Iranian security forces have arrested Donya Raad, a woman who was having breakfast in a public place like a restaurant without a hijab. Donya’s arrest came after a picture of him went viral on social media, which showed him having breakfast with another woman at a traditional Iranian restaurant. The photo is said to have surfaced for the first time on Wednesday, where she was having breakfast without a hijab in a male-dominated cafe. According to Donya’s sister, the security agency contacted her sister and asked her to explain her objection. Donya did not know anything for a few hours, then in a very brief call, Donya told that she was kept in Ward 209 of Even Prison. Even Tehran’s prison is notorious for its cruelty to prisoners. Iran’s political opponents are usually housed here. Its management is under the Ministry of Intelligence of Iran.
