Iran: to stone or to hang?2011-12-28 14:56
Iran is surely strong country that can even give the finger to worldwide gendarme USA. But an adequate modern man will never want to live as people live in Iran. All the matter is in the Sharia - Islamic justice, which severely punishes even such offenses as the treason. Tehran now is thinking whether to hang up or to stone a forty-years-old Azerbaijani Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, who was convicted of adultery, and then forced to admit even the murder of her husband.
Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani is repenting of her deeds for five years in an Iranian prison. At first, forty-years-old widow from the Iranian province Eastern Azerbaijan was arrested for "criminal relations" with two men after the death of her husband. In Europe, they would have written bestsellers and filmed dramas about her. In Iran, she was "awarded" 99 lash blows. After that, the mother of two sons admitted in a more grievous sin - a treason to her husband, which is punishable of stoning under Sharia. Sakineh was to be buried in the ground by the throat, and every wishing would throw stones at her until she dies or - quite unlikely - would come out of the ground and run away.
The case widely publicized thanks to Sakineh's son, who asked for a pardon, and the world community began to pressure on Tehran, demanding to release a woman guilty only of the fact that she loved someone. The execution was postponed.
In the meantime, this year Sakineh admitted in a new crime - the murder of her husband with help of her lover. It is a crime punishable under Sharia law by more humane way - death by hanging.
Iranian television showed an interview with a woman sentenced to death. Enlightened Muslim woman is morally ready to clear herself through penalty and accused all those who tried to help her of interfering in her personal life. Among those who got in the heat of the moment there is the defendant's lawyer Mohammad Mustafa who fled to Norway. It was he who told the public about the conditions which incited her to murder the husband. He traded his wife's body, earning for drugs. Unable to endure the humiliation (she has been raped in front of the husband) Sakineh injected him soporific, and then called her husband's cousin, Isa Taheri, who connected the wires to the sleeping and ran electric current through him.
