On 16 September 2022, a 22-year-old Iranian woman named Mahsa Amini died in Tehran, under suspicious circumstances, allegedly due to police detention.
The Speaker added: Security is the minimum duty that a system must provide for its people. But on the other hand, creating chaos in the streets weakens unity and economic loss.
After the death of Ms. Amini and the protests and street riots, the government restricted citizens' access to the Internet so that the rebels would not use it for their own purposes.
Referring to the internet restrictions in recent days, he said: This incident has caused many businesses to be damaged, and the enemy, who was ready to lift the sanctions until yesterday, increased his economic pressure.
"Of course, dealing authoritatively with those who endanger people's security does not mean that we are not going to solve the problems and social; difficulties, we must modify the structures and methods of implementing the morality police in such a way that such incidents do not happen again," Ghalibaf noted.
"Right to protest is one of the achievements that the Islamic Revolution has given to the people. Recently, we have had protests in social media and in the streets that have led to reforms," the parliament spokesman added.
Unfortunately, recently separatist groups have taken advantage of the conditions inside the country and disrupted the security of Zahedan city, but the people of that province rejected them with vigilance," Ghalibaf said.
