Horrifying: woman beaten publicly in northern Afghanistan

It is worth mentioning that this crime did not occur in an area under the domination of the Taliban or ISIS, it occurred under the nose of this brutal “unity” government

On February 1, 2018, a 22-year-old woman named Suraya was beaten publicly in Rabaat Amdeen village of Chah Aab district in northern Takhar province. The woman’s husband is living in Iran, and the woman was accused of having relations with another man. Based on this accusation, Faiz, a local commander and one of Bashir Qanet’s (belonging to Gulbuddin Hekmatyar’s Hezbe-Islami or Islamic Party) thugs, ordered her to be beaten brutally in public, in a mock court ruling.

In a video circulated on Facebook, a woman in a burqa is seen trembling with fear. She is forced to sit on the ground and then a group of angry men attack her with sticks, hitting her savagely, and calling her lewd names. According to the local people, this woman had also given birth to a baby and that innocent being was killed a few hours after its birth by the same criminal hooligans. More details on the condition of this suffering woman is not available. She is currently living in her in-laws’ house.

It is worth mentioning that this crime did not occur in an area under the domination of the Taliban or ISIS, it occurred under the nose of this brutal “unity” government, by men belonging to the murderous Gulbuddin, who is painted as a peace ambassador now.
