The protests continue in the Middle East country of Iran after Mahsa Amini’s death. While some quoted the death of the 22-year-old as a normal case, a few others are still speculating it to have happened under suspicious circumstances. Amid this, hijab has been the centre of conversation  as the Guidance Patrol (religious morality police of Iran’s government) arrested Amini for not wearing hijab.

 

A similar incident grabbed limelight later when an Iranian athlete by the name of Elnaz Rekabi was seen competing in South Korea in October 2022 without her hijab. While some demonstrators saw the rock climber as a symbol of national uprising, appealing for more freedom for women in the country, some human rights groups expressed fear on the same.

 

A video now going viral after her successful return to the home country seem shocking. In the footage obtained from several social media channels, medals can be seen on ground as the house structure is completely destroyed. The video reportedly also has Elnaz’s brother Davood, who is seen in tears.

It still remains unknown whether this decision was taken by the order of the government. None of the state-aligned authorities have also commented on this incident.

 

On her return, the climber had also shared her feelings after the series of incident and said that this was unintentional. She took to her Instagram and wrote, “I am endlessly grateful for the support of you, all the people of Iran, the most decent people of the planet, athletes and non-athletes, and all your support in (the) international community”.
