Adultery and homosexuality means guaranteed death for this pair, in accordance with the Sharia. “Even though the woman asked for clemency, her father didn’t accept his son-in-law’s infidelity and demanded that he and his lover be killed.”
Yet the West has flung its doors wide open to immigration from Muslim countries, despite the fact that strict Sharia adherents such as this father will be among the migrants. Adherence to mainstream Islam (the Sharia) is incompatible with the legal codes of Western countries.
In Iran, already 480 executions have taken place between 2020 and 2021, and numbers will likely rise under Iran’s new President Ebrahim Raisi, a.k.a. the Butcher of Tehran.
More on this story. “27-Year-Old Married Iranian Man, His Male Lover Sentenced To Death For Adultery,” by Natalia Ningthoujam, Latin Times, November 8, 2021:
Adultery will cost the lives of a married Iranian man and his male lover as they have been sentenced to death by Iran’s supreme court in Tehran.
Earlier this year, the man’s wife had presented cops with video evidence of her husband’s infidelity, according to Daily Mail.
The married man, aged 27, and his 33-year-old lover are expected to be hanged even though the man’s wife begged the courts to show mercy, reported The Sun.
If a victim’s family forgives those who have been accused of a crime, they can be given a jail sentence or be pardoned, according to Iranian Sharia law. It is the legal system of Islam and was derived from the religion’s central religious text called the Quran, and fatwas, which are the rulings of Islamic scholars.
Even though the woman asked for clemency, her father didn’t accept his son-in-law’s infidelity and demanded that he and his lover be killed.
In 2020, Iran carried out 246 executions, but just one in public, according to human rights group Amnesty International. There was no breakdown of the number of executions carried out for adultery. Adultery is generally punishable by stoning under the Sharia law, but in 2013 Tehran changed the law that allowed judges to choose how to execute the accused.
Sharia, an Arabic word, originally meant path or way, and refers to the revealed law of God, and it informs all the aspects of the daily life of a Muslim. Mu’amalat, which means social relations and human interactions, and ibadat meaning acts or rituals of worship are the two branches of Sharia. There are smaller branches as well that include marriage, prayers, fasting and finances, among other things.
