Maryam Rajavi calls for condemnation of the mullahs' regime for its crimes against women

The Iranian regime's suppressive guards have in recent days launched another campaign of harassment against women, particularly in Tehran, reports from Iran say. Every day, hundreds of women including teenage girls are beaten or arrested and imprisoned under the bogus pretext of improper veiling.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the Iranian Resistance's President-elect, condemned these actions by the misogynous mullahs. Mrs. Rajavi called on the international community to break their silence towards the religious, terrorist dictatorship ruling Iran and boycott the mullahs for their endless crimes against women.

Mrs. Rajavi urged the people of Iran to resist the onslaught and insults of the regime's suppressive forces and do not allow a bunch of hoodlums humiliate and harass the respectable women of Iran.

Referring to the regime's increasing crises, the Iranian Resistance's President-elect said: Through these suppressive measures, Tehran's rulers seek to create an atmosphere of fear and terror among the disenchanted people of Iran, especially women, whose increasing role in the nationwide Resistance and popular uprisings has terrified the regime.

"With all of your reactionary and medieval savagery, misogyny and oppression, you have done all you could do to Iranian women, but I warn you to beware of the day when this tremendous historic force is set free. Then you will see how you and your backwardness will be uprooted by these free women," Mrs. Rajavi addressed the mullahs in her speech before 25,000 people in London on June 20, 1996, the fifteenth anniversary of the nationwide resistance against the mullahs' regime.
