More Barbarism from the Mullahs in Iran

Execution of a teenage girl
A television documentary team has pieced together details surrounding the case of a 16-year-old girl, executed two years ago in Iran.

Atefah Sahaaleh: wrongly described as being 22 years old

On 15 August, 2004, Atefah Sahaaleh was hanged in a public square in the Iranian city of Neka.

Her death sentence was imposed for "crimes against chastity".

The state-run newspaper accused her of adultery and described her as 22 years old.

But she was not married - and she was just 16.

Sharia Law

In terms of the number of people executed by the state in 2004, Iran is estimated to be second only to China.

In the year of Atefah's death, at least 159 people were executed in accordance with the Islamic law of the country, based on the Sharia code.

Since the revolution, Sharia law has been Iran's highest legal authority.

Alongside murder and drug smuggling, sex outside marriage is also a capital crime.

As a signatory of the International Convention on Civil and Political Rights, Iran has promised not to execute anyone under the age of 18.


It is unbelievable to execute a young girl for crimes against chastity. The Iranian mullahs are out of control. They must be overthrown. I am sure the vast number of Iranians would oppose this act of barbarism. Her crime: she was raped by an ex member of the revolutionary guard! This is the government that is trying to build a nuclear bomb. One can see their word on treaties is worthless. I hope HIH Prince Reza Pahlevi will help overthrow these murderers of children.

Culture of Islam has been at work in Iran since the Mullahs seized power and took all of us hostage.

Death to Mullahs!

I guess if you're an evil bastard, it's a good way to get rid of someone who may bear a child she raises to hate the current Iranian government.

How sad..
