Yesterday Sat. June 4, Iranian-Canadians during their weekly protest at the Parliament Hill and across from Prime Minister's office condemned the recent flogging of mine workers in Azarbayjan province and the university students in Iran. Referring to more than 2400 executions during Hassan Rouhani, the Iranian regime's president, protesters called for a moratorium on executions in Iran.
Similar raids have been carried out in Iran in recent days.
In Alborz province, north of Tehran another raid into a night party ended in the arrests of 12 girls and 17 boys.
In another case on May 28, more than 29 youngsters were arrested for participating in a mixed-gender party in Mashhad, north-east Iran.
Some 35 young men and women were flogged last week for taking part in a mixed-gender party after their graduation ceremony near Qazvin, some 140 kilometers northwest of the Iranian capital Tehran, Ismaeil Sadeghi Niaraki the regime's Prosecutor in the city said on May 26. Niaraki said that the following morning every one of those detained received 99 lashes as punishment by the 'Morality Police.'
Last month, the Iranian regime’s paramilitary Basij in north-eastern Iran broke up two mixed-gender parties within 72 hours on May 20 and 21 st, detaining 70 people. According to State-run ILNA news agency, on Friday, June 3rd 2016 the regime on Thursday arrested more than 70 young men and women in Tehran for taking part in a mixed-gender party at a restaurant.
Colonel Alireza Honardoost, the head of the regime’s public security police in Iran’s East Azerbaijan Province, stressed on May 31 that seals were placed on the 19 stores as part of a plan to eliminate un-Islamic fashions in the clothing guild.
He added: 'Other 41 clothing shops were obligated by the agents to give written commitments to respect the regulations due to their earlier lack of compliance.”“Furthermore, 64 sets of inappropriate clothes and women’s overcoats were confiscated and removed from shops,' he added. His remarks were carried by the Tasnim news agency, affiliated to the regime’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) terrorist Quds Force.
These measures have infuriated the owners of the stores, according to local reports. In April the Iranian regime launched a new plan to suppress women for 'improper veiling.' It deployed some 7,000 undercover 'morality police officers' in Tehran, tasked with suppressing women on the streets and alerting official law enforcement agencies of instances of “mal-veiling” and other “violations” of the mullahs’ fundamentalist laws.
