Iranian Mother Who Forgave Son's Killer Says The Anger She Felt Has Left Her Heart

The Iranian woman who stopped the execution of her son's killer as the noose was placed around his neck has described how the rage she felt 'left her heart' when she slapped him. Indeed when you are able to let go and forgive, you set yourself free and fill your heart and life with peace.

Alinejad Hosseinzadeh, whose son Abdollah, 18, was murdered in a street fight, has described how she wanted her son's killer to die up until the final moments of his life. She said her son, who died 7 years ago, appeared to her in a dream 10 days before the execution and begged her to have mercy on his killer, known as Balal.

Alinejad was supposed to kick the chair away from under him, but in a dramatic last minute reprieve, asked the rope to be removed and slapped him. Her husband Abdolghan quickly lifted the noose and he was pardoned.. 'All these years, I felt like a moving dead body. But now, I feel very calm, I feel I'm at peace. I feel that vengeance has left my heart.' Despite the reprieve, Balal is still in jail. Under Iranian law, the victim's family can save a killer's life but cannot spare his prison term.
