masih Alinejad has posted a video on her Twitter account showing an Iranian moral policewoman scolding a girl for not wearing her hijab ‘properly.’
Despite wearing a long headscarf, the woman claimed that she wore it improperly since she showed the front of her hair.
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.
Earlier, authorities announced that they have arrested at least 29 people involved in such protests in Tehran alone. Earlier this month a girl was seen in a video taking off her hijab in front of a Basij base.
