The body of a woman was found in the paddy fields of Amol after 20 days.
Safdar Eslami, Commander of the State Security Force of Amol, confirmed the news of discovering the body of a woman in the village of Hosseinabad and stated that the body belonged to a woman around 30 years old.
Islami added, “The woman had been murdered some 20 days ago by one of her relatives and buried in the paddy fields of Hosseinabad village.”
Some local sources identified the victim as Sara (Razieh) Shadifar, 33. She was a mother of two and resided in Hosseinabad village of Amol. They say her brother killed Sara because she wanted to emigrate to Turkey after two ill-fated marriages.
The Iranian regime green lights more heinous honor killings
Not a week goes by without some form of honor killing making headlines. The clerical regime’s failure to criminalize these murders has led to a catastrophic rise in honor killings.
The Iranian regime’s laws are not decisive in punishing the murderer. Usually, because the law considers the father the owner of his child’s blood, he does not receive a proportionate punishment for murdering his daughter. The Iranian laws give a license to kill, as evident in the murder of Romina Ashrafi in May 2020 and now in the murder of Mona Heydari.
The catastrophic rise in honor killings in Iran is rooted in misogyny and the patriarchal culture institutionalized in the laws and society. 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.
