- According to a report, an Iranian man was captured on video grinning as he walked through the streets clutching the severed [email protected] of his 17-year-old wife, whom he decapitated in a “honor killing.”
According to East2West News, the gruesome footage shows Sajjad Heydari strolling through a neighborhood in Ahvaz, a city in the southwestern province of Khuzestan, with Mona Heydari’s head in one hand and a blade in the other on Saturday.
According to the Women’s Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, Mona, who was also Sajjad’s cousin, was forced to marry him when she was only 12 years old.
Despite her desire to divorce the brute, she reportedly suffered domestic abuse and was pressured to stay put for the sake of their 3-year-old son.
The teen eventually made his way to Turkey, but returned after finding it difficult to live alone in another country, according to the news outlet.
Sajjad and his brother allegedly tied her hands and chopped off her head a few days later. Her body was dumped before her husband carried her head through the streets.
The motive for the murder, according to a police official, was “family differences.”
The two men were reportedly apprehended, but the severity of their punishment is unknown.
According to Iran International, Mona sent photos of herself from Turkey to her husband, which fueled his “negative emotions.”
“In a report published in 2019, the state-run Sharq daily newspaper wrote that an annual average of 375 to 450 honor killings are recorded in Iran,” the resistance council said.
“The catastrophic rise in honor killings in Iran is rooted in misogyny and the patriarchal culture institutionalized in the laws and society,” the group continued.
“Although the father, brother or husband holds the knife, sickle or rifle, the murders are rooted in the medieval outlook of the ruling regime. The clerical regime’s laws officially denote that women are second-degree citizens owned by men,” it added.
“No week goes by without some form of honor killing making headlines,” according to the women’s committee. Honor killings have increased dramatically as a result of the clerical regime’s failure to criminalize them.
Meanwhile, the state-run news agency Rokna has been reported to have been shut down as a result of the shocking video it published.
