Amnesty International has declared that the flogging of 63 people, including 15 women, in a stadium in Sar-e Pol is shocking, inhumane, and a violation of international laws.

This human rights organization, on Thursday, June 6, on its social media platform X, called on the Taliban to immediately stop the punishment of flogging.

The United Nations Human Rights Office also said on Wednesday, Jun 5, that corporal punishment, such as flogging, violates human dignity and Afghanistan’s international obligations.

The Taliban announced on Tuesday that 63 people were flogged in public in the central stadium of Sar-e Pol province.

The Taliban Supreme Court stated that these individuals were accused of theft and extramarital relations.

Meanwhile, the situation of human rights in Afghanistan has become increasingly dire, with severe restrictions placed on women’s education and employment.

The Taliban’s return to power has resulted in the banning of girls from secondary schools and universities, effectively stripping half of the population of their right to education and future opportunities.

In addition to educational restrictions, the suppression of human rights extends to various aspects of daily life. The Taliban regime has imposed strict limitations on freedom of speech, assembly, and the press, silencing dissent and punishing those who dare to speak out against their oppressive rule.

Human rights activists and journalists face constant threats, arbitrary arrests, and even execution.

Violence in Afghanistan has escalated, with public flogging, execution, and other forms of corporal punishment becoming increasingly common. These brutal practices are carried out in public spaces, including sports stadiums, to instill fear and maintain control over the population.

Such actions not only violate international human rights standards but also perpetuate a culture of fear and repression, making it nearly impossible for Afghan citizens to live with dignity and freedom.
