Afghanistan: Taliban publicly chops off hands of four people in Kandahar stadium

Kandahar: Former Policy Advisor to Minister for Afghan Resettlement & Minister for Refugees in the UK, Shabnam Nasimi, has said the Taliban chopped off the hands of four people at a stadium in Kandahar region of Afghanistan recently.

She said the four people were accused of theft.

A large number of spectators were allegedly present in the stadium when the incident took place.

"The Taliban have reportedly cut off the hands of 4 people in a football stadium in Kandahar today, accused of theft, in front of spectators," she tweeted.

"People are being lashed, amputated & executed in Afghanistan, without fair trial and due process. This is a human rights violation," she said.

A total of nine people were flogged in the stadium.

Kandahar province’s court of appeals announced in a press release on Monday that nine individuals allegedly accused of committing adultery and theft have been lashed in public. The Taliban authorities have not provided further clarifications in this regard, reports Khaama Press.

Meanwhile, sources told the news agency that the Taliban authorities have lashed a man and woman in front of a huge crowd in Badakhshan province, accused of having extramarital affairs.

Public punishment which includes flogging, stoning, and public execution has been widely exercised by the Taliban authorities across the country since the time they took control over Afghanistan in 2021.
