Public Execution in Iran: Everyone knows how severe the punishments are for crimes in an Islamic country. An eye for an eye, an arm for an arm, a life for a life, there are methods of punishment. Currently, in countries like Iraq, Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia and UAE, death sentences are being carried out openly. No matter how many times international rights organizations complain about this, it is of no use. Many rights organizations are calling for an end to these medieval methods of capital punishment.
Meanwhile, two years later, the government of Iran openly executed the death penalty. In February 2022, a man named Iman Sabzikar was hanged on the spot for murdering a police officer in the southern city of Shiraz, Iran, according to the Norwegian NGO Iran Human Rights. Earlier this month, Iran’s Supreme Court upheld Sabzikar’s death sentence for murdering a police officer. He was recently hanged in front of people on Sunday morning.

Rights organizations have alleged that Iran has resumed public executions to intimidate people from protesting. They are angry that they are carrying out medieval punishments. In fact, in Iran, crimes such as rape, murder and drug smuggling are punishable by death in prison. But if the officers are killed, they are publicly hanged at the place where they were killed. He was publicly hanged for the last time in Iran on June 11, 2020. The court there also sentenced four persons to death for killing police officers separately. There is a possibility that they will also be hanged in public soon.
