Goharshad Massacre

Video: 100s of women killed in Iran over hijab

In July of the year 1935, 1670 Iranian people were brutally killed because of protesting hijab ban imposed by Reza-Khan Pahlavi—who was a dictator placed by Britain to reign over Iran. This video portrays this historical event along with a poem composed and recited by Mohammad-Hossein Malekian. In this poem, Malekian has also made reference to the victory of the Islamic Revolution as well as current events. This poem was recited before Imam Khamenei in the Ramadan of 2018.
