Afghanistan: Taliban will return to executions and amputations – World

The Taliban are preparing to resume the executions of those convicted of murder and the amputations of the hands and feet of those convicted of theft, although perhaps not in public: Nooruddin Turabi, one of the founders of the organization and responsible for the application of Islamic law in the country during the previous government of the mullahs, told the Associated Press news agency. The Guardian reports it.

In the previous Taliban government Turabi was Minister of Justice and head of the so-called Ministry of Propagation of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, while now he is responsible for the prison system and is one of the leaders included in the UN sanctions list.

The judges, including women, will judge the cases, he explained: “The cutting of the hands is very necessary for safety”, he said, recalling that when it was practiced he had a deterrent effect. The government, he concluded, is studying whether to carry out punishments in public and “develop a policy” about it.

When the Taliban were in power 20 years ago, executions of those convicted of murder were typically carried out with a gunshot to the head shot by a member of the victim’s family, who had the option of accepting so-called “bloody money” in exchange for the life of the condemned man. Furthermore, for the thieves, the punishment was the amputation of a hand, while for the crime of highway robbery a hand and a foot were amputated.
