Taliban leader says women will be stoned to death in public

via WION

The Taliban’s supreme leader Mullah Hibatullah Akhundzada vowed in a rare public message to implement harsh punishments like public floggings and stonings of women for adultery, which have been condemned by the UN.

He declared the Taliban would continue fighting Western democracy and imposing their strict interpretation of Sharia law.

“You say it’s a violation of women’s rights when we stone them to death,” Akhundzada said.

“But we will soon implement the punishment for adultery. We will flog women in public. We will stone them to death in public,” he said.

Akhundzada said women’s rights advocated by the West went against Sharia and the clerics who overthrew Western democracy.

“These are all against your democracy but we will continue doing it. We both say we defend human rights – we do it as God’s representative and you as the devil’s,” Akhundzada said.

“Do women want the rights that Westerners are talking about? They are against Sharia and clerics’ opinions, the clerics who toppled Western democracy,” he said.

“I told the Mujahedin that we tell the Westerners that we fought against you for 20 years and we will fight 20 and even more years against you,” he said.

“It did not finish [when you left]. It does not mean we would now just sit and drink tea. We will bring Sharia to this land,” he added. “It did finish after we took over Kabul. No, we will now bring Sharia into action.”

Some Afghan women expressed outrage, calling the international community to increase pressure on the Taliban, saying the current situation leaves them feeling imprisoned as new restrictions are imposed daily, stripping away freedoms and hope.

“The money that they receive from the international community as humanitarian aid is just feeding them against women,” one former civil servant said.

“As a woman, I don’t feel safe and secure in Afghanistan. Each morning starts with a barrage of notices and orders imposing restrictions and stringent rules on women, stripping away even the smallest joys and extinguishing hope for a brighter future,” she added.

“We, the women, are living in prison,” she said, “And the Taliban are making it smaller for us every passing day.”
