Shaparak Shajarizadeh removed her headscarf in protest against the compulsory hijab rule in Iran and was forced to flee the country.

Since the Iranian revolution in 1979, women have been forced to cover their hair according to Islamic law on modesty. In recent years, there have been demonstrations against the law.https://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-middle-east-46426844/the-iranian-trailblazer-who-removed-her-headscarf

I think that women should not be forced to cover their hair regardless of their religion or belief. They should be given the freedom to choose to wear or not to wear a hijab.

Do you think it is right to impose a mandatory law of wearing a hijab for women?

Hijab is the real freedom when it's worn upon faith. My hijab means I'm human with high potential not a female afraid of harassment. My hijab protects me from rape, abduction and all evil women nowadays subject to.

I believe you should also be able to feel free and afraid not wearing a hijab and I feel very sad, sorry, angry that there are still societies where woman must feel afraid only because they are women.

It should be a choice not a requirement.

I don't understand how a piece of cloth could be a barrier to feel her free.

No one should be forced to wear hijab, no one should be forced not to wear hijab - it's that simple. Everyone's freedom is different.

Please respect Islamic law, culture and values. Women must be covered but Islamophobes want to criticize such places like Iran and Gaza for making hijabs mandatory.

Why should women be covered? And men no?

Because woman have a natural beauty compare to men, men get aroused easily by looking at female body parts, it doesn’t happen the other way around.
