<<Seeking Answers: The Fate of Armita Geravand
As we produce this episode, a young woman is currently fighting for her life in a hospital under a heavy security presence. In today's episode, we will delve into the heart-wrenching details of 16-year-old Armita Geravand’s battle for survival. Her story gained international attention after she was brutally assaulted by a Hijab enforcer. Join us as we explore the latest updates and the unsettling circumstances that have come to light.
Could you provide more details about the incident involving Armita Geravand? What exactly happened on that fateful day? Armita is just 16 years old and a high school student. The unfortunate incident took place on Sunday, October 1st, when Armita and her friends were at a Tehran metro station, preparing to board a subway train. It was at this moment that she reportedly became the victim of an attack by a Morality Police agent, which ultimately led to her falling into a coma due to severe injuries sustained during the incident. The latest information that has come out from the hospital paints a grim picture of her condition. Armita is currently in a state of low consciousness, with unresponsive pupils, and she is in a critical medical condition. As you mentioned earlier, she has suffered from a cerebral hemorrhage and brain death. It's crucial to note that the government's official explanation for her injuries differs significantly from what many suspect. According to the government's narrative, Armita's blood pressure dropped, causing her to faint and hit her head on an iron edge. However, the events that unfolded afterward strongly indicate that she was most likely attacked inside the subway wagon and violently pushed to the ground.
Armita Geravand's friends mentioned that her head was bleeding when she was given CPR at the metro station. What details do we have?
According to witnesses, as Armita and her friends boarded the metro train, a female Hijab enforcer confronted Armita for not wearing a headscarf, which quickly escalated into a verbal altercation. Eyewitnesses claim that the situation took a more disturbing turn when the Hijab enforcer resorted to physical violence, forcefully pushing Armita. The impact of the shove caused Armita to fall to the ground, leading to her losing consciousness. Additionally, witnesses noted that the same Hijab enforcer was spotted lingering near the ambulance that transported Armita to the hospital, which has raised significant suspicions. Armita's friends recounted that when they managed to get her out of the subway car, they noticed that her head was bleeding. At that point, a nurse or doctor at the metro station administered CPR to her. Following this initial medical attention, Armita was swiftly transferred to the Air Force's Fajr Hospital by ambulance. The crucial question that arises here is how someone could sustain such a severe head injury solely from fainting due to low blood pressure. This raises doubts, especially considering that several doctors have publicly endorsed on social media that such head trauma is unlikely to result from a mere fainting episode, suggesting that a physical push was likely involved in Armita's injuries.
The presence of security forces and intelligence agents at the Fajr Hospital has been reported. What does this heavy security presence suggest?
The evacuation of an entire ward at the hospital and its subsequent encirclement by security forces and plainclothes agents strongly suggests a significant level of government involvement in this case. What's particularly alarming is the fact that even Armita's parents are being denied access to see her, which raises serious concerns not only about her well-being but also about the extent to which her medical condition is being controlled and manipulated. A reporter who attempted to prepare a report on this incident was arrested when she went to the hospital. It's important to note that the regime has become increasingly cautious following last year's uprising in response to similar incidents. So, they did release the reporter after several hours in custody. Security forces also visited Armita's high school, where they intimidated and warned the students against giving any interviews or sharing any posts. They have been silenced and barred from speaking with reporters. These actions by the authorities not only prevent the parents from discovering the truth about their daughter but also raise suspicions that they may not announce her death, if and when it occurs.>>

<<New details emerge as 16-year-old Armita Geravand is fighting for her life
16-year-old Armita Geravand is still in a coma after being brutally assaulted by a Hijab enforcer early Sunday morning, October 1, 2023. Her condition has not improved. Armita's family is under severe security pressure and they are not allowed to visit their daughter. Her parents and friends are silenced, and banned from reaching out to reporters. Intelligence services have even visited Armita's high school and intimidated the students, ordering them to stay away from news outlets. Her mother was violently arrested on October 4, allegedly after attempting to enter the ICU to see her child.
The 16-year-old Armita Geravand and a couple of her friends boarded a train at Tehran's Shohada Metro Station. Two witnesses have told The Guardian that there was an altercation, which led to Armita's cerebral hemorrhage and loss of consciousness.
Excerpts from The Guardian:
A witness claimed that soon after Armita entered the carriage a female hijab enforcer started arguing with her because she wasn't wearing a headscarf. <The chador-clad woman screamed at her asking her why was she not covered,> the witness told the Guardian. <Armita then told her 'Do I ask you to remove your headscarf? Why are you asking me to wear one?' Their argument then turned violent. The hijab enforcer started physically attacking Armita and ... violently pushed her.>

Another witness said Armita was still conscious when she fell on the ground. Witnesses claimed they spotted the same hijab enforcer waiting behind the ambulance that took Armita to the hospital. State news has not carried any footage from inside the train itself and offered no explanation on why it hadn't been released. Most train cars on the Tehran metro have multiple CCTV cameras, which are viewable by security personnel. Opposition figures say the clock on the footage shows at least 100 seconds is missing.
[End of excerpts from The Guardian]
Other reports on social media identified the woman accompanying the parents of the 16-year-old Armita Geravand, during their interview at the hospital as Kowsar Jowhari. She is a teacher at Hazrat-e Massoumeh School in Shahriar and a member of the Basij in this city. She is not in any way related to the Geravand family.

Amnesty International issued a call on Friday, October 6, urging an investigation of the conditions of Armita Geravand by an independent fact-finding mission while the Iranian government is only trying to cover up.
Let us all pray for the recovery of the innocent 16-year-old Armita Gervand as she is fighting for her life and symbolizing the fate of young Iranian women who want to enjoy their fundamental freedoms.>>
I, Gino d'Artali, I have been deeply grieving and praying since a week now for Armita Geravand; Aylar Haghi; Zahra Hatami and ever since innocent girls and women fall or felt victim to the 'bloodhounds of the regime'

<<Iran's Top Sunni Cleric Calls for Justice for Girl in Coma
Molavi Abdulhamid, Iran's most prominent Sunni cleric, used his Friday sermon to urge the country’s authorities to investigate a recent incident that left a 16-year-old girl in a coma, and to bring those responsible to justice. Armita Geravand has been hospitalized since October 1, when she collapsed in a Tehran subway train due to what the authorities called a <drop in blood pressure.> However, a witness has told IranWire that a chador-clad woman <physically assaulted Armita and pushed> her during an altercation over the teenager's lack of head covering. <All Iranian citizens are concerned about her well-being, and the entire world is closely monitoring the news,> Abdulhamid, the outspoken Sunni Friday prayer leader of the southeastern city of Zahedan, said on October 6. <It must be investigated, and those responsible must be held accountable. The only way to appease the public is to ensure that justice prevails and the culprits face consequences,> he added. At the behest of Molavi, Zahedan residents held a silent march in the city after Friday prayers, according to local reports. Molavi has been a key dissenting voice inside Iran since the eruption of nationwide anti-establishment protests in September last year, using his sermons to call for fundamental economic, social and political changes in the country. The monthslong protests were sparked by the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini while in police custody for an alleged head-scarf violation. The authorities responded to the women-led protest movement with a brutal crackdown that has claimed the lives of more than 500 people. Thousands of others have been unlawfully arrested and prosecuted. Zahedan is the capital of Sistan and Baluchistan province, which is home to Iran's Sunni Baluch minority of up to 2 million people. The restive city has seen protest rallies almost every Friday since September 30 of last year, when security forces killed nearly 100 people in the deadliest incident in the nationwide demonstrations.>>

<<Witness Says Iranian Girl in Coma Was <Pushed> by Woman
A 16-year-old Iranian girl who has been hospitalized in a coma for five days collapsed after being violently <pushed> by a chador-clad woman in a Tehran subway train because the teenager did not wear a head covering, a witness told IranWire. On the morning of October 1, Armita Geravand and two female friends boarded a subway carriage in Tehran's Shohada station, the witness said. The girls were wearing school uniforms and had headscarves draped over their shoulders. <A middle-aged woman, who was wearing a patterned scarf and a chador, engaged in a dispute with Armita as soon as she entered the train carriage because she didn't wear her headscarf,> the witness said. <After a brief verbal exchange, the middle-aged woman physically assaulted Armita and pushed her, causing her to fall.> Armita's friends took her out of the train before it continued on its route, the witness said, adding that the assailant disembarked at the next station. CCTV footage shared by government-affiliated media showed Armita without a hijab accompanied by two friends walking toward the train from the metro platform. Upon entering the carriage, one of the girls is seen backing off and reaching for the ground, before another girl is dragged unconscious from the cabin. Footage from inside the train has not been released, despite evidence suggesting that the train car had CCTV cameras. Authorities claim that Armita fainted due to a drop in blood pressure, but rights groups say she fell during a confrontation with agents because she was not wearing the mandatory hijab. The human rights group Hengaw said Armita's mother, Shahin Ahmadi, was arrested and that her whereabouts are unknown, suggesting that the authorities fear she does not support the official narrative of the incident.>>
