"People we assume innocent"

Dear Noga,

I’m sorry for the long delay. I missed you all.

Life is as busy as usual…but what keeps me from writing is the fact that i have promised my father to be careful and avoid politics as much as I can …

And yet …When people we assume innocent are dying …writing about other things doesn’t feel fair …

I was avoiding the English blog altogether for a while … I’ll be back soon. Thanks a million times for asking. It feels great to know someone out there reads this blog!

'This blog" belongs to Selma, a poet and translator, from Tehran.

Who are the innocent people?

I don't know what Selma is talking about. But I read this at Terry Glavin's place.

Truth be told, I'm almost afraid myself to write this post. A fanatical regime with an ever narrowing base of support, becomes even more crazy and brutal.


This is the story

Dear Noga,
In that comment and in my other blog post "Slipknot". I was very implicitly referring to the story of Fatemeh Pajouh who was charged with murder and I heard that she was hanged on Wednesday morning last week.
while trying to prevent her daughter from being raped by her step dad, Fatemeh had killed the man. There is a great deal of controversy over that, still ...I'd consider such person innocent ...

Thanks for the comment, Selma. Finally you managed to get through!

What a horrible story. What a nightmare for women everywhere. Whatever will happen to her poor defenceless daughter now?

I think your father is right.
