US extends support to protests against forced hijab in Iran

Washington, Feb 3 (UNI) The United States has extended its support to the Iranian people who have been protesting against women being forced to wear hijab.
In a press statement here on Friday, Ms Heather Nauert, Department Spokesperson, said the United States supports the Iranian people who are protesting against women being forced to wear the hijab.
"We condemn the reported arrests of at least 29 individuals for exercising their human rights and fundamental freedoms by standing up against the compulsory hijab. The United States remains steadfast in our support for the rights to freedom of religion, freedom of expression, and peaceful assembly. People should be free to choose the clothes they wear, and practice their faith as they desire. Depriving individuals of this choice undermines their autonomy and dignity," the statement said.
