An angry Iranian cop roughly grabbed an unsuspecting teenage girl and forcefully flung her on to the ground – because she wasn’t wearing a hijab.
Video shows the girl being grabbed and shoved by the large, male officer while walking along a street, in broad daylight.
Mobile footage shows the burly cop seizing the short, young girl in front of bystanders, and he’s immediately very physical with her.
He appears to shove away a man who tries to come to her aid, knocking the girl across her head in the process.
Clutching her left arm, he swings out at the Good Samaritan, to stop him intervening.
All the while, the girl is flailing, trying to stop herself from tripping over while being shoved by the rough cop.
Still in a rage, the cop trips over the kerb, falling to his right knee – but refuses to let her go, and deliberately pulls her to the ground with him.
He then shoves her head towards the grass and slams her against the ground.
The Metro reports that the teen had been walking through Shahr-e-Rey, south of Tehran.
She was reportedly ordered to stop by the cop, but ignored him.
It’s the latest in a string of incidences aimed at preventing women in Iran from going hijab-free.
In July last year, the Sun reported brave anti-hijab protester Shapark Shajarizadeh being caged for daring to take off her headscarf and wave it from a stick in protest.
Many Muslim women cover their heads in public with the hijab as a sign of modesty, however some critics see it as a sign of female oppression, including in Iran.
