Cutting off hands, executions are necessary: Taliban leader to reintroduce amputations in new Afghan regime



Mullah Nooruddin Turabi, a founder of the Taliban who will control prisons under the new government in Afghanistan, has revealed that harsh punishments, including amputations and executions, will return to the country .



"Everyone criticized us for the punishments in the stadium, but we have never said anything about their laws and their punishments," Turabi said in Kabul during an interview, which was published Thursday, September 23, by the Associated Press.



"No one will tell us what our laws should be. We will follow Islam, and we will make our laws on the Quran."


Under the Taliban's previous rule of Afghanistan, Turabi served as justice minister and head of the Ministry of Propagation of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, a position the Associated Press stated was "the religious police."



During that time, amputations and executions were carried out for criminal offenses, including theft and highway robbery.Latest Post
