Tragic Honor Killing Sheds Light on Ongoing Issue in Chaladar Village

Once again, the media has been rocked by the heart-wrenching news of yet another woman’s life cut short in the name of what is tragically referred to as “honor.” Kobri Yaqoubi, a 25-year-old mother of a six-year-old child hailing from Chaladar (Houzkati), a village within Nowshahr city in Mazandaran, met a tragic end at the hands of her own husband.

Informed sources reveal that Yadullah Kamali, Kabri’s spouse, brazenly invaded the woman’s father’s residence on the night of August 9th, wielding a cold weapon. The attack left Kobri Yaqoubi with a devastating total of 12 deep wounds across her side, stomach, and back before her assailant fled the scene. Despite undergoing multiple surgeries following her hospitalization, the severity of her injuries proved insurmountable, leading to her tragic passing on the night of August 15th.

Further information from reliable sources paints a complex picture. Kabri’s husband has been grappling with a severe drug addiction. Tragically, the loss of her father last year led Kobri Yaqoubi to return to her mother’s home two months ago to finalize the legal procedures for her divorce.

These disturbing occurrences underline the urgent need to address the anti-feminist and regressive laws affecting women’s rights within the Islamic Republic. The perpetuation of anti-feminist ideologies among men, coupled with the daily erosion of women’s dignity due to the implementation of inhumane laws, contributes to a troubling pattern of violence that ultimately ends in honor killings.

As advocates for justice, we are committed to putting an end to the cycle of “honor” killings. We firmly declare that women are not commodities to be defined by concepts of “honor.” Our campaign resonates with the message that women’s lives hold immeasurable value, and it’s high time we collectively stand against this heinous crime.
