Taliban stones man, woman to death for alleged affair

The Taliban stoned to death a man and a woman in northern Afghanistan for allegedly having an affair, officials said Monday.

The stoning took place Sunday in Dasht-e-Archi district, in the village of Mullah Qali - a village dominated by the Taliban in Kunduz province.

The pair was accused of having an illicit sexual relationship, a spokesman for the Kunduz governor said.

The woman was about 20 years old and the man was about 27, said Mohammed Ayuob, district governor of Amam Sahib, which is also in Kunduz province.

The woman was engaged, and the man was married to another woman. The two had been held by the Taliban for about a week, Ayuob said.

CNN's Mati Matiullah contributed to this report.

    The Taliban is a barbaric bearded group of Islamic murderers that have no place in modern civilization. The only good Taliban is a dead Taliban.

    It's hard to fathom that there are actually human beings in this world that live their lives this way. Stoning people to death for having an affair and they weren't even married (not that that should even really matter)???!!! How unbelievably cruel to end 2 young people's lives for such nonsense. Such matters of moral dilemnas like cheating on your partner affect nobody else whatseover in society except for those involved and no government should have any say at all in such personal matters, much less have the ability to stone you to death for such a thing. How incredibly barbaric these people are. I don't know what else to say other than they just need to be eradicated from the face of the earth for such crimes against humanity.

    The president of Afghanistan called this a crime and against Islam. Unfortunately, it is directly in keeping with Islam in terms of culture, scripture, society and practice. You can call this a racist statement, but it is a statement of fact.

    This is why we can't win there nor will we ever get out with any sort of victory. Religion is the rule of law, and when religion rules you get things like martyrdom, dismemberment and old world stone throwing justice that is built on vengeance rather than logic and intelligent thought. It seems to me they are more like wild animals than people. Unable to control their urges and think rationally about life, death and happiness. I think we need to push Afghanistan further back into the stone age and get out and maybe send Pakistan back to the stone age too.

    It's barbaric, pure and simple. But the purpose is to intimidate people into submission to people who seek complete power over them. It's not about law or religion. It's about decentralized totalitarianism. It's collusion for personal gain. It's using a modern organizational model to spread a practice that enables a group to seize and retain power. It's a sociopathic meme.

    The continuing argument over religion. How many have been tortured, maimed, ostracised and killed over religious beliefs? One teaches this, the others teach something different. How many writings/scriptures are followed and we are told "this one" is the word of God? Why do religions tell us to follow "these scriptures" because they ARE the word of God, but yet change the wording & teachings to fit the times? Are THEY talking to God? How can any holy person "forgive" you of your sins? Did they talk to God and get his OK? And on and on! If you BELEIVE then you are not going to change, so why try? The question is were the people that stoned these two following the teachings of their religion, or have they perverted it to justifiy/terrorise others to "follow them" as they have the only answer! Again it wouldn't be the first time.

    The Taliban is nothing more than an Afghan version of the Mafia. They shake down other Afghans for protection money, kidnap kids to be their soldiers, and operate a parallel government. If the Kabul government of Karzai wants its writ to be respected outside Kabul, it's going to have to deal with the rotten corrupt elements within it, otherwise anything the US or NATO do there will be for naught.

    All I have to say is that when you harm, torture or kill a sinner it makes you worse of a sinner than those who have sinned. This is why Jesus preached against the Pharisees and why he came to the world to teach us love, forgiveness and repentance for the sinner! Jesus is the truth and only son of God who came to save the world from sin! There is no other way to the Father but through HIM!

        "Do unto others" does not apply when confronting evil. The Taliban is an organization based entirely on terrorizing anyone who disagrees with them. Thus, any action taken against them is self-defense.

  66. Ali

    I think some of the comments that have been posted represent the bias and ignorance of a certain type (i.e. uneducated) of people in this country who all seem to point a finger at Islam because they have been conditioned to do so. Islam is an Abrahamic religion as is Judaism and Christianity. All are God's attempts to guide us. Unfortunately, some men and women, including the people mentioned in this article, have corrupted the messages that were given. Keep in mind that the Bible mentions stoning in several cases so saying this is isolated to Islam is an ignorant statement. Second, the Quaran DOES NOT mention stoning for adultery. Again, the Quaran DOES NOT mention stoning for adultery. It does specifically mention how to handle cases in which a man and women are accused of adultery; however, it does not mention stoning (or putting to death in any other way) as a punishment. People have gotten this idea (and many others) from another book, namely, the Hadith. I am not going to get into the Hadith and how it contradicts the Quaran here, but keep that in mind. Keep in mind that I look to the Bible/Torah and Quaran for guidance and I find them highly useful. Its a shame that so many out there are trying to corrupt them.....or should I say have corrupted them.

Just the same there is much about Islam that I don't unerstand but stoning somone to death has nothing t do with law or religion..it is barbaric...watch "The Stoning of Saraya M"...I've seen it twice and still can't watch the stoning.

        @Larry ... are you kidding me!? How could you possibly compare a capital crime with adultery? One is a religious/moral infraction the other is an unnatural crime. Only animals kill their own kind, and last I looked we were slightly more logical than animals. Admittedly we can't relate because we didn't grow up in this environment, but Islamic morality appears to be slightly anti feminist and fear based at best. Justifying it in any way seems futile.

      You fail to distinguish between the Old Testament and the New Testament. Christians read both, but follow the latter, in which Christ preached love and forgiveness, not stoning. Cannot you not remember that Christ rescued the woman who was to be stoned as an adulteress by saying "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone"?

        Christianity might be New Testament, but the most crazy of its followers believe that the entire Bible from Genesis to The Revelation of John are 100% true and must be taken 100% literally. Therefore, they should be believing in stoning, etc. Jesus may have made the call about those "without sin", but Paul said follow what he said and that included punishing as in the Old Testament. He also was big on the punishment commandments...

      Correction: All revealed religion sucks. No one should need to read a book to figure out how to live and how to treat others, and they certainly shouldn't believe hearsay upon hearsay that someone heard stuff from God and wrote it down. We don't believe Greek mythology, do we? So why do we believe equally unlikely tales in written form?

      God obviously exists, because nothing we know of created itself. Therefore, there must be a first cause or Creator. We can't really know much else, except that which we can observe through nature. It's high time we put away all the bedtime storybooks and just let our consciences and our God-given reason lead the way.

It points you toward the way to break the control your selfishness, pride and arrogance has over you (which is quite apparent in many of these posts). You people are just too narrow minded to accept things you don't understand, too lazy to study up on it, and too arrogant to admit your ignorance...

      I'm still shocked by all ignorant people are in not being able to see the obvious big picture. Connect A to B. Christianity and Islam both stemmed from Judaism. O my why do all 3 major religions say the same things? They were sects of the same religion that gained popularity and became "separate religions". Why do you think all the stories are the same, or why they all have a holy tome and same father and son combo? The main differences developed through cultural evolution and the religions were tailored to the traditions of the area they thrived in.

    If this story of the stoning of the man and the woman is true, it does invoke memory of the fact that there were women and men who were burned as witches in the New World at one time. Fortunately, the Americas have come a long way towards being somewhat civilized over the last 300 – 400 years, whereas, the Taliban are still stuck in the 17th century.

      Unfortunately, the Taliban's "willingness" to participate in these elections is likely nothing more than a political ploy. For the US to agree to cooperate with the Taliban would basically recognize them as a legitimate Gov't body. For the US to refuse would be an admission of guilt. That's all they want. It's a no win situation for us and they know it.

      They send brainwashed children into markets to blow themselves and other civilians up as standard practice and they say they will cooperate on investigating civilian deaths. That's like Hitler cooperating to look into Jewish deaths! The Taliban leadership need to be tried and executed for war crimes and terrorism. They backed and supported 9-11.

      In regards to your post- why would you 'legitimize' the perpetrators of the bulk of violence committed against Afghans by welcoming them into a commission that has already determined that the TB is responsible for?

      If you had a pool of thugs in the states that were known to commit violence against a population, and then an independent commission determined that they were the cause- would you entertain their 'request' to form another commission? I think not.

      By our culture it certainly seems strong, but if it is a Capitol Offense Law in their country then you must live within the Law.....if you do not agree with the Law then you have to change it or leave.......I know that is easier said than done. I will not mention the country but where the Law states, or something similar, you steal they cut off a finger.......stealing is the lowest in that country. What is right or wrong....I often do not know.

        Bill, I agree with your comment about their laws. Interesting note–scholars have shown that stoning is in fact not a part of their law to be carried out as we understand it today. Here's the irony-people actually took issue w/scholars for showing where it has been misinterpreted (thus, people have been stoned to death in the name of misinterpreted law).

        You say if people don't like living in that country then they should leave. Well, isn't that easy for you to say! A MAN could leave whenever he wanted to. But a WOMAN has no such recourse and if you thought about that statement of yours you'd realize that to be true. Women can't leave the house unless supervised/guarded/accompanied by a male member of the household. How could she possibly run for the border? Barbaric culture. Shameful for the 21st century that this treatment/punishment is still going on. EVOLVE people, EVOLVE!!

        FYI, the Taliban is not the law in Afghanistan. They are fighting the government for control of the country, and have managed to dominate some villages and localities. They are the former government that sheltered al Qaeda, and were overthrown by the US led coalition in the aftermath of 9/11. What they have done here is not enforce the law, they have murdered two people in contravention of the law. You, I hope out of ignorance, are making excuses for the murderers.

        The Taliban are not the ruling party in Afghanistan, and Sharia law is not the law of the land there either. So basically this is as good as a street gang doing a drive by.

        In any civilized society there are laws that govern the rights of the people and there are norms of society that also guide behavior. Actions of the heart often conflicts with law and acceptable norms. However, in this case the Taliban were not trying to enforce law rather they were enacting pressure to control the people at the expense of the people using the justification of law. In reality they committed murder to instill fear and dominants over the locals. Murder in anyother name is just that. Murder. The people who seek freedom need to rise to the occassion and declare their own war against the tyrants or become a part of condoning the act of stoning, thereby, accepting, has accomplices, their role in such horrendous acts of punishment.

        It's ridiculous to say that the law is the law. In most cases, the stoning victim is in fact a victim... not guilty, an innocent person put to death by a most barbaric tradition. In this day and age, evolution needs to take place – not only physically, but mentally and legally. Do you see countries still ordering deaths at the stake, beheading or by dismemberment on a wheel? We are not living in medieval times, and do you consider the Taliban to be judges of what is right and moral? Come up with a better argument...

      some countries use the bible as a means of pushiment. our creator says to never judge pple, now this law was under the old mosqic law. not all law of land is approved by our creator even if someone does wrong and brought to justice.even jesus said some forms of religion are not accepted to god. laws over centries have been changed. they have tooken away added too. not just by human laws but by gods. if they so much believe in the creator then and say this is his law. they why do they have more than one wife cause that in its self is adutlty too. god made eve for adam only one human to go int marriage with one male human being. he never stated adam to take on more than one wife or that law would of been there in the begining in the garden of eden when he married the first human couple.
