Melek Mosso cut her hair on stage to support Iranian women

Mahsa Amini died in a hospital in Tehran 3 days after she was arrested by the “Moral Police” in Iran for “violating the headscarf rules”. Following Amini’s death, protests in Iran have been going on for days.

On the other hand, some female protesters are sharing videos of them cutting their hair and burning their headscarves on social media.

Finally, the artist Melek Mosso also supported the protests that started for Mahsa Amini. Mosso supported this action by cutting his hair on stage.


On 13 September, 22-year-old Mahsa Amini was detained by the so-called “morality police” Irshad patrols, who enforced the mandatory headscarf laws, on the grounds that part of her hair was showing. Amini, who was thought to have been beaten and put into a coma while in custody, died on 16 September. Amini’s death was also a spark for the public, especially women, who have been subjected to the regime’s oppression for years.

The protests, which started with Amini’s death and spread throughout the country, have been going on for 6 days. It is recorded that at least 7 people have lost their lives, hundreds of people have been injured and hundreds of people have been detained as a result of the harsh intervention of the regime forces. Women who resist against everything in the streets, burn their headscarves and cut their hair; demanding the overthrow of the sharia regime.

The protests, concentrated in the Kurdish-dominated northwestern regions of Iran but spreading to at least 50 cities and towns across the country, were the most violent protests since 2019 over the rise in gasoline prices.
