Turabi, one of the founders of the Taliban, said the laws would follow Sharia.
The Taliban government of Afghanistan has resumed inhuman practices. Jail Minister Mulla Nooruddin Turabi has announced that the punishment has been fixed for amputating the hands and feet of the criminals. This time the punishment under Sharia will not be given publicly. Turabi said that there is no protest among the people on such public punishment.
He warned that no country in the world should interfere on this method of punishment. Because this is an issue related to Islam and Quran. When we do not interfere in the methods of punishment in different countries around the world, then no country has the right to interfere in our laws and regulations. Turabi says that at present, women judges can also be appointed in some cases, but the basis of punishment will remain Islamic law.
Jail Minister Turabi is among the Taliban founders
Turabi, nearly 60 years old, had been the law minister in the previous Taliban government. Turabi, who lost an eye and a leg during clashes with Soviet forces in the 1980s, is one of the founders of the Taliban. He was behind the introduction of public punishment in the previous government. He said, chopping off the hands and feet of the offender does not lead to repetition of the crime. The fear of the law remains.
Where is Sharia implemented in Muslim countries?
Pakistan: In 1979, the then military dictator Zia-ul-Haq began Islamization. But in 2006 the Women’s Protection Act came into force. Adultery and rape are heard only in mainstream courts. Sharia decisions can be challenged in mainstream courts.
Bangladesh: Islamic countries, but in the constitution, those who follow other religions also have the right to equality. Divorce, alimony and property related matters of Muslims are heard in Sharia Court only.
Saudi Arab: Public punishment of beheading for raping a minor. Eye for eye punishment. Public punishment for homosexuality.
Indonesia: In this country with the largest Muslim population, homosexuality, gambling, drinking and adultery are punishable by public whipping. Sharia prohibits the death penalty.
