Stop Fundamentalism, September 1 – Two Basij members were overrun by a car in Tehran while they had stopped a young girl at a street checkpoint for investigations.
According to eyewitnesses the Basiji members acted offensively towards the girl when an unknown driver decided to take action to stop them.
The driver, who was apparently offended by the behavior of Basij members, hit the two with his car and then disappeared.

The two are hospitalized in Tehran-Pars Hospital and one of them is currently in a critical condition.
