People in Tehran, other cities hold rally to slam unrest

Tehran, IRNA – Thousands of Friday prayer worshippers in Tehran and other Iranian cities held rallies in order to condemn the sacrilege of Islamic sanctities as well as recent unrest.

After saying the Friday prayers, people poured into the streets of the Iranian capital to censure insulting the Holy Quran, setting fire to mosques as well as desecrating the Islamic dress code of women.

The rally has been held from the venue of the Friday prayers at the University of Tehran to Enghelab Square in downtown Tehran.

During the rally, the demonstrators chanted slogans against those who broke Islamic laws.

The demonstrators chanted slogans to show their resentment against recent disturbances and desecration.

A sad incident of the death of an Iranian woman sparked protests, which have been marred with some disturbances and desecrations.

In other cities and provinces, the Iranian people also reacted to the sacrilege to show their support for the Islamic Revolution and its leadership.

The Friday prayer worshippers from provinces and cities such as Mazandaran, Kerman, Zahedan, Isfahan, South Khorasan, Bushehr, Qazvin, Hormozgan, Chaharmahal-o Bakhtiari, Varamin, Pakdasht, Yasuj, and Rasht took part in the demonstrations to condemn the recent attacks on religious sanctities, calling on judiciary officials to arrest the attackers and bring them to justice.
