Iran to hang teenage girl attacked by rapists
Iran to hang teenage girl attacked by rapists
Sat. 07 Jan 2006
Tehran, Iran, Jan. 07 – An Iranian court has sentenced a teenage rape victim to death by hanging after she weepingly confessed that she had unintentionally killed a man who had tried to rape both her and her niece.
The state-run daily Etemaad reported on Saturday that 18-year-old Nazanin confessed to stabbing one of three men who had attacked the pair along with their boyfriends while they were spending some time in a park west of the Iranian capital in March 2005.
Nazanin, who was 17 years old at the time of the incident, said that after the three men started to throw stones at them, the two girls’ boyfriends quickly escaped on their motorbikes leaving the pair helpless.
She described how the three men pushed her and her 16-year-old niece Somayeh onto the ground and tried to rape them, and said that she took out a knife from her pocket and stabbed one of the men in the hand.
As the girls tried to escape, the men once again attacked them, and at this point, Nazanin said, she stabbed one of the men in the chest. The teenage girl, however, broke down in tears in court as she explained that she had no intention of killing the man but was merely defending herself and her younger niece from rape, the report said.
The court, however, issued on Tuesday a sentence for Nazanin to be hanged to death.
Last week, a court in the city of Rasht, northern Iran, sentenced Delara Darabi to death by hanging charged with murder when she was 17 years old. Darabi has denied the charges.
In August 2004, Iran’s Islamic penal system sentenced a 16-year-old girl, Atefeh Rajabi, to death after a sham trial, in which she was accused of committing “acts incompatible with chastity”.
The teenage victim had no access to a lawyer at any stage and efforts by her family to retain one were to no avail. Atefeh personally defended herself and told the religious judge that he should punish those who force women into adultery, not the victims. She was eventually hanged in public in the northern town of Neka.

I would put those two guys that ran away to death, cant belive they just ran away instead of defending their women.
Sometimes there is no justice.
Recently I heard a story in the US of a guy getting 60 days in jail for raping a little girl.

and the judging where utter bullshit. The iranian law system needs to get into the 21th century, not stay in the 8th.

Well, when you aren't allowed a lawyer, tried under Sharia as a Christian, and spoken to in Arabic (a language many don't speak), I'd say its far from fair making the "law of the land" sick and twisted

All I am saying is follow the laws of the land. If I was in those countries, I would be stupid to commit adultry.
The Quran never talks about stoning, it actually prescribes lashes for the Adulterers.
[24:2] The adulteress and the adulterer you shall whip each of them a hundred lashes. Do not be swayed by pity from carrying out GOD's law, if you truly believe in GOD and the Last Day. And let a group of believers witness their penalty.
[24:3] The adulterer will end up marrying an adulteress or an idol worshiper, and the adulteress will end up marrying an adulterer or an idol worshiper. This is prohibited for the believers.
[24:4] Those who accuse married women of adultery, then fail to produce four witnesses, you shall whip them eighty lashes, and do not accept any testimony from them; they are wicked.
[24:5] If they repent afterwards and reform, then GOD is Forgiver, Merciful.

sharia is not just law of the koran but is a combination of laws from multiple sources.
laws come from :
2. hadiths(sayings of important figures in there sect)
3. fatwas (religious rulings of there sect)
each different sect/group has there own hadiths and fatwas eg. sunni hadiths and shia hadiths and fatwas are different so is there interpretation of the quran becuase it would be directly related to there versions of hadiths and fatwas.
for example muslims sunnis belive in the hadits of the sahaba's so there sharia
is based on sahaba laws and koran while shia belive in hadiths of the 12 imams and so there sharia is based on the 12 imams etc...
so you cant say that if sudan(africanized sunni) does something it is related to saudia arabia(whabi sunni islam) or that they can be compared to iran(shia islam)
each group has different sharia laws :
- whabi sunni
- ortadox sunni
there are over 50+ different types of sect of islam so there are 50+ types of sharia law systems.

Sharia was applied to non muslim many times in the Middle East, and why not?
If a westerner commits a crime in an X country and the law is the sharia, the law is the law no?
as for that poor kid, WOW nice, Iran should stop producing nuke and look at their society, but wait another revolution will occur.

in my country i can smoke cannabis but if i came to america and smoke it i would be thrown in jail for x amout of years infact if i had possession of it in thailand/indonesia i could face the firing squad/death penality.
why do people think there laws should apply in other countries?
in america they can drive at 16 in england age is 17 if an american drove a car in england at 16 they would get jail or a criminal record.
people need to follow the law of the country there in and if they break the law they shouldnt cry when they get punished.
also alot of people need to remeber that there is alot of corruption in iran and pakistan you can pay the courts to make a desision in your favour. so the girl could have been put under death penalty becuase the family of the stabed person could have payed of the court to gain revenge. mostly poorer families will be unable too seek justice if they have no money.

for driving, under international law, if someone own a licence they can drive, so if the law in X country says you need to be 18 but you have a licence from country B where the law is at 16, you can drive because of your license and the country should recognized it.
except in Saudia where women are not allowed, not that a bad thing!!!

Do you support stoning as a form of execution, in countries where it is the law of the land?
I've seen the videos, it is an awful way to die.
01-16-2006, 05:35 AM #20Originally Posted by Bigen12
I for one wish we had it here...
Of course it takes approx. 20 years to execute someone so I guess by that time no one really remembers what they did to deserve it ...

Caucasion here is a simple question: Do you support these 2 girls death sentences? I havent heard you mention anything about it yet.
