    Afghanistan : Taliban execute pregnant woman

    Taliban execute pregnant woman in Afghanistan
    (AFP) – 1 day ago

    HERAT, Afghanistan — The Taliban publicly flogged and then executed a pregnant Afghan widow by firing three shots into her head for alleged adultery, police said on Monday.

    Bibi Sanubar, 35, was kept in captivity for three days before she was shot dead in a public trial on Sunday by a local Taliban commander in the Qadis district of the rural western province Badghis.

    The Taliban accused Sanubar of having an "illicit affair" that left her pregnant. She was first punished with 200 lashes in public before being shot, deputy provincial police chief Ghulam Mohammad Sayeedi told AFP.

    "She was shot in the head in public while she was still pregnant," Sayeedi said.

    Sayeedi said a local Taliban commander, Mohammad Yousuf, carried out the execution before the woman's body was dumped in an area under government control.

    The execution is a grim reminder of the Taliban's harsh six-year rule, from 1996 to 2001 in Afghanistan. The radical Islamists staged public stonings or lashings of those found to have committed adultery or sex outside marriage.

    The then-Taliban government would also chop off the hands and feet of those accused of theft and robbery.

    But a Taliban spokesman denied Monday that the militia was responsible for Sanubar's death.

    "We have not done anything like that in Badghis or any other province," said Qari Yosuf Ahmadi, calling the report "propaganda" by foreigners and the Western-backed Afghan government.

    The Taliban is not a unified national movement and small groups operate shadow government structures autonomously in pockets of the insurgent south.

    The man who allegedly had an affair with Sanubar was not punished.

    Head of Badghis provincial council Mohammad Nasir Nazaari confirmed the execution and said the Qadis district was entirely under Taliban control.

    The deputy head of the religious council for western Afghanistan, Mohammad Kabaabiani, said the execution ran counter to Islamic principles.

    Head of the Afghan Independent Human Rights Commission in western Afghanistan, Abdul Qadir Rahimi, condemned the killing.

    "Any such trial is unacceptable and is a violation of human rights. All trials must take place in an authorised court observing every single measure of justice," said Rahimi.

    Since their ouster in 2001, the hardline Taliban militants have executed many people they accused of spying for foreign forces, including at least one woman who was shot dead in Kandahar.

    The insurgents last year publicly executed a young couple accused of eloping in Nimroz province, by firing squad in front of a mosque.

    Mullah Daoud, a senior Taliban commander, told the Times that he was one of three who sat in judgment of Sanubar.

    "There were three mullahs that passed this verdict. I was one of them," he said. "We gave this decision so that in future no one should have these illegal affairs. We whipped her in front of all the local people, to show them an example. Then we shot her."

    The deputy police chief in Badghis, Ghulam Mohammad Sayeedi, confirmed the shooting to AFP. He said Sunabar's body was dumped afterwards in an area under Afghan government - not Taliban - control.

    I feel it is a shame that muslim people who oppose these extremists dont shout a bit louder. It might stop all muslims being tarred with the same brush.

    Seems fair

    ^"Daft bastards" doesn't effectively cover it, but 'in-humane scum puss' does.

    that was over 20 years ago, we haven't burn any sheep since, get over it

    as for eating horse, I don't see the issue, are you some kind of animal activist ?

    A good point IMO. It's almost as if the non radical muslims tacitly support the actions of the radicals by their ominous silence. Can anything be inferred by this ?
    Perhaps its an expression of apathy by the silent majority of muslims. But that is not how it is percieved in Western secular society. What is needed is more frequent condemnations of Islamic fundamentalism from less radical muslims.

    Sadly, its a case of ' don't hold your breath ' from which you have to draw your own conclusions.

    I'd advise against it, it's fecking horrible.
    Don't really know what to compare it too, it's been over 30 years since I've last tasted it.

    That's you and on this forum.

    As long as the Mohammed caricatures bring millions of Muslims into the streets and this kind of atrocity does not I blame every single Muslim for it.

    Foals make good eating, tender and sweet if a little greasy.
    Older horses are usually tough as boot leather and taste like over cooked mutton coated in engine oil.
    Hedgehogs are your best bet for Pikie fodder and you can pick them up for free, wrap them live in clay about 2" thick and throw them in a fire for an hour, crack it open and enjoy.
    Pikies call this little delicacy Hotchipig pie

    Sorry that was off topic; Yeah bad news these muslim extreamists, fear is a great way to
    controll the masses eh.
    It wasn't me!

    This happens all over the world, it used to happen in Europe in up until the early 20th century.

    I wouldn't recommend it, it has a very strong taste, originally for the steak tartare
