A 40-year-old woman sentenced to “retribution” in Iran was hanged in front of her daughters earlier this week, while four other accused men charged with murder received a pardon, according to a human rights group.

The woman identified as Behjat was sentenced to death for the alleged murder of her husband 10 years ago. She was hanged before an audience that included her two daughters, according to the group Iran Human Rights, which tracks human rights situation in Iran.

“One of the daughters was crying and calling for her mother, while the other daughter was asking for her execution,” according to IHR. “The execution was finally carried out by the victims father, Behjat’s father in law.”

At the same time, “the executions of four other prisoners charged with murder was stopped as they were pardoned by the families of the victims,” according to the report.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
