Zhila Izadyar is 13. She has been convicted of incest, and has a child with her brother. For this she faces death by stoning, and has already been lashed, as you can see. Her brother, meanwhile, is looking at 150 lashes and prison.
There have been an unusually high volume of attacks on me and Jihad Watch lately “” nothing unusual except in their virulence and brazen misrepresentations. But to those who might seriously think that this effort is born of bigotry should look carefully at the photo above. Then tell me that a human rights effort to defend human beings from jihad and Sharia is “bigoted.” From Iran-Focus News, with thanks to Susan:
Azad Zamani of the Society for the Protection of Children’s Rights has said that Zhila’s health has been rapidly deteriorating.
Zamani has managed to visit Zhila although under close supervision of the Iranian regime’s agents. Zamani stated that Zhila said, “I am scared; I want to go home; I want to be able to go back to school like other kids”.
Zhila was convicted of having an incestuous relationship with her 15-year-old brother and giving birth to an illegitimate child.
Zhila is reported to have been in a very bad state while she has had to spend time in solitary confinement under close guard. Zamani had reported that Zhila now has a very bad eating pattern and she constantly vomits.
Another source, who wished not to be named, said that Zhila has been beaten by guards while she in jail and has not been allowed to see her newborn child.
Reports have also come out that Zhila’s brother Bakhtiar has also been flogged in prison. Zhila faces death by stoning while Bakhtiar faces 150 lashes as well as prison time, according to the clerical judge who issued their verdict.
