Executions → Execution of Gay Teens in Iran (July 19, 2005)
Two gay teenagers Mahmoud Asgari and Ayaz Marhoni were hanged in public in the Iranian city of Mashhad on July 19, 2005. Photos of the execution released by Iranian Students News Agency showed the two teens crying in the truck driving them to the gallows in Edalat (Justice) Square.
The case had considerable global resonance. Iran has been under fire by international human rights groups for executing those teenagers for almost one year. But there were some interesting facts regarding this case. The first one is that Ayaz and Mahmoud were caught by Iranian Police during having anal sex with a 13 year old boy. Because the age of consent for men in Iran is 15, this 13 year old boy was automatically then classified raped by Mahmoud and Ayaz. So, in the eyes of the Iranian law, that boy was raped! The second one was those teens were aged 18 and 19 (death penalty is forbidden in Iran for those under the age of 18 at the time of their crime; almost no one wrote about this in mass media). The father of the 13 year old boy also officially claimed his son was raped.
|i go to war to stop iran or drow the fucking bom on them to day and wher was this god |
|Let's invade Iran, exterminate all these fucking muslims and bring justice to the unlucky people were born there!|
|It is good to see that some sound minds visit this web site, and express humanities shame at such brutal treatment, and state orchestrated murder. The ding bats that write in cruel and unhealthy comments, reflect mans inhumanity to man, the cause of such cruelty. Hopefully the 21st century will come to offer justice to all. Mahmoud & Ayaz as youth martyrs to religious violence and intolerance, may yet light a path to a better world.|
|It saddens and sickens me that in the 21st century, people are still being killed for being homosexual. As a homosexual myself, I have faced some persecution, but thankfully not to this extreme. However if being homosexual ever became a capital offence in my country, I would be executed. I will not hide my sexuality! I will not be forced to be someone I am not! We are all human beings, let us accept that common ground and live our lives!|
|FUCK ALL TOWELHEADS/SAND NIGGERS! DEATH AT THE HANDS OF THE MARINES! YEAH!|
