Taliban kill couple in public stoning

A man and woman have been stoned to death in northern Afghanistan after being accused by the Taliban of having an affair.


The 23-year-old woman and 28-year-old man were killed because “they had an affair,” said Mohammad Ayob, the governor of Imam Sahib district in Kunduz province.

“Two people were stoned to death by Taliban in Mullah Quli village late yesterday,” he said. The village is under the control of the Taliban.

Mullah Quli resident Abdul Satar said about 100 people, most of them Taliban insurgents, gathered in the village on Sunday evening as a statement was read out saying the pair had confessed to their affair.

He said the man was married to someone else, and the woman was engaged.

“The Taliban convicted both to stoning to death, some from the crowd started throwing stones at the couple until they died,” Mr Satar said. (Telegraph UK/read the full story)

Of course there are many in Afghanistan who insist that stoning is the law of the land, as we can see here:

Afghanistan: Clerics twist Karzai’s arm for return to “strict Islamic law”

“No law can be contrary to the beliefs and provisions of the sacred religion of Islam” (Chapter 1, Article 3).

Thus, where there is any doubt or conflict in the Afghan government, Islamic law wins by constitutional fiat. What could possibly go wrong? Exactly what is reported in the story below: the demand for all the things we’ve been assured countless times don’t really happen in Sharia law, like stonings, floggings, and amputation, as well as execution for apostasy from Islam. But these Misunderstanders of Islam are digging in and demanding them.

  1. Jim,
    I can only agree – nice to see the muslim populations condemn these atrocities – oh wait a minute – they can’t. So why are they in our countries again???? Any muslim like to speak up??

  2. Like all of our folks in the services who put their lives on the line more often than we hear about, this young man did his job with honesty and honor and he and his family and loved ones deserve our thoughts and prayers. Another has given everything to protect what we understand as freedom, and, likewise, we should fíght to protect our freedoms in whichever way we can.

  3. Pull the plug on these bastards and just let them rot. Why should we spend another penny of these pigs. Our tax money can be used in many better ways and the lives of our young men fighting in that country could be saved for their families. Why should they offer their lives to help these people. They are just not worth it. They have to fight for their own country just as we have had to do in the past. Get off you ars Afghanistan.
