Disturbing videos show Taliban enforcing Sharia in parts of Afghanistan

New Delhi, Jul 31 (IANS): The Deobandi groups larger objective is to impose Sharia in Afghanistan by converting it into an emirate and expand its influence all over the country at the cost of minorities and womens rights, Afghan media reports said.

Disturbing videos and photos circulating on social media show the Taliban torturing and killing people in Afghanistan as the extremist group has been seizing territories after international troops began withdrawing from the country in May 2021.

While both the US and the UN have warned the Taliban of international isolation and travel sanctions if the group unilaterally tries to seize power in Kabul, the Islamist group, with its leadership safely ensconced in neighbouring Pakistan, is in no mood to change from its 1996 version, reports said.

In one of the video clips on Twitter, several men are seen gathered around a man, picking up stones and repeatedly throwing them at him as he tries to save himself.

In another clip, a man is seen being beaten with sticks and stones and kicked by men. Yet another video was tweeted, which show the Taliban cutting the private parts of a man.

It was not possible to verify the authenticity of these videos or ascertain where they were shot, media reports said.

On Thursday, the Taliban said that they had killed a popular comedian. Nazar Mohammad, known as Khasha Zwan, was taken out of his home on July 22 and killed. The family of the comedian, who previously served in Kandahar Police, has blamed the Taliban for the attack.

Last week, viral videos showed Mohammad with his hands tied behind his back and sitting between two men in a car, being slapped repeatedly.

Earlier this month, reports said the Taliban has ordered women not to leave their home alone, set dowry regulations for girls and men to grow their beards, among other diktats.

According to reports, the Taliban has also issued a statement ordering local religious leaders to give them a list of girls over 15 years of age and widows under 45, reports said.

The Taliban, the reports said, has promised to get them married to its fighters.

In the past as well, the Taliban had enforced a strict interpretation of Islamic law, including public lashings, flogging and stoning. Women were required to cover their bodies and faces in a burqa and were barred from going to school or work or leaving the house without a male relative.

    Indian journalist Danish Siddiqui brutally executed by the Taliban after checking his credentials. Any ideology that has for its idol, a man called Moses, about whom Thomas Paine writes in his ‘Age of Reason’ : “Among the detestable villains that in any period of the world have disgraced the name of man, it is impossible to find a greater than Moses, if this account be true. Here is an order to butcher the boys, to massacre the mothers, and debauch the daughters.” Paine was merely analysing what is quoted in the Old Testament, Numbers 31:13. To learn more about a certain violent ideology concocted (by a businessman trader who wished to unethically and immorally acquire land and power) abt. 1500 years ago, by plagiarising portions of the Hebrew Bible and the Christian Bible and voila! calling it a “revelation”:read or watch the collaborated work of Sam Harris and Maajid Nawaz or Ayaan Hirsi Ali or Abdullah Gondal etc. For those who have been brainwashed since birth or later, I recommend the work of Joost Meerloo " The ........ of the mind". Chapt. 5: ‘ Psychological Warfare as a Weapon of Terror’: “The strategy of man to use a frightening mask and a loud voice to utter lies in order to manipulate friend and foe is as old as mankind.... It is an effort to propagandize and hypnotize the world into submission.” . ‘The Indoctrination Barrage’: Repetition and Pavlovian conditioning exhaust the individual and may seduce him ultimately to accept a truth he himself initially defied and scorned...... The continual intrusion into our minds of the hammering noises of arguments and propaganda can lead to two kinds of reactions....‘ The cold war against the mind’ : “It is extremely difficult to escape the mechanically repeated suggestions of everyday life. Even when our critical mind rejects them, they seduce us into doing what our intellect tells us is stupid.....The man who has no mind of his own can easily become the pawn of a would-be dictator..........”

    When Taliban is ruthlessly killing their own brethren, it's really surprising, why there is no protest from their own community world wide. Are they all happy or endorsing Taliban's acts?

    The answer is yes. Most of the Islamic community wants sharia law, that includes killing people of other religions and other things seen by Islamic state in Syria
