Ravina Shamdasani, a spokesperson for the Office of the High Commissioner, said that according to certain accounts, "two to five people [had] been slain" during the protests that were held to condemn the young woman's death.

The United Nations Voiced Concern on Tuesday, September 20, Regarding the Violent Repression by Iranian Authorities Against Demonstrations Protesting the Death of Mahsa Amini, a Young Woman Arrested by the Morality Police The UN Voiced Concern Regarding the Violent Repression by Iranian Authorities Against Demonstrations Protesting the Death of Mahsa Amini.

In a statement, Nada Al-Nashif, who is serving as acting High Commissioner for Human Rights of the United Nations, said:

"The unfortunate death of Mahsa Amini and the claims of torture and ill-treatment must be quickly examined by an independent competent body in a manner that is unbiased and effective in order to guarantee, in particular, that her family has access to justice and the truth,"

Ravina Shamdasani, a spokeswoman for the High Commission, stated that "two to five people [had] been killed, according to some reports" during the protests that were held in several cities across the country, including Tehran, to denounce the death of the young woman. These protests took place in response to the fact that the young woman had been killed. She further said that the cops "fired live weapons" and deployed tear gas during the incident.

Al- Nashif also brought up the issue of forced veiling regulations in Iran, where it is a crime to appear in public without wearing a headscarf and the punishment for doing so is jail.

Unusually, a member of the Iranian Parliament voiced their disapproval of the Morality Police's operations, which have been the subject of much debate. According to statements made to the ISNA news agency by a member of parliament named Jalal Rashidi Koochi, "Gasht-e Ershad [guidance patrol] does not accomplish any outcomes other than causing harm to the nation."

"The first issue is that there are certain individuals who do not want to see the reality (...). When they leave these explanation meetings, do the individuals who were brought there by the guiding police recover awareness and repent? inquired the deputy sheriff.

Mohsen Mansouri, the governor of Tehran, claimed on Tuesday that the protests in Tehran were "planned with the purpose of generating disruption." He made this statement in a post on Twitter. The act of setting fire to motorbikes and trash cans, assaulting police officers, lighting fire to the flag, pouring diesel on the roadways, hurling stones, setting fire to public property, etc., are not the concerns of average citizens.

On Tuesday, a number of prominent political figures in France, including Yal Braun-Pivet, President of the National Assembly, voiced their support for the Iranian women's movement. "Mahsa Amini was 22 years old and all she wanted to do was live a life of freedom. As of today, she is no longer around. In Iran, a woman's bravery is revered. It is the one of each and every one of the women who are standing up in the cause of their freedom today. On Twitter, Yal Braun-Pivet said that "their battle is our fight."

Support for the Iranian women who are now struggling for their freedom. The heinous murder of Mahsa Amini has left everyone in shock. Valérie Pécresse, a previous candidate for the presidency who is now the head of the Les Républicains party in the area of Ile-de-France, responded on the social network as well.

Olivier Faure, the first secretary of the Socialist Party, has also taken up the cause on Twitter, saying that he is doing it "for Mahsa Amini and for all the other women who dream of freedom and equality."

Mahsa Amini, age 22, was detained on September 13 when she was in Tehran with her family. Mahsa Amini is originally from the Kurdistan area, which is located in the northwestern part of the nation. She had been in a coma for the previous three days before passing away on Friday at the hospital.

The Iranian authorities claim that the young lady died of natural causes; nevertheless, evidence that was supplied by the High Commission suggests that she was severely assaulted on the head and that her skull was slammed on a vehicle that was used by the vice squad.
