Skip to comments.Iran ready to move ahead with stoning or hanging of woman convicted of adultery

The case of Sakineh Ashtiani was moved to a back burner after her death sentence drew intense international scrutiny and criticism, not unlike how Youcef Nadarkhani's case is dragging on more quietly after similar international condemnation of his death sentence for apostasy from Islam. In both cases, Iran tried to come up with other excuses to execute them and erode support for them.
The murder charge against Ashtiani, which was applied later, seems to be an afterthought below, and it appears to be the adultery charge on which authorities are moving ahead. An update on this story. "Iranian woman convicted of adultery to be executed by stoning or hanging, official says," by Ali Akbar Dareini for the Associated Press, December 25:
TEHRAN, Iran - Authorities in Iran said Sunday they are again moving ahead with plans to execute a woman sentenced to death by stoning on an adultery conviction in a case that sparked an international outcry, but are considering whether to carry out the punishment by hanging instead.
Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani is already behind bars, serving a 10-year sentence on a separate conviction in the murder of her husband. Amid the international outrage her case generated, Iran in July 2010 suspended plans to carry out her death sentence on the adultery conviction.
On Sunday, a senior judiciary official said experts were studying whether the punishment of stoning could be changed to hanging.
"There is no haste. ... We are waiting to see whether we can carry out the execution of a person sentenced to stoning by hanging or not," said Malek Ajdar Sharifi, the head of justice department of East Azerbaijan province, where Ashtiani is jailed.

Gee, where are the cries and yells from the NOW nags?
Such hypocrisy — OK to have sexist murders in Iran (Islam) of women —
Where are the protests in front of the U.N. toilet in New York?
Just wait until Islam moves on to Hollywood. The big mouth celebs will be the first to get stoned in a different kind of way.
Nags care about three things and three things only:
1. Abortion "rights"
2. Lesbian "rights"
3. Getting dems elected to ensure the first two are kept intact.
Not right away though... they'll be kept around for awhile as they're handy to the causes of the dark side.. aka "useful idiots."
Islam is a cult.
The founder mohammed said: kill those who leave islam!
Bukhari :: Book 9 :: Volume 84 :: Hadith 57
mohammed created quran by himself from his own mouth!
but followers of a cult could not and still today cannot
figure that out.
All sharia laws, such as stoning to death etc were the result of
mohammed’s own crazy bubblings added by his later inner
The funny part is islam proclaims it is the continuation
of christianity! LOL. It even says Jesus is one of their
What did Jesus said when people brought a prostitute
in front of him, he said: those who have no sins should
cast the first stone! None did.
then 650 yrs later, mohammed erased all of Jesus’s
Islam is a garbage religion created by a madman,
a killer, a caravan raider etc etc mohammed that is!
NOW = The She-Man Republican Hater’s Club
Can we please nuke Mecca now?
There will be a religion war in europe, as those
weaklings in uk, france, scandinavia etc have succumbed
to those cult followers of islam.
However, people have their threshold
at some point, and groups such as EDL in uk, and another
similar one in france are starting to show some balls.
The cult followers hoping to get another caliphe in europe
will be sorely disappointed!
I figure burkhas are going to be the next big thing in fashion.
But you can only used three nukes
I would like little better than to see Londonistan and Nordicstan rise up and overthrow the Muslims.
I just don’t see it happening, that’s all.
Iran's execution cranes are driven from town to town - where people - often juveniles - are hung in open view in town squares. Iran is only second to Saudi Arabia in the proportion of the population that is executed each year.
If they had summarily hanged her, there wouldn't have been a peep about it in the Western Press.
They also do not have a gallows. There is no drop, just slow and painful strangulation.
They are no better than Nazis.
I dunno, jury is still out.....
