Taliban Co-Founder: Sharia Law Amputations and Executions Will Return to Afghanistan
Taliban leader Mullah Turabi: “We will follow Islam and we will make our laws on the Quran.”
The Taliban regime will bring back Sharia-mandated punishment by amputation and execution to Afghanistan, Islamic militia’s co-founder Mullah Nooruddin Turabi told the Associated Press.
The newly-established Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan will impose Sharia law in its entirety on the country’s population, Taliban’s former top Islamic law enforcer declared. As a sigh of moderation, the regime may now carry out these gruesome punishments away from the public eye, he added.
One-eyed and one-legged Taliban leader, Turabi, warned the international community not to interfere as they take Afghanistan back the Islamic Dark Ages. “No one will tell us what our laws should be. We will follow Islam and we will make our laws on the Quran,” Turabi asserted.
The AP reported Taliban leader’s comments:
One of the founders of the Taliban and the chief enforcer of its harsh interpretation of Islamic law when they last ruled Afghanistan said the hard-line movement will once again carry out executions and amputations of hands, though perhaps not in public.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Mullah Nooruddin Turabi dismissed outrage over the Taliban’s executions in the past, which sometimes took place in front of crowds at a stadium, and he warned the world against interfering with Afghanistan’s new rulers.
“Everyone criticized us for the punishments in the stadium, but we have never said anything about their laws and their punishments,” Turabi told The Associated Press, speaking in Kabul. “No one will tell us what our laws should be. We will follow Islam and we will make our laws on the Quran.” (…)
Turabi’s comments pointed to how the group’s leaders remain entrenched in a deeply conservative, hard-line worldview, even if they are embracing technological changes, like video and mobile phones.
“Cutting off of hands is very necessary for security,” he said, saying it had a deterrent effect. He said the Cabinet was studying whether to do punishments in public and will “develop a policy.”
During the Taliban’s previous rule, Turabi was chief of the Sharia enforcement and dreaded religious police. Under his watch, the regime carried out executions in public play grounds and amputated limbs for minor crimes. Afghan women were flogged and stoned to death for defying the Sharia Law.
Despite Taliban’s recent efforts to put the lipstick on the pig, their new reign appears to be no different from their previous rule. The Islamic terrorist militia is rounding up and executing its enemies and rivals across the country. Video and documented evidence shows Taliban fighters beheading soldiers and massacring unarmed civilians. Taliban commanders are demanding Afghan girls as young as 15 to be handed over as “brides” to their fighters.
As the Taliban brings back its reign of terror and regressive laws, jihadi group’s leaders want to be recognized as respectable statemen and legitimate rulers of Afghanistan. “The Taliban have asked to address world leaders at the United Nations in New York this week and nominated their Doha-based spokesman Suhail Shaheen as Afghanistan’s U.N. ambassador,” The Reuters reported earlier this week.

“The Taliban regime will bring back Sharia-mandated punishment by amputation and execution to Afghanistan”
This means it no longer must be carried out secretly but can now be done openly and publicly, i.e. photography allowed.
Praise be to Ollie. /s
He said offhandedly.
Well, I’ll be hanged…!
So Dang me, Dang me
They ought to take a rope and hang me
High, from the highest tree
The “Religion of Peace” is back! Are Bush, Clinton, Obama and Biden going to attend the first ceremonial beheading?
At which end of the sword would they be, I wonder?
Watched 12 Strong again yesterday, 20 years later and it will go right back to that. And we soon will have if not already 95,000 here of the same mindset.
Those poor women and children
I’ve never seen the show, but doesn’t this image evoke “Handmaid’s Tale” a bit more than Trump voters?
That’s different because diversity is our strength hate has no home here tax the rich respect vibrant cultures end white supremacy follow the science. Also because shut up.
I think they are simply defaulting the last sentence these days.
Yes, everything Democrats accuse Trump or Republicans of doing they, themselves do, or bring to the world.
THE BEATINGS WILL CONTINUE UNTIL MORALE IMPROVES.
‘Now entering Afghanistan, please set your clocks back 1100 years ‘
More like 1400 years of stagnation.
Biden deserves a Noble Prize.
Wow, did we fuck these people. I am so pissed
A couple questions
Who is ‘we’? I didn’t do a damn thing to advance the interests of the Taliban. Quite the contrary in fact so I decline to accept any of the collective guilt you seem to be assigning.
How ‘pissed’ are you? Enough to pick up a rifle, buy a plane ticket and go to Afghanistan to personally intervene? Anything less is not going to make any difference.
The way to make a difference would be to tote it somewhere quite different from Afghanistan.
Honestly, I do not care what they do to themselves as long as they keep it to themselves. It is up to the Afghans to have the sort of government they desire. If they wish to allow the Taliban to rule over them, so be it.
All I desire is they do not abet acts of barbarism upon the United States. Under the terms of the Treaty of Westphalia, the modern nation-state system holds all the people residing within the borders of a given state collectively responsible for its government. We should not attempt to try and sort them out between “good” Afghans and “bad” Afghans. This just makes war fighting extremely difficult.
If they should attack us again, either directly or via proxy, the entire nation and all its people must be held to account and held as responsible because since they are collectively responsible for their government, they in fact are. This will make war fighting in that country immeasurably more easy and though much more bloody, incentivize those Afghans who oppose the Taliban and all its evil to actively resist it and overthrow it, so they do not die by our vengeance.
A leopard never changes its spots. What they are doing is in their basic nature, and they have never pretended to be anything other than a 7th century pre-civilization society. That’s who they are.
A few of their leaders have talked like they would try to play nice, but those comments are no more valid than Biden’s description of his clumsy exit from Afghanistan. Pure fiction.
the header photo is stunning, disturbing–these are women (presumably all female) in the 21st century, on planet earth and this is how they’re treated–and, of course, children are murdered/dismembered/enslaved with impunity by the regime–and this is the “religion of peace?”
and fjb has declared them “partners” in all of this?–my god, what a dishonor to us all
I’m really not sure why this article is news. Dog bites man, sky still blue.
“One of the founders of the Taliban and the chief enforcer of its harsh interpretation of Islamic law”
Idiots and liars. This is not an “interpretation” of Islamic law. Amputation of the hand and foot on opposite sides (generally the right hand and left foot) is the prescribed punishment for theft.
