1986 – The Stoning of Soraya M in Iran

In 1986, a young wife and mother, Soraya M, was stoned to death in Iran. Her wicked, lying husband conspired to have her accused of adultery so he could marry a 14 year old girl.

He was violent towards his wife during their marriage and he adulterated his marriage with prostitutes.

A journalist happened on the village where the stoning took place the day after the horror, and Soraya’s aunt told him of the fate that befell her niece, despite her desperate attempts to save her life.

The journalist recorded the aunt’s testimony and, later, wrote a book about Soraya.

The book became a film and it can be viewed at the following link,

Be warned, the film is harrowing to watch as it graphically depicts the slow, agonising death by stoning, of an innocent woman.
