ALBAWABA - Mahsa Amini's brother took it to Instagram, showing a picture of his late sister's gravestone being damaged. 

Askan Amini posted a photo of the damaged gravestone and wrote: "The glass of your tombstone also bothers them. Break it a thousand times, we will fix it again, let's see who gets tired."

It remains unknown who caused damage to the glass plate covering Amini's tombstone or the exact date when it was vandalized.

Amini's family lawyer confirmed the vandalism, "people known to have done the same things in the past attacked and destroyed the grave," according to a statement published by Radio Farda.

Mahsa Amini died after being arrested by the country's morality police for "not wearing the hijab properly" on Sept. 16, 2022, in Tehran. Amini spent 3 days in the hospital, doctors announced her dead. 

Amini came to the hospital with visible signs of torture which caused her severe damage that left her body almost paralyzed. 

Thousands of Iranians, mostly women, took to the streets to protest what they consider police oppression and brutality against women, compulsory hijab and their rights in Iran.
