Perhaps one of the most outrageous examples:
He (the father) explained: “Maryam had been acting suspiciously lately, and I suspected that she was having an affair with a man. The night before her death she had nausea and abdominal pain. This made me certain about my suspicion. Then I decided to kill her to save my family´s honor”
He did not try talking to his daughter.
However, he is not going to be charged with murder, since according to the Iranian law, if a father or grandfather (on father´s side) kill his child or grandchild, he will not be charged and punished for murder.
In this report, the 14 years old girl is identified as Somayeh, and the person helping Sharif is identified as Ghafour. This report doesn’t mention that the 14 years old girl was shot, but quoting the father says: “When we were taking her (Somayeh) to the mountains, she was scared but still didn’t know what she was expecting. Upon arrival to the scheduled place, I threw Somayeh on the ground and started the stoning. She was screaming and begging for her life, but I had to save my honor and didn’t have any other choice than killing her…”.
There are more on the site but these two are examples of cases here fathers have murdered their 14-year old daughters and are protected by Iranian law.
Now, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that this is happening, but I wanted to share these reminders in the hope that you will pray for the souls of these poor young girls and all others who are victims of the barbaric laws upheld in Iran and similar nations.
