Tragic! Woman Beheaded in Afghanistan After Entering City to Shop Without her Husband

A 30-year old woman was beheaded at a small remote village in the Latti in Sar-e-Pul province of Afghanistan after she went shopping in the city market without her husband or any male relative.

The Village of Latti is under Taliban control and a provincial Governor in Afghanistan revealed that the people who murdered her were Taliban fighters.

Under the Taliban rules women are not allowed to go alone to public places without any close male relative accompanying them.

Although her identity is yet to be revealed officials say the reason why the victim went to the market alone was because her husband was away in Iran and they do not have any children.

They haven’t made an arrest yet and the Taliban are denying any involvement in the death of the 30 year old woman.

This story gives me the chills, how very unfortunate. We can only imagine what her family and friends are going through now.

    So where are those people who said Islam protects the rights of women and as such gender equality being irrelevant? Please boldly raise your hands! If that bill is not passed in Nigeria, this is what they’ll turn us to.

    i guess this is what the sultan of sokoto and all these people who are against the equality rights bill want us to accept. what i’ve never understood is if you want to embrace a religion that condemns women that’s fine but why are you forcing all of us to accept your outdated values? the women in these societies who get beheaded and stoned never asked to be subjected to these laws but people like the sultan want us all to agree to their personal faith that’s wrong

    How are we sure that Taliban Fighters did it, when they are denying any role in it?

    This has more to do with primitive local patriarchal customs than Islam. Obviously you did not read the whole article, which says that Taliban have denied the responsibility. Painting this as ‘religious’ makes you an Islamophobic.

      My people, can we just pass the gender equality bill and state clearly that it doesn’t apply to anyone over 21 who identifies as Muslim:? that way the gender equality law can be passed and the muslims can keep their ‘religion of peace’.

    Where are those fools Chief and Paul Adeyomo? I wonder what they’ll say about this! When we say gender equality, they will open their disgusting mouths to spew venom! They should come and find a way to blame women/feminism for this one too! He goats!
