Government Hinders First Death Anniversary Celebration of Mahsa Amini
Reports have emerged that the Iranian government has prohibited the commemoration of Mahsa Amini’s first death anniversary. Amini, who lost her life in Iran after a brutal beating by Takarya police, has become a symbol for the ongoing fight for human rights. Human rights organizations claim that Amini’s father, Amjad Amini, was detained to prevent him from holding the annual ceremony.
The ban on Amini’s family attending her first birthday celebration has sparked intensified protests both within Iran and worldwide, according to sources. It is reported that upon learning of the event, the government imprisoned Amjad Amini in his hometown of Sakas. Iranian human rights groups assert that authorities released Amini only after he was warned against hosting a memorial service at his daughter’s grave. However, Iran’s state news agency IRNA refutes these allegations.
A Catalyst for Change
Amini’s tragic death resulted in the birth of the “Women, Life, Freedom” movement, igniting a year-long wave of protests in Iran. Protest organizers, adopting pseudonyms to safeguard their loved ones still residing in Iran, hailed Amini as an emblem of revolution. Demonstrators raised Iranian flags and chanted slogans demanding an end to the death penalty in Iran and the release of all prisoners in the nation. Shockingly, among the photographs of victims killed by police during the protests were children as young as 9 years old. In the United States, where solidarity protests were organized, the call for unity resounded strongly.
Amini’s murder has not only galvanized resistance against the Iranian regime but has also prompted a fundamental reassessment of women’s autonomy and the oppressive conditions imposed upon them by religious authorities.
The Tragic Circumstances
Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old Iranian Kurd, met her untimely demise on September 16, 2022, in Tehran, the capital of Iran. She had traveled from her native village to the city but fell victim to the religious police officer responsible for enforcing Sharia law. Amini was detained for allegedly violating the mandatory hijab dress code and was struck by a police car, resulting in severe injuries. The Religious Affairs Police initially claimed that Amini, who had been taken to the police station, died from a heart attack two days later. However, a subsequent post-mortem report exposed the actual cause of death as cerebral hemorrhage and paralysis resulting from brutal torture.
The Iranian government responded to the ensuing protests, primarily spearheaded by the Kurdish population within the country, with excessive force. Unofficial estimates indicate that over 1,000 individuals lost their lives, and approximately 10,000 were imprisoned, including women, children, and students. Women demonstrated their opposition by publicly burning hijabs. This tumultuous period also triggered a mass exodus from Iran, eventually leading to a gradual decline in protests. Yet, on the first anniversary of Mahsa Amini’s tragic passing, reports indicate that both domestic and international protests are intensifying once again.
