A Culture of Death

Grand Ayatollah Montazeri, after receiving various reports from inside the prisons, wrote to Khomeini, "Do you know the crimes that are taking place in the jails of the Islamic Republic did not even take place during the Shah's regime? Many people have died due to torture." Khomeini dismissed the issue.

Mohsen Kadivar, an enlightened cleric, said it all too well; the dadgostari of the Shah's time was much more humane than all the courts of the Islamic Regime. In these courts, the innocent and the guilty are all mixed and the sentences are carried out swiftly. No time wasted. No stay of execution in almost all cases even if the Constitution of the Islamic Republic states otherwise.

for 2009 numbers Please see






388 (at least), with population of 74.2 million, the per capita was =0.000005



Even If we take the higher estimate for China (5000 executions) and with the population of 1.34 billion, the per capita was 0.000004


IRI's per capita for executions was higher than China in 2009
