People were spotted objecting to the man's "foul behavior." Alavi stated that it was "a show of the Iranian people's hatred towards this regime."
The Islamic dress code, in place since the 1979 revolution, considers veiling obligatory for any female above 13 in Iran and says they should cover themselves from head to toe, while disavowing any figure-hugging clothes. There are numerous instances of Iranians disavowing and protesting these rules.
Iranian people protested against the regime in late 2017. A number of protestors have been spotted burning posters carrying the picture of the Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
