Contributing sentiments towards policy:

53% : Iran is second to China as the country with the most executions carried out annually.
46% : Following Rahnavard's execution, Gholam Sadeghi, chief justice of Khorasan Razavi, thanked law enforcement for "performing their legal duties in the shortest possible time, as well as the officials and the judicial review board, who handled this case quickly, responding to public demands for order and security, and dealing with rioters and lawbreakers," according to the three principles of correctness, accuracy, and fairness.
44% : Following Shekari's conviction, the judiciary's spokesman, Masoud Setayeshi, stated that anyone who uses a "cold or warm weapon with the intent of harming the life, possessions, or family of people or terrorising them" could be charged with moharebeh, or "waging war against God," which carries the death penalty.
39% : After the death of Mahsa Amini, a Kurdish woman from the northwestern city of Saqez, who was said to have been arrested by morality police on September 13 for not wearing a proper hijab, Iran has been experiencing its largest uprising in decades.
39% : Foreign-based human rights organisations have said more than 450 people have been killed during the protests, which is higher than the death toll of 200 provided by Iran.
36% : The announcement comes just days after Iran announced the country's first public execution of someone convicted of a crime related to the country's ongoing protests.
23% : Shekari, like Rahnavard, was found guilty of "waging war against God" after allegedly stabbing a security officer with a knife and closing down a street in Tehran, Iran.
