Brutal Sharia corporal punishment is once again part of everyday life in the Taliban’s Afghanistan

The exact location and time of the incidents have not been confirmed. But one thing is certain: The brutal scenes occurred under the Taliban regime, which has been using its medieval Sharia law since the takeover of power in Afghanistan in mid-August – in broad daylight, in the middle of the street, in front of everyone’s eyes. The new old rulers also publicly punish defenseless women. This after assurances to govern fairer and more just than before.

Similar barbaric scenes are known in the Arab and Islamic world, for example in Iran and Saudi Arabia, where people are sometimes even publicly executed. Sharia breakers were also publicly executed under the first Taliban regime from 1996 to 2001, including in the football stadium in Kabul.
