Brussels, 30 January 2023 (TDI): European Union (EU) is all up to put more sanctions on Iran as the result of the human rights violations against the peaceful protestors.

After the brutal murder of Mahsa Amini, a thousand protestors came out on the streets and chanted slogans against the strict Iranian regime which is violating people’s fundamental rights at all levels.

The Iranian government hardly anticipated such protests. Consequently, there was a violent crackdown on peaceful protesters in the entire country.

By closely observing the situation, the EU put a lot of sanctions on the Iranian regime especially harming the protestor for demanding their fundamental rights.

The EU parliament not only imposed sanctions on the Iranian regime but also put the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps on the terrorist list.

It is pertinent to note that relations between the EU and Iran were tense since the Iranian revolution in 1979 as after the revolution women faced severe restrictions in Iran and they were not able to exercise their rights freely.

The EU has been concerned about the situation for years and imposed targeted sanctions in 2011 in response to severe human rights violations in Iran.

After the incident of Mahsa Amini, the EU is much concerned about the human rights situation in Iran. The EU parliament is imposing more and more restrictions in Iran to act highly on the situation of human rights in the country.

It is high time that Iran must take major steps and change its stiff regime and provide fundamental human rights to all of its citizens.
