According to sources, this was the last picture Elnaz Babazadeh uploaded as her Facebook profile picture.

According to HRANA, Elnaz Babazadeh, a 26 year old woman was raped and murdered by Basij forces in the city of Tabriz (northwestern Iran) last week. According to the reports, Basij forces stopped Babazadeh in her car for not following the Iranian regime’s dress code. Elnaz resisted and ignored orders given by the Basij forces.

Then the Basij forces who had initially stopped her jumped into her car and threatened her with a gun. Two other Basij members joined in and all together they beat and raped her. They murdered Babazadeh and dumped her body close to Emamiyeh cemetery.

After local investigation was conducted by HRANA members in Tabriz, it was confirmed at Babazadeh’s funeral that the person who killed her was the son of a high-ranking Revolutionary Guards member.

The intentions of the savage Basij members was to put a stop to the “improper” way women in society dressed. Basij members believe this is their duty to God.

Elnaz Babazadeh’s family filed a complaint against the murder of their daughter to regime officials, but the IRGC is attempting to take over the case.

هرانا؛ قتل یک دختر جوان در تبریز پس از تجاوز نیروهای بسیج به وی

يكشنبه 20 تیر 1389 ساعت 09:57 |

خبرگزاری هرانا – هفته ی گذشته یک دختر جوان به نام الناز بابارده، توسط نیروهای بسیج پس از تجاوز به قتل رسید.

بنا به اطلاع گزارشگران هرانا، یکی از نیروهای بسیج به بهانه ی بد حجابی، با سد کردن راه خودرو الناز ب. در منطقه ولیعصر تبریز دستور توقف و به اصطلاح “اصلاح حجاب” وی را می دهد که با مقاوت این دختر جوان مواجه می شود.

فرد مذکور پس از مشاهده ی چنین وضعی، با کشیدن سلاح و تهدید وارد خودروی خانم الناز ب. می شود و بلافاصله پس از آن دوتن دیگر از نیروهای لباس شخصی نیز وارد خودرو می شوند.

این سه تن پس از ضرب و شتم وحشيانه و تعرض و تجاوز جنسی به اين دختر جوان 26 ساله وی را با شلیک گلوله به قتل می رسانند و جسد را در اطراف گورستان اماميه تبريز رها مي كنند.

پس از تحقیقات محلی گزارشگر خبرگزاری حقوق بشر ایران، نهایتا در ختم الناز ب. مشخص می شود که فرزند يكي از سرداران پاسدار ایشان را به قتل رسانده و انگيزه ی خود از قتل و تجاوز را مبارزه با بد حجابي و انجام فرمان خدا اعلام كرده است!

خانم الناز ب. ساكن كوي وليعصر تبريز بوده است. خانواده ایشان از مسببان حادثه شکایت کرده اند اما منابع مطلع در گفتگو با هرانا مدعی شده اند كه سپاه تبريز در تلاش است تا در پرونده ی این جنایت اعمال نفوذ كند.

لازم به ذکر است اخیرا نیروهای امنیتی به بهانه ی برخورد با بدحجابی و اجرای طرح حجاب و عفاف، آزادی زنان در کشور را محدود تر از قبل کرده اند و فضایی مملو از رعب و وحشت برای ایشان ساخته اند.

    1. Barbaric animals is what you people are… animals act better! In the name of God? You people do whatever you want in the name of God… STOP or is your God the Devil? You people are the scum of the earth!

    2. Wow. This happened a year ago. Iran; I think about you everyday. I think about your freedom. Keep fighting, because you will win. I live in America, there is nothing I can do but pray for you, and study Islam so that I am able to understand how it is being misused. My heart goes out to the family of this poor woman. May her family see justice. FREE IRAN!

    3. It may tempt you when you see a woman not dressed modestly, but murder? really? Apparently you have no self-controll. She should not put the stumbling block before you, but you should not sin as well by rape and murder.
