Outrage As Teen Who Eloped With Older Man Is Killed By Her Father In 'Honour Killing'

Sad story!






The killing of an Iranian teen by her father after she eloped with an older man sparked outrage on Wednesday, with local media denouncing "institutionalised violence" in "patriarchal" Iran.

Iranian media covered the apparent "honour" crime extensively, with Ebtekar newspaper leading its front page with the headline "Unsafe father's house".

According to local media, Romina Ashrafi was killed in her sleep on May 21 by her father, who decapitated her in the family home in Talesh in northern Gilan province.

The reports said her father had refused her permission to marry a man fifteen years her senior, spurring her to run away, but she was returned home after her father reported her.

The legal marriage age in Iran is 13 for women.

Iranian media reported that after authorities detained the teenager, she told a judge she feared for her life if she was returned to home.

But what most outraged public opinion was the lenient punishment the father is likely to face, Ebtekar wrote.

The newspaper notes that Iran's normal "eye for an eye" retributive justice does not apply to fathers who kill their children.

Accordingly, he is likely to face three to 10 years in prison, a sentence that could be reduced further, the newspaper wrote, denouncing the "institutionalised violence" of Iran's "patriarchal culture".

With the farsi hashtag #Romina_Ashrafi focusing outrage on Twitter, President Hassan Rouhani "expressed his regrets" in a cabinet meeting on Wednesday, pleading for the speedy passing of several anti-violence bills, his office said.

    1. This story is very sad. One the older man took advantage of her. What business dose a 13yr old have with a man of over 30. Please no body should tell me it's their religion. Then the father failed her greatly. Not only hee father but the entire country. So sad,rest in peace child. To be a poor Muslim as a girl child is really hard.

  7. It's bad enough that 13 is the legal age, but then he had to behead her. She said she feared for life, but they still allowed her to return to her house. All these their "honour killings", I smh. May she rest in peace.

  10. What's honourable about killing your own child because she ran away with a man? If you're so honour inclined, why didn't you just kill yourself?

  11. If killing your own daughter is the punishment the father feels she deserves then i wonder what he truly feels he deserves as his own punishment for murder😩

    if he receives a lighter sentence for such an horrible act then that the same HONOR KILLING kill all of them thereπŸ™„

  12. Honour killing, underage marriage are some of the many societal ills which feminism fights. Rest in peace young one.
    As long as patriarchy exists and is acceptable in a society, tragedies like this would keep happening.
    He would get a slap on the wrist because fathers like him on that society would likely do same.

  13. I don't think any meaningful law will be passed. The president is just doing eye service. This practice is synonymous with their religion.

    1. Killing and violence is not synonymous to Islam.
      Some ppl are bad some cultural practices are wrong but the religion is not
      Islam literally means religion of peace.
      What this man did is horrible and is completely unacceptable in Islam.

  14. Every damn thing is wrong with that religion. This are the things Islamic feminist women are fighting for tooth and nail and being killed for daily in the middle east. Even in Northern Nigeria.
    Yet some idiots that still dont know what feminism is all about will keep talking trash.

  15. Her age was not mentioned in the story

    But if 13 is the marriageable age in their country, the why was the girl returned after she eloped? So he wanted her back just to kill her?
    Why didn't he leave her with the man.

    He is a very wicked father,

    The things God would judge in this world eh e no get part 2, sometimes I feel the heart of man is even more evil than the devil himself
