A "Madhuri" Was Murdered

Charles Johnson:

Here’s a documentary from BBC2, on the appalling execution by Iran of a 16-year old girl, Atefah Sahaaleh, for violating shari’a law. LGF covered this story of medieval misogyny in 2004: Justice in the Islamic Republic.

Here's the direct link to the video. Be warned, there you'll find gruesome images of hangings, lashings and public stonings.

(Atefah was very pretty like Madhuri--an Indian actress. One can see a poster of Madhuri at the three-minute point.)
