Taliban Bring Back ‘Virtue’ Ministry, Stoning and Amputations for ‘Major Sins’​


KABUL, Afghanistan — The Taliban’s reinstatement of the Ministry for Propagation of Virtue and Prevention of Vice — which was abolished following the US occupation — sent a collective shudder through many Afghans, who remembered it for its strict interpretation of Islamic law.

“The main purpose is to serve Islam. Therefore, it is compulsory to have Ministry of Vice and Virtue,” Mohammad Yousuf, who says he is around 32 years old and responsible for the “central zone” of Afghanistan, tells me from inside his Kabul office on Monday. “We will punish as per the Islamic rules. Whatever Islam guides us, we will punish accordingly.”

Actions will be taken on the “major sins of Islam,” such as sexual intercourse outside marriage, killing someone, and theft, he said.

“Islam has its rules for major sins. For example, killing someone has different rules. If you do it intentionally, if you know the person and intentionally kill the person, you will be killed back. If not intentional, then there might be another punishment like paying a certain amount of money,” Yousuf continues. “If there is a theft, the hand will be cut off. If there is illegal intercourse, they (violators) will be stoned.”

He claimed that both the male and female miscreants would be executed in the draconian manner, although stoning has previously been the group’s mode of punishment for women. Yousuf says four witnesses are required, and those witnesses “should all have the same story.”

Cool story. Are you saying Trump should not have signed a deal with them to withdraw? Or that Biden should not have followed through with it?

Did you want to stay there for another 20 years and a few more $trillion and then leave?

Again, what do you want us to do about this?

The Biden whitehouse should not go out of its way to help the Taliban

This organization the Taliban has re-established is nothing like something Democrats are building towards or even want, and also nothing like the fictional book 1984's Ministry of Truth (Actually tasked with ensuring lies and rewriting of history/reality deemed necessary were implemented, to the point of destroying any digital or physical record of the previous reality).

If anything, Texas's recent efforts at restricting abortion availability are closer to it.

This "Ministry for Propagation of Virtue and Prevention of Vice " is essentially there to apply and enforce Islamic religious law on Afghanistan.

Yes AND no.

Because this is 2021.

We can have it both ways if we want, and reality doesn't matter.
My opinion is long overdue

Funny watching you trying to equate Dems with religious conservatives that are pushing for hard corp religious conservatism.

I doubt you will get an answer out of the OP, dozens of complaint threads zero suggestions.

Just drive by Biden outrage.

In many of these threads there isn’t even any sense of what he’s complaining about. As you say, all of his threads are drive-by’s now.
