- Iran, stoning
Today is International day against Stoning.
Mina Ahadi, Spokesperson for the International Committee against Stoning, has written a piece in Persian about it here.
Real live human beings are still buried in a ditch and stoned until they are dead in the 21st century. In Iran, stoning someone to death isn’t illegal; it’s perfectly legal under Sharia. What’s illegal is the size of the stone – not to big to end it too quickly and not to small so as to take too long…
As Iran stoning case, Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, said once in an open letter: “How can anyone throw stones at my face and hands?”
Rage against stoning and in defence of the men and women facing this medieval and barbaric punishment.
