On Wednesday, an Iranian woman was sentenced to 2 years in prison for removing her hijab in public.
The woman, in an act of defiance, removed her headscarf on Enghelab Street in the capital city of Tehran. She was arrested as a result and has been given jail time.
Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi, Tehran’s chief prosecutor, told Mizan Online News Agency that the woman had tried to encourage moral “corruption through the removal of the hijab in public.”
After the news was shared online, people expressed outrage with one particular Twitter user saying it is “sick”. But a Muslim Twitter user replied defending the sentencing.
Ahmad Adamu Ngulde wrote: “Nothing is sick here. do you have “idea how many men she left in erection? The only problem here is they should be easy in the prosecuting but is Better here than to face the wrath of the creator.”
When he was called out for his opinion, he replied: “Madam do you know how blazing he’ll (sic) fire looks like?do you think you can stand the flame for an hour? Or don’t tell you don’t believe that hellfire exist?”
