  • Iran has denounced its latest sportswoman for appearing publicly without wearing a hijab.

    Niloufar Mardani appeared without a headscarf on the podium of the skating marathon in Istanbul on Sunday, having claimed first place in the event.

    Despite competing in a personal capacity and not on behalf of the national team, the Tehran sporting authority still condemned Mardani for not wearing an outfit approved by the country’s ministry.

    The skater called the incident "unintentional."

    This is in light of the anti-government protests that have engulfed the country for the past two months over the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, a Kurdish woman who was detained by the morality police for allegedly wearing her hijab “inappropriately”.

    Iran needs democracy to thrive

    Breezywarhead says:

    @Seeyou Seemee I prefer Iran democracy

    The Moorish Science Monitor says:

    @Breezywarhead Iran did not have a “democracy” under the monarchy/dictatorship of the Shah.

    Iran tried to have a democractically elected leader in the 1950s but the CIA deposed him in a Coup D’Etat and re-installed the Shah.

    Living in Iran is becoming a hell. Sympathy to fellow Iranians. You will overcome this barbarism

    Jacob Ali says:

    LoL idiots blaming the government while the West have been trying to starv the iranian people for decades 😂.
    How clueless and dumb can you people be

    Antonida says:

    Disagree. It’s been for a vero vero long time. 1979

    @Af Tech who cares the Bible and the Qu’ran are both fairy tales

    Justin Johnson says:

    @Af Tech nobody spends his who life adhering to verses of some old dirty books dumbo

    Kids in Trouble Help Page says:

    @Key on so true, actions speak louder than words! Respect the wishes of Iranians, kick out the fake regime representatives who don’t represent Iranians, and no nuke talks with this evil regime!

    Robert Mccollum says:

    Am I the only one finding it absolutely crazy that they have to pay a deposit to go to sporting events over seas…..like what?!

    IntrepidFraidyCat says:

    @Kids in Trouble Help Page D@mn! I really hope the protesters can bring about change but the crackdowns are brutal. A celebrity chef, who was protesting, was killed by the authorities…one day before his 20th birthday.

    H Persian says:

    You don’t know the level of suppression my friend! These thugs have literally no moral red line. Everything you say, every type of torture, crime, deception, etc they have done. Just to show you one thing they did just a couple days ago and we just got informed, they raped a pregnant woman in prison and then fired a shotgun in her private part that has torn her womb. I’m sorry to say this. I feel real awful even to write this. But I want to show how brave our people are to protest while they know what type of animals they’re facing. This regime is not Iranian. No similarity no resemblance nothing to any Iranian culture. They are literally some invaders and they themselves have said this several times that they don’t care about Iran. They’re just some coward criminals who has gone behind a stupid ideology to fill their pocket. Nothing more.

    IntrepidFraidyCat says:

    @H Persian Just so awful…😢

    Key on says:

    Anyone who is reading this! pls ask G7 leaders to expel Iran’s Diplomats! Wishing the best for Iranian women and men is not gonna stop the regime from killing them.

    Kids in Trouble Help Page says:

    @IntrepidFraidyCat The Celebrity chef, many 16 year old girls like Nika and Sarena, Asra Panahi who refused to sing the anthem of the regime, another girl Parmis Hamnava who they found had ripped out pictures of Khomeni from her textbook, all murdered, and that is just a few. The word horrible is not enough to describe such evil. We must remember all these people, especially the children.

    Way to go girl. The world stands by you.

    @Xfactor back off we don’t need your barbarian support.

    USA and UK is not the world

    Soap Monkey says:

    @lmaonade so you just repost memes? What a talent, such creativity, what a c*nt lol

    Angellos Malefakis says:

    @Carlo Mikhail Reid We are the world little girl and YOU better follow or be left behind. After all YOU are on YouTube that is American. YOU love your Apple phone? That too is American! YOU love James Bond or rap music? Guess what? That too is American. So go back to your room little girl and stop complaining and play with your Barbie dolls.

    LMB222 says:

    Wow, how inclusive.

    Freedom says:

    Respect to Iranians for what they’re doing and fighting against an evil non Iranian regime . You made Iranians proud and No one cares about this islamic non Iranian regime and we will win our country back! Respect ❤

    @Kids in Trouble Help Page Bible Law
    +1 Corinthians 11 6+
    For if a woman will not cover her head, then she should cut her hair and she must shave . But since it is disgraceful for a Woman to cut off her hair or shave her head (Bald), she should cover her heads

    Breezywarhead says:

    That’s right non Iranian regime are arabs

    Tom Greene says:

    @Af Tech Paul may have written that to keep women from being mistreated the way that this government mistreats them. It was written to a specific people at a specific time, and not necessarily to all people at all time. You are taking it out of context. At any rate, it appears that many women in Iran are cutting their hair, because they would rather be disgraced by the idiots in government, than to be slaves to them.

    Kids in Trouble Help Page says:

    @Af Tech Please… you can go join the Ultra Orthodox in Israel who every day steal more power, force women to cover up, and will one day try to make Israel into a theocratic state like Iran.

    Deadmau5_l says:

    Imagine being delusional over life and purpose because of tradition of a book and imaginary figure “better” than us all. Smell the coffee pack the books and prayers in, Enjoy life because it dont last long and there aint no afterlife just stop being scared of dying and everything gone for good.

    Af Tech says:

    People like you lifing in unrealistic life games girls drink
    Have no purpose in there life

    Sara Noor says:

    Thanks for showing that solidarity ♥️

    JerJer B says:

    Love for the people of Iran! Support to the women and their fellow supporters!

    Ed says:

    “Support” is not enough. Iran is led by primitive minded men who persecute females and will return them to concubine status unless resisted. Half the population of the world can take action by boycotting Iran, their products and their economic supporters by choosing to act with the wallet as well as the voice.

    Af Tech says:

    Its god command to cover ur body

    LinkSmokes420 says:

    @Af Tech Nope

    Persian empire says:

    @Af Tech that’s MR Allah not God

    Honour The Fire says:

    If “God” is to lead by example to be a decent loving being, or “Allah” for that matter. Then they would allow Women too wear what they wish.
    No one has the right to dictate what Women should wear. Power to the People and all Power to Women everywhere.

    druid139 says:

    Wouldn’t a hijab be a serious liability in speed sports? They’re not exactly aerodynamic.
    Good for her.

    Professor Jay Tee says:

    They wear helmets in the sport. They can’t wear the helmet on the podium to get their award.

    eeyore345 says:

    Women, life, freedom!

    Let us not forget these brave people and continue their support to fight for freedom!

    For not putting a piece of cloth on her head? That’s ridiculous

    Af Tech says:

    @A Gordon
    Ignoring even ur own religion law 😂

    Justin Johnson says:

    @Af Tech country’s law is more important than the religious law. 99% of christian countries are secular u fool.

    Freedom is coming soon to the people of Iran! This is the revolution and you will be victorious, because you are proud,  brave, and determined!

    Kids in Trouble Help Page says:

    @Af Tech Don’t try to take the spotlight off of Iran. Falastine is a whole different story, where both sides need to agree to peace, I very much believe in peace and better future for all.

    Respect earned from the action and behaviour, and certainly Iranian women supercede any odds and means to show their defiance against the dictatorship regime! #WomenLifeFreedom #MahsaAmini

    R.P. Rosen says:

    WOMEN … LIFE … FREEDOM. My respect & prayers to the Iranian people.
