The Taliban executed a pregnant widow. She was a widow but accused of becoming pregnantÂ after her husband's death. Sanam Gul was accused of adultery in western Afghanistan, and shot in the head for her alleged crime on Saturday.
Sanam Gul, also known as Sanam Bibi, was 47-years-old. She was killed in Badghis province Saturday morning, said Ashrafuddin Majidi, the provincial governor's spokesman, according to CNN.
Qades, Hashim Habibi, confirmed the execution. The woman stood accused of adultery, but not confirmed. Â Habbi said,Â "The woman was accused of adultery that left her pregnant. The Taliban shadow district governor, Mullah Abdul Hakim, and his judge ordered the woman to be executed."
Mohammad Yousuf, a Taliban commander, shot the woman in the head. Where is the outrage? This is so like the Salem Witch Trials. Is all that needs to be is an accusation? What proofÂ is there? Are they even sure she was pregnant? The question is of import because to accuse her of adultery, and getting pregnant, the pregnancy has to be proven. Also, the woman could have been raped. What chance does a woman stand under Taliban rule?
This is disgusting.
