Yet another brutal Muslim honor murder.
‘We had an hour to say goodbye. She was so badly burned we were told we couldn’t look at her face’: Agony of daughters of woman burnt to death for being ‘too Westernised’ by Muslim ex-husband
- Ahdieh Khayatzadeh, 46, was set alight by her Muslim ex-husband
- Suffered 95 per cent burns in horror attack at her salon in Stirling, Scotland
- Her twin daughters today speak for the first time since losing their mother
- ‘It is like the worst nightmare you can’t wake up from’ Gloria, 20, said
- Her father Ahmad Yazdanparast, 61, was found guilty of murder last week
Just an hour before she died in agony from horrific burn injuries, Ahdieh Khayatzadeh’s 20-year old twin daughters, Gloria and Glara, were allowed into intensive care to say one last, heart-breaking goodbye.
But before they got to her bedside, a nurse warned them both: ‘Close your eyes. Don’t look.’
Their 46-year old mother, her only crime to have become ‘westernised’ in the eyes of her Muslim ex-husband, had suffered 95 per cent burns in a shocking attack, leaving her so unrecognisable that paramedics at the scene couldn’t tell if she was a man or a woman.
Trauma: Twins Glara, left, and sister Gloria who lost their mother when their father set her alight at her beauty salon in Stirling. Gloria said the tragedy was ‘like the worst nightmare you can’t wake up from’
For anyone seeing a parent in this state it would be traumatic beyond belief.
For Gloria and Glara, the tragedy is harder to bear because the person responsible for killing their mother is their father, Ahmad Yazdanparast, 61.
Last Tuesday, at the High Court in Edinburgh, he was found guilty of murdering Ahdieh at her beauty salon in Stirling in October last year.
