Save Nazanin

I want to ask everyone a favour. This is about a girl who had to stab a man (of a group) who wanted to rape her. She was 17 at the time.

A criminal court of Islamic republic has sentenced her to be hanged.

January 3, 2006, 18-year-old Nazanin was sentenced to death for murder by court in Iran after she reportedly admitted fatally stabbing one of three men who attempted to rape her and her 16-year-old niece in a park in Karaj (a suburb of Tehran) in March 2005. She was seventeen at the time. Her sentence is subject to review by the Court of Appeal, and if upheld, to confirmation by the Supreme Court.

Remember This Name, One Nazanin for Another April 06, 2006
National Review Online
Q&A by Kathryn Jean Lopez



[url="http://www.bodogmusic.com/artists/nazanin.php"]Nazanin Afshin-Jam[/url] is not just another pretty face. This former Miss World Canada — 2003 runner-up to the Miss World pageant — who will have her first album out this summer, has much more on her mind than her music and her cosmetics bag. Nazanin is a native of Iran. She recently heard about a young woman — with whom she shares both a nativeland and a name — who has been sentenced to death in Iran for killing a man in self-defense when she and her niece were being assaulted (the men were trying to rape them). Nazanin has since adopted the cause of her namesake.

Nazanin recently spoke to National Review Online editor Kathryn Lopez about young Nazanin — who Lopez wrote about [url="http://www.nationalreview.com/lopez/lopez200603080844.asp"]here[/url] — and the plight of the Iranian people, as well as Ms. Afshin-Jam's career and Persian roots.

Kathryn Jean Lopez: Why are you worrying yourself with this Iranian girl, Nazanin's, fate?

Nazanin: When I first heard about Nazanin I was horrified. I instinctively thought, “It could have been meâ€
