According to media reports in Iran, Habib Barhi, a 30-year-old resident of Abadan in southwestern Iran confessed that he had beheaded his 19-year-old cousin, whom he had married a year earlier. He produced the murder weapon, a bloodied knife, and handed it over to police.
The Muslim husband told officers that he had left Fatima’s head in the Bahar area near the Bahman Shir River after separating it from the rest of her body. Fatemeh Barahi married her cousin last year in a forced marriage (The state-run ROKNA News Agency – June 16, 2020).
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).
