New Delhi: A United Nations (UN) report released today has criticized the Taliban in Afghanistan. The United Nations has criticized the Taliban for public executions, floggings and stonings carried out in Afghanistan and called on the authorities to halt such practices. In response, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that Afghanistan’s laws are in accordance with Islamic rules and guidelines and a large number of Afghan citizens follow these rules.
The Taliban’s foreign ministry responded by saying, ‘In the event of a conflict between international human rights law and Islamic law, the government is committed to following Islamic law.’ Such punishments began shortly after the Taliban seized power in Afghanistan about two years ago. While he promised to adopt more liberal rules than during his tenure in the 1990s.
