Iranian-American human rights activist Masih Alinejad exposed horrific case of honor killing in Iran.
As you can see in the video below, an innocent woman who was raped by an Iranian MP, was found dead after she exposed the rapist.
It is believed that the authorities along with her family members murdered her to punish her for violating "Islamic modesty code".
According to estimates nearly 30% of Iranian murder cases are ‘Honor Killings’.
Every year women and girls all over the Asia and Africa are burned, beaten, or stabbed to death by family members because they are seen as having transgressed social codes of "honor."
According to Islamic tradition, the "honor" of the entire family is measured by women's behavior. Any action that may be perceived as harming the family's honor may cost the woman her life. In other words, a woman is required not only to obey Islam including its strict codes of modesty but also to completely obey her male guardians (husband, father, brother and even uncle).
