18-year-old Behnam Zare’ is at risk of imminent execution for a murder committed when he was 15 years old. Iran remains one of just a handful of countries that continue to execute child offenders – people under 18 years old at the time of their crime, despite its obligations under international law.
Child offender Behnam Zare’ is now facing execution within 72 hours. The order to carry out his execution has been sent to the prison where he is held.

Re: Stop the execution of Behnam Zare’
I am sure that Allah would not accept such execution of minor people.
This is not only against present humanatarian laws, but also against the essence of the Holy Quran.
Kindly conform to the Allah’s Will by revoking the execution.
