Whipping in Iran
By Micah Halpern

Tuesday October 11, 2011

I've Been Thinking:

Peyman Aref is a student at Tehran University.
Aref was recently released from an Iranian prison. He was in prison after being found guilty of anti-government political activity.

Aref was lashed 74 times when he was released. It was for a completely different crime. That crime was the crime of insulting President Ahmadinejad.

Aref had written a letter to the president and did not begin in the customary manner by writing "Salaam," which means "peace upon you."

Because he did not use the proper greeting or salutation he was given 74 lashes - with a whip.

Crime and punishment in Iran are incomprehensible to the Western mind.
