an obligate mother


An obligate mother.
Her name was mina and she was an illiterate woman and when she was a kind mother she became obligate to kill her daughter.
She had a 17 years old daughter. She was poor and also her husband was dead in a suicide attack. They lived in a village by the name of Malestan. Because she was illiterate and she faced with lots of adversity she liked her daughter and her 2 sons to be educated. Her first child was maryam that she was 17 years old. She was beautiful and kind girl. The landlord son loved her but she didn’t love him and she just like to study and she didn’t accept him. One day the landlord son find her in the mountains she went there to bring water and when he saw her he told her that she should accept him but maryam didn’t. Then he hit her with a big stone and maryam insensible then he exceeding on her. When maryam opened her eyes she find her self in the mountains with out clothes and every body was looking her when her mother understand she became so sad and she couldn’t bear that and she killed her daughter. This is not because her mother didn’t love her daughter this is because she was obligate because she knew that she cannot do anything against the landlord son.

no words can express the deep

no words can express the deep , deep sadness i feel for this poor woman . her heart would be totally shattered all because a MAN wanted VIOLENCE . How can so called religeon create so much fear , create so much brainwashing that it ( the so called religeon) can lead to the innocent suffering while a MAN and his violence is tolerated . this is exactly why the late magic man of words n song , John Lennon said ( Imagine) NO RELIGEON TOO

Oh , I feel so much for this loving mother .
