Activists went to the social media to share videos taken from the protests calling it the largest of its kind in the country.

Iranian activists confirmed that protests this time coincided with the holy month of Ramadan and is against the "Hijab and Chastity" campaign that enforce the mandatory hijab around the country and forcing women to comply to the rigid dress code.
