07:36 - 30/4/2023
According to the reports received by Hana Human Rights Organization; In the early hours of Friday, April 29, 2023, two citizens named "Shrivan Hadizadeh", 24 years old, the daughter of Qadir, and "Hossein Hadizadeh", 27 years old, the son of Madani from the village of "Qzlakh" of the "Eland" district of Khoy, were killed with firearms with the motive of honor by Shrivan husband.
This informed source added that Mustafa Hadizadeh was a member of the Revolutionary Guards and killed his wife and cousin with a government weapon.
It should be mentioned; Femicide happens because of unequal power relations between men and women and the dominance of the patriarchal system. In a society dominated by a patriarchal culture, men have more power and dominate women. In such a society, women are humiliated and have less value, importance and rights, and are forced to submit and obey men and men's demands. In addition, in this culture, many requirements and dos and don'ts have been created for women, and violation of these requirements (known as norms) may result in violence against women and cost the woman's life. An example of which is the honor killings that have recently been published in the public arena. Another factor that leads to violence and murder of women is the lack of legal protection for women. No law has yet been passed to reduce violence against women, and existing laws do not provide the necessary deterrent to protect women's lives.
