It has been brought to light that in the recent State sponsored murder that took place in Iran the son of the victim, Laheh, has acted as the executioner and pulled the chair to hang Shahla.
But first let me condemn the vast killing and murder by IRI, whether it has been done in the name of justice and in criminal cases or in private and covert operation and in so many prisons to the brave Iranians that their only crime was to speak their mind and stand up to tyranny and dictatorship.
I know this is probably going to bring much heated emotions nevertheless, as I was reading the news about who actually "pulls the plug" in an execution in Iran… I asked myself, in all this madness, who should really carry out the execution?
Should this be a job of a state employee or those who insist on death "capital punishment"?
Knowing that there have been many innocent people executed for the crime they never committed, why should that guilt be on the conscience of a state employee and not those who insist on taking the life.
I think it is only fair and just to expect those who hold the life in their vote and give the verdict whether by a jury system as in the West or thru ghesas in Iran (Islamic system), those who insist on taking a life also should carry it out. Let the guilt or retribution be on the conscience of those who hold the life in hand and have the power to take or give it back.
Lets not ask a State employee to commit to murder and have it on his conscience. But better yet, lets abolish this barbaric law/tradition once and for all.
