In order to allow executions of young girls to comply with Islamic law, Iran has guards “marry” them the night before they are due to be killed in order to deflower them and render the killing legal and holy, sources report.
The exposé comes by way of an interview with a member of Iran’s Basiji paramilitary, an organisation known for its loyalty to the Supreme Leader of the Islamic republic, Ayatollah Khamenei.
He explained that during his time in the organisation he was given the “honour” of deflowering young girls due to be executed so that Islamic law would not be contravened.
With it being illegal to execute virgin girls, the only logical step for the theocracy to take would be to circumvent the problem by removing their virginity with the aid of a “wedding” and subsequent rape the night before the execution.
Many of these brutalised maidens feared the rape more than the executions; the man explains his experience graphically:
“I regret that, even though the marriages were legal, because I could tell that the girls were more afraid of their ‘wedding’ night than of the execution that awaited them in the morning. And they would always fight back, so we would have to put sleeping pills in their food. By morning the girls would have an empty expression; it seemed like they were ready or wanted to die.
I remember hearing them cry and scream after [the rape] was over. I will never forget how this one girl clawed at her own face and neck with her finger nails afterwards. She had deep scratches all over her.”
Iran has naturally denounced the reports as Zionist propaganda: “It is obvious that releasing such blatant lies is only with the aim of hostility and animosity with Islam and the Islamic Republic of Iran.”
