Amnesty International who campaign to end abuses of human right, has said that the death penalty has been passed on a large scale in Iran this year.
Human rights group Amnesty International this week accused Iran of having embarked upon a “horrific” execution spree in recent months, reportedly putting more than 250 people to death in the first six months of 20222-more than double the number executed over the equivalent period in the previous year.
The death penalty is increasing in Iran. So far this year, the number of death sentences has been doubled compared to last year.
Human rights groups say that domestic violence against women leads to such killings. But, the court of Iran does not pay attention to this.
