      Description
      Esmaeil Heidari Azad as governor of the city of Takab and head of the City Security Council is responsible for ordering the use of deadly weapons against protesters and the mass detention of protesters. The 2022-23 protests began following the death of Mahsa (Gina) Amini on September 13, 2022, in the detention of the morality police of the Islamic Republic.                         These protests quickly spread across the country and are remembered as the largest revolutionary uprising against the government since the establishment of the Islamic Republic. The Iranian government responded to these protests with deadly violence. According to human rights organizations, the security forces of the Islamic Republic have killed at least 551 people, with a minimum of 68 of them being children.
