Human rights gravely violated in the US: Marzieh Hashemi

Human rights gravely violated in the US: Marzieh Hashemi
IRAN  -  On the Islamic Human Rights and Human Dignity Day, Marzieh Hashemi, one of the winners of the Islamic human rights prizes, described the horrible human rights situation in the US particularly with regard to Afro-Americans.

"Since 1921, any social movements started by back people have been cracked down by the US government and this has led to the violation of black citizens' human rights. Black people are shot down by the police for no good reason. Drugs and guns are easily sold and distributed in black neighborhoods in order for the black people to get used to practice violent actions against one another", she said.

She also mentioned her personal experience as she was detained under inhuman circumstances in the US and the police removed her hijab when she was being interrogated for merely supporting the Islamic Republic views. "The US government claims to support different religious views and freedom of expression according to its constitution, but in practice you can see that they violate all those rights easily and do not respect a Muslim's religious views", she added.
