Mother of two killed on adultery charges in Jawzjan

Immigration News


A mother of two children has been executed allegedly for having immoral contacts with a man disregarding her husband in northern Jawzjan province.

Officials say the woman was accused and handed over to Taliban by her in-laws.

Shakib, governor of Faizabad district told Pajhwok Afghan News that the woman was gunned down in Mimlik village on Saturday night.

Taliban spokesperson has also confirmed the killing but rejected involvement of his group in the incident.

Mujahid said Taliban had received a complaint from the woman’s husband accusing her for having wrong character but she was not killed by them.

According to Mujahid, the woman was executed by her husband.

However, Maghfirat Samimi who heads mission of the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC) in Jawzjan has said that the woman was killed by fighters of Mullah Ahmad Shah, a Taliban commander.

Due to the fact that some remote areas in the country are not under full control of government, therefor militant groups, local warlords or strongmen in those villages have established their own desert courts.

They execute people based on their way of justice. Sometimes the accused are not even given a chance to have a say.

Nangarhar, Logar, Ghazni, Helmand, Zabul and Farah are among other provinces where similar incidents have taken place.
