What a misnomer for Islam! As we see below. Their inability to get on well with women shows what pathetic creatures these barbarians are. Women give Western men problems too but almost always we at least live with them if we don't adapt to them. I am at present in a relationship with a woman from a totally different culture from mine but it is a warm relationship because we are big enough to tolerate our differences and enjoy what we have in common
A shocking video has shown an Iranian man grinning as he walked through the streets clutching the severed head of his 17-year-old wife, after he allegedly decapitated her in an “honour killing,” the New York Post reports.
The gruesome footage shows Sajjad Heydari strolling through a neighbourhood in Ahvaz, a city in the southwestern province of Khuzestan, on Saturday with Mona Heydari’s head in one hand and a blade in the other, East2West News reported.
Mona, who was also Sajjad’s cousin, had been forced to marry him when she was just 12 years old, according to the Women’s Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran.
She reportedly suffered domestic abuse but was pressured to stay in the marriage for the sake of their three-year-old son.
Mona did manage to escape to Turkey, but her family brought her back, Iran International reported.
A few days later, Sajjad and his brother allegedly tied her hands and decapitated her. Her body was dumped before her husband was seen walking through the streets holding her severed head.
A police official said the motive for the murder was “family differences”.
The two men have reportedly been arrested, but it was unclear what punishment they are likely to face.
Abbas Hosseini-Pouya, prosecutor general of Ahvaz, the provincial capital of Khuzestan, said Mona had sent photos of herself to her husband from Turkey that had fuelled his “negative emotions,” according to Iran International.
The Women’s Committee said that “not a week goes by without some form of honour killing making headlines.
The regime’s failure to criminalise these murders has led to a catastrophic rise in honour killings.
“In a report published in 2019, the state-run Sharq daily newspaper wrote that an annual average of 375 to 450 honour killings are recorded in Iran,” the resistance council said.
“The catastrophic rise in honour killings in Iran is rooted in misogyny and the patriarchal culture institutionalised 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 said.
Meanwhile, the state-run news agency Rokna was reportedly shut down after it published the shocking video.
