Yeah, I'd imagine that life as a woman in Zoroastrian Persia was (potentially) hellish. In case you didn't know, the Roman custom of crucifixion was originally Persian. They had some other hellishly cruel execution methods as well and some generally barbarous customs which are still in existence today. And the whole area was under one empire east of the Roman Empire, the Parthian Empire, all of which was Zoroastrian, so this was going on all over.

it wouldnt suprise me if they sentenced her to rape by the "judges" friends and then be killed, like they did with that other girl.

This was a while ago, im not sure of the details, but an Iran man commited some crime and to punish him, the courts sentenced his sister to gang rape by the judges! I shit you not, it was in the paper a while ago.

That was in northwestern Pakistan, and it was not "judges" but tribal elders (who in this case also happened to be thug warlords from the local ruling clan, more aptly a junta really) who assigned and carried out the "sentence". And the "man" who committed this "crime" was a teenage boy from a local underdog clan, framed on trumped-up charges of seducing a girl from said ruling clan. In reality, what happened was that he himself had been raped and beaten by the thug warlords' buddies, who then turned around and did the same to his sister when the boy's family tried to raise a fuss over it.

And who was it who ultimately gambled his reputation, stuck out his neck, and pushed this case into the global media spotlight and the *real* courts in Islamabad (where the case is still pending)? The local imam.

Again--per my earlier post in this thread--this kind of ruthlessness has ancient, and indisputably pre-Islamic, roots in this part of the world.

This is simply disturbing, uncivilized, barbaric, f'd up, backwards, wrong, sad, disgusting, pathetic, and I don't think Karma wants to go anywhere near this. Brrrrrrrrr, gives me shivers just to think about a poor girl being hanged for defending herself during HER horrific rape.

?? I don't understand this comment. Under what circumstances do women get blamed for rape?

In many circumstances in the US, women are still blamed-the way they dress, they went to the guy's apartment/hotel room/dorm room, they were drunk, they led the guy on, they kissed the guy-a myriad of reasons.

In the Middle East they blame everything that goes wrong in a relationship on the woman. It's an ancient custom, as yolland points out.

yeah that's true... When I was in HS there was a rumor about a girl who was almost raped by a neighbour, some of the other girls said things like "if she weren't so flirty maybe that wouldn't happen". It is sad to see that even some women can think that way
