Iran’s foreign minister cancelled a scheduled visit to India next month for an event whose promotional video showed protesting Iranian women cutting their hair, according to reports, APA reports citing the Independent.

Hossein Amir-Abdollahian was scheduled to visit the country for a geopolitical conference – the Raisina Dialogue scheduled for 3 and 4 March – but cancelled because a promotional video of the event showed protesting Iranian women cutting their hair in juxtaposition with Iranian president Ebrahim Raisi.

The Raisina Dialogue is a premier geopolitical conference hosted by the think-tank Observer Research Foundation (ORF) in partnership with the Ministry of External Affairs.

It was reported that the promotional video of the Raisini Dialogue was put out a month ago. The video has less than a two-second shot of Iranian women cutting their hair in protests and that image was juxtaposed with the image of the Iranian president.
