The state-run daily, Seday-e Edalat, reported yesterday that 13 women were flogged in the city of Qom. Among them were three pairs of sisters. They were each sentenced to 180 lashes.

Flogging women for "prostitution" and "drinking alcohol" and issuing these kinds of barbaric sentences against women come from mullahs who themselves run prostitution and drug trafficking rings and are involved in smuggling women and girls to neighboring countries. The Iranian Resistance has revealed the names of some of these mullahs.
The Women's Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran calls on international human rights and women's rights organizations to urge the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and the coming session of the General Assembly of the United Nations and other relevant international forums and organizations to take
effective measures and adopt resolutions condemning evil crimes of the mullahs against Iranian women.
