Video showing Iranian woman dancing, removing hijab goes viral: Report
A video that is believed to have been shot in Iran and shows a Muslim woman dancing on top of a car and discarding her hijab has reportedly gone viral on the internet and is the latest example of women defying the strict laws imposed by the Islamist regime in the nation, a report said.
The video starts off with a woman dressed in hijab, a long black top and jeans. As she dances on top of a car, she removes her veil and is cheered by a crowd of spectators, reported Fox News.
The Islamic Republic of Iran enforces a strict dress code that requires women to cover their heads and wear long-sleeved tops that cover their hips and waist.
The popularity of the video showed that many Iranians are celebrating the woman's audacity despite the regulations imposed by the government, the report said.
However, the woman may face punishment from either the government or private enforcers of Sharia.
Ever since the Shah of Ira was ousted in 1979, the Islamic government in Iran has banned popular music, co-ed dancing and Western styles of dress.
