A former government adviser complained that the Taliban “invited people to the stadium to watch the hanging of two men. At the same time, the public “spectacle” included the stoning of a woman to death.”

An Afghan man convicted of murder was publicly executed today, the Taliban announced, announcing the first public execution since returning to power in August 2021.

The execution took place in the western province of Farah. A man convicted of fatally stabbing another man in 2017 has been executed, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said, adding that the execution was in the presence of several high-ranking Taliban officials.

The Taliban spokesman did not say how the man was executed.

However, according to Shabnam Nasimi, a former government adviser, the Taliban “invited people to the stadium to watch the hanging of two men .
At the same time, the public “spectacle” included the stoning of a woman to death.”

The public execution came after the country’s Supreme Court had announced in recent weeks public floggings of men and women accused of crimes such as theft and adultery in the country’s provinces.

Last month Taliban supreme leader Himbatullah Akhundzada ordered judges to fully apply Islamic law – Sharia – particularly its provisions for public executions, stoning and flogging, as well as mutilation of thieves.

A spokesman for the UN Human Rights Office last month called on Taliban authorities to immediately stop public floggings in Afghanistan.
