Scotland: Muslim Man Burns Ex-Wife To Death For Being Too “Westernized”
Qur’an Sura 4:34a, “Men have authority over women because [Allah] has made the one superior to the other… Good women are obedient… As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them…”
Or burn them, apparently …
Ahdeih Khayatzadeh, 46, suffered 95 per cent burns in the attack by Ahmad Yazdanparast at the Venus Hair & Beauty salon in the centre of Stirling last October.
The two-week trial at the High Court in Edinburgh heard that 61-year-old Yazdanparast used petrol to set fire to the mother-of-three. He will be sentenced at a later date.
Detective Inspector Bryan Burns said last night: ‘The horrific nature and consequences of this crime has had an immeasurable impact on Ahdeih’s family and I would like to praise their strength, courage and support.
‘I would also like to thank those members of the community in Stirling who helped at the scene of this tragic incident and those who came forward after our appeal for witnesses.
‘The many people who responded so promptly and positively did much to assist the investigation.
‘Our thoughts remain with Ahdeih’s family during this difficult time.’
Earlier, the judge, Lady Wise, told Yazdanparast that he had been convicted of the murder of his wife in ‘a horrific attack’.
She said only one sentence could be imposed – life in prison…
Advocate depute Tim Niven-Smith told jurors: ‘He wasn’t being listened to, he wasn’t being obeyed.
‘He lost control of his wife and he murdered her.’
Yazdanparast, who told his trial that he was ‘a British Muslim’, said that in Iran the man was superior to the woman and had authority over her, but his wife was superior to him.
He said she was not listening or co-operating and was becoming ‘westernised’.” Read more.
