Nasrin Sotoudeh an internationally renowned human rights lawyer Imprisoned in Iran for doing her job.
She has been sentenced to 38 years in prison and 148 lashes because she dared to provide legal protection to women who were arrested after refusing to wear a Hijab in public.
Under Sharia law in Iran, women are not allowed to sing, dance, talk to strangers or even show their hair in public.
If a woman is caught violating the Modesty law, she is brutally tortured by Sharia police and sent to prison for many many years.
Prisoners in Iran especially women suffer severe daily torture including rape.
Shockingly, the UN is not only ignoring these crimes of the Iranian terror regime but also legitimizing the terrorist regime.
On March 2019 the Islamic Republic of Iran was appointed to the UN Women's rights committee that judges complaints of women's rights violations.
According to UN, the violations that Iran will judge include:
• Stereotypical attitudes towards role of women.
• Violation of women's rights defenders' freedom of expression & assembly • Deaths & torture of women in custody.
• Impunity for violations of human rights of women.
This madness must stop.
