Honor killings are all the rage in the Islamic Republic of Iran.
It should come as no surprise that Iranian police investigating a Muslim man who paraded down the street with the severed head of his teenage wife and mother of their 3-yr-old child, in one hand, and the bloody knife he used to sever it in the other, would say her murder was simply related to “family differences.”
The now-viral video reveals a smiling Iranian male carrying a knife in one hand and the severed head of his 17-year-old wife/cousin. The beheaded teenage woman was forced to marry the proud murderer when she was only 12-years-old.
NYP reports – The gruesome footage shows Sajjad Heydari strolling through a neighborhood in Ahvaz, a city in the southwestern province of Khuzestan, on Saturday with Mona Heydari’s head in one hand and a blade in the other, East2West News reported.
***WARNING***Video is graphic:
She reportedly suffered domestic abuse but was pressured to stay put for the sake of their 3-year-old son, even though she had expressed her wish to divorce the brute.
The news outlet reported that the teen finally escaped to Turkey but returned after finding it tough to live alone in another country.
A few days later, Sajjad and his brother allegedly tied her hands and chopped off her head. Her body was dumped before her husband paraded through the streets with her head.
