Woman Arrested By Iran’s Security Force For Eating At Restaurant Without Hijab


Tehran: With the Hijab row yet to take a break in Iran, the country’s security forces arrested a woman for allegedly eating at a restaurant in public without her hijab.

According to a report by CNN, Donya Rad was arrested after a photo of her and another woman eating at a Tehran restaurant without their headscarves was widely circulated online.

The photo emerged Wednesday showing the two women having breakfast at a cafe that, like most coffeehouses in Iran, is traditionally patronized by men.

According to Rad’s sister, security agencies contacted Donya and summoned her to explain her actions.

“After visiting the designated place she was arrested, after a few hours of no news, Donya told me in a short call that she was transferred to Ward 209 of Evin Prison,” her sister told CNN.
