According to a Taliban official, these people were accused of theft, adultery, and gay sex. This was the second time in November that the Taliban had punished people in a public place for a crime.
Last month 19 people got such a punishment.
According to a BBC report, a similar case came to light from Takhar Province in Afghanistan last week. 19 people were punished for this. In Nuristan province, a woman was beaten for listening to music. In this way, punishing in public places started after the orders of the Supreme Leader of the Taliban, Hibatullah Akhundzada. All these punishments are being given according to Sharia law.
Know what is the Sharia law of Afghanistan
The Taliban had indicated in the press conference after overtaking Afghanistan that Sharia law would apply to many issues in the country. Sharia is like a legal system for the people who believe in Islam. There are laws on many big issues ranging from everyday life. Sharia is mentioned in the Quran, the holy book of Islam, and in the Sunna and Hadith, the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad. The offenses under these laws are considered to be directly defying God. Sharia law describes the way of life.
Violation of Sharia is punished severely.
All Muslims are expected to live their lives according to these laws. Sharia law governs every aspect of a Muslim’s daily life, including what to do and what not to do. Sharia includes laws related to family, finance, and business. Drinking, using, or smuggling drugs is one of the biggest crimes under Sharia law here. When a person breaks this law, it is considered a crime against God. This is the reason why there are strict punishment rules for these crimes.
