Freedom Hanging from a Rope in Iran

Despite an outcry from the international community and several human rights organizations against the use of capital punishment in Iran, the world still sees an increasing amount of images of hangings being carried out, ones that are justified by the Iranian regime as being a righteous duty for them.

Despite an outcry from the international community and several human rights organizations against the use of capital punishment in Iran, the world still sees an increasing amount of images of hangings being carried out, ones that are justified by the Iranian regime as being a righteous duty for them.

Under the rule of Hassan Rouhani, Friday morning news was again met with nine more prisoners being hung in Iran, including three as public executions. Three other men were put to death in the city of Bonab, where this increase in number has caused the international human rights organizations to be worried and on their toes as to when the Iranian regime would strike again.

The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) highlights how capital punishment in Iran, has escalated to such an extent that quite a number of executions are not even privy to the public. A group of five prisoners was hanged in Adelabad Prison, in the city of Shiraz, that was kept quiet by the authorities.

It has been reported that since Hassan Rouhani has become President of this clerical regime, over 1,200 people have been executed and hundreds more have been subjected to degrading and inhumane punishments such as amputation, flogging in public and being paraded naked in streets. The NCRI has been frequently denouncing this oppressive regime, by highlighting cases of death penalties under any justification. On New Year’s Day, it was reported by them, that 14 prisoners were hanged, including 4 women. The United Nations General Assembly last month slammed the violations of human rights by the Iranian regime, where it criticized it for using inhuman punishments and its ‘mullah’ dictatorship to cause fear for its civilians, through these unnecessary executions.

The Iranian Resistance has repeatedly condemned the carrying out of medieval punishments and executions by the clerical regime in Iran and has called for referral of the regime’s violations of human rights record to the United Nations Security Council. Maryam Rajavi, the leader of the Iranian opposition has elaborated on the movement’s vision for a future Iran, through their Ten Point Plan. In that, they have made it quite clear that they support and are committed to the abolition of death penalty, where for this to be possible, separation of religion and state is necessary. Only then would any form of discrimination against the followers of any religion and denomination will be prohibited.

The International Federation For Human Rights , has also criticized the continuation of the death penalty in Iran, providing insight into this ‘state terror policy’ of Iran, one that violates the basic human right of all human beings born free and equal in dignity. At a time when momentum is gathering across the world to abolish capital punishment, the Islamic Republic of Iran currently ranks second for number of executions and first for per capita executions in the world. Iran can never be free, unless it can break away from the shackles of its ‘mullah’ leaders, ones that are breeding fear and extremism through these hangings.
