IRAN: Christian sentenced to have his lips burnt with a cigarette for eating in the daytime during Ramadan
 

The barbaric punishment was carried out in public in a square in the city of Kermanshah. Five other Muslim men were also flogged in public with 70 lashes for not fasting during during the month of Ramadan.

 
UK Daily Mail (h/t Susan K)

 A spokesperson from The National Council of Resistance of Iran, a political coalition which opposes the government, denounced the treatment as ‘savage’ and called on western countries to take action.

They said: ‘The silence of the world community, especially of western countries, vis-à-vis these medieval punishments under the excuse of having nuclear talks with Iran has intensified the brutal and systematic violation of human rights in Iran. ‘This will ultimately embolden the Iranian regime to continue its nuclear projects more than before.’

But earlier this year the UN blasted Iran for the persecution of Christians in a damning report laid bare to the world in March.

There are an estimated 250,000 Christians in Iran’s 76 million strong population. They all face torture, imprisonment or the death sentence under Sharia law for not observing Islamic religious festivals and dress codes.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.

Let's all just imagine for a moment the outcry from libs/progs if a muslim was punished for ignoring Christian religious practices - such as wearing ashes on Ash Wednesday.

If a majority of Iranians want those rules, so be it. Let them have their society, however primitive it is.

But the West ought to assist to people that wish to escape it, permanently.
