Provincial security chief Sharafuddin Sharfa said the Mullah Imam had issued a Fatwa for death penalty of an Afghan girl, who was later executedover adultery charges.

Mr. Sharaf further added that Halmia was publicly executed in Kokchial village after the Mullah issued Fatwa, accusing the girl for having illicit relations with another man.

The provincial security chief called the act of Mullah as un-Islamic and against the principles of humanity.

He said, “This was an illegal act, since a woman should be tried for her crimes according to the Sharia law. The judiciary institutions are active in Afghanistan and the Fatwa against the victim was unfair.”

Security chief Sharafuddin Sharaf said that the woman was executed and there was no evidence to prove her guilty, and therefore Afghan security forces have arrested the Mullah and he has been handed over to judiciary institutions.

According to Mr. Sharf the Fatwa was issued by Abdul Ghafoor earlier in April this year.
