Zan Zendegi Azadi and Melek Mosso singer Chops Off Hair To Support #MahsaAminin

A Turkish singer cut off her hair to support a protest in Iran against the hijab.

The death of Ms. Amini caused a lot of anger in Iran, where many women cut off their hair and burned their hijabs as a way to show their anger.

Melek Mosso, a Turkish singer, cut her hair on stage to show her support for Iranian women who were protesting the brutal death of Mahsa Amini. Iran's morality police arrested 22-year-old Amini because she wasn't wearing her hijab right and didn't cover all of her hair. She fell into a coma while she was in jail and later died.

The crowd cheered for Melek Mosso when she cut off her hair.

Her death has led to huge demonstrations in Iran, where many women have cut off their hair in public and burned hijabs.

When she was picked up by the morality police, Amini was in Tehran with her family to see relatives. Medical evidence shows that she got hit in the head several times, which put her into a coma. But, according to a report by Euronews, Iran's government said that she "had a sudden heart attack." The cousin of Amini, who lives in Iraq, said that she died from a "violent blow to the head."

Since her death, many women have burned their headscarves at rallies, cut off their hair, and chanted "zan, zendegi, azadi," which means "woman, life, freedom." Even though Iran's President Ebrahim Raisi has promised "decisive action" against the protesters, the protests have gone on for more than 10 days in a row.

At least 41 people have died because of all the trouble. A young protester named Hadis Najafi may have been shot and killed in Iran not too long ago. A video of the woman, in which she ties back her hair that hasn't been cut and joins a protest with courage, had gone viral. It is said that Najafi was shot in the stomach, neck, heart, and hand.
