So since attacking Afghanistan 9 years ago, most people think that we've made absolutely no progress in that shithole but did you know that in those 9 years the Taliban has not sentenced one person to death by stoning? Let's hear it for humanity! Wait for it...
The Taliban on Sunday ordered their first public executions by stoning since their fall from power nine years ago, killing a young couple who had eloped, according to Afghan officials and a witness.
Of course. The cardinal sin of falling in love and getting married. Has there ever been anyone stoned to death for doing something that stoning to death would justify? Like, how come it's always adultery or marriage or not bowing to someone? When do you ever hear about some motherfucker that raped and killed 8 children being stoned to death? Oh wait...if you haven't read the article this gets way better...
Mr. Khan estimated that about 200 villagers participated in the executions, including Khayyam’s father and brother, and Siddiqa’s brother, as well as other relatives, with a larger crowd of onlookers who did not take part.
Well, it's nice to see the families of the happy couple coming together for a common cause.
“People were very happy seeing this,” Mr. Khan maintained, saying the crowd was festive and cheered during the stoning. The couple, he said, “did a bad thing.”
Kill. Them. All.
