Iran confronted more global criticism on Monday over the passing of a woman in captivity that set off nationwide protests after Tehran blamed the US for utilizing the turmoil to attempt to weaken the country.
Iran has taken action against the largest demonstrations from around 2019, ignited by the demise of 22-year-old Kurdish lady Mahsa Amini on Sept. 16 after she was confined by morality authorities upholding the Islamic Republic’s severe limitations on how women are allowed to dress. The case has drawn much condemnation from all over.
Be that as it may, the actions have not prevented Iranians from requiring the fall of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and the remainder of the administrative establishment. Canada will set sanctions on those responsible for the passing of Amini, including Iran’s morality police unit and its authority, Canadian State leader Justin Trudeau said on Monday.
“We’ve seen Iran disregarding human rights time and time again, now we see it with the death of Mahsa Amini and the crackdown on protests,” Trudeau told journalists in Ottawa in a statement.
Extremist Twitter account 1500tasvir posted recordings that showed road fights late on Monday in various pieces of Tehran, and film where occupants could be heard shouting “Death to Khamenei” from their homes. Women from around the country have had a noticeable impact in the fights, removing and waving or burning their veils.
Human rights groups like Hengaw posted a video that showed dissenters cheering in Sanandaj, the capital of the Kurdistan region, as ladies removed their headscarves to fight the forced hijab. In a later video, lots of shooting could be heard as roads seemed, by all accounts, to be filled up with what is assumed to be tear gas.

However, that was not the only video making rounds, another video posted via social media is suspected to show authoritative powers starting to shoot late on Monday during the protests in Sardasht, a town with a huge Kurdish populace. Despite all that is going on and Iran slipping back into its old ways, they completely ignore the facts of what is going on in their region and instead point the finger at the US for causing the problems it is now dealing with. Iran said the US was supporting the protesters and rioters and trying to undermine the Islamic Republic.
“Washington is always trying to weaken Iran’s stability and security although it has been unsuccessful,” Iran’s Foreign Ministry representative Nasser Kanaani said in an open statement.
On his Instagram page, Kanaani blamed the leaders of the US and a few European nations for abusing an unfortunate episode on the side of “rioters” and overlooking “the presence of millions of people in the streets and squares of the country in support of the system”.
The protests were led to contest numerous arrests of students and forceful run-ins with authorities with security powers in Iranian colleges. On Sunday, Iran once again tried to place the blame elsewhere by summoning the Norwegian and British ambassadors over what it called interference and hostile media coverage of the unrest.
