Local sources in Balkh province in northern Afghanistan said that the Taliban security head for the province’s Sholgara district killed a young girl named Maryam after she rejected his marriage proposal.
The Taliban administration’s head of Propagation of Virtue and Prevention of Vice in the Sholgara district of Balkh province, Mullah Yasin, killed a girl because she refused to marry him, the source said.
Taliban government officials in the Balkh province, who also acknowledged the occurrence of the incident, claim that Mullah Yasin was detained and assured that he is in custody.
According to Mohammad Asif Waziri, the spokesperson for the Taliban chief of police in the province of Balkh, Maryam was the victim of a single murder by a department employee.
Among the topics that create headlines in the media are sexual corruption and scandals involving the Taliban and the insatiable yearning for marriage.
The Taliban leader had previously told his people to decide on a path of action, think about their responsibilities, and refrain from having more than one wife.
This occurs at a time when Taliban commanders are reported to have paid sizable dowries to their fathers-in-laws in return for the hands of their daughters, and a Taliban commander recently transported his newlywed bride home on a military chopper belonging to the Afghan National Army.
