Widow and Daughter Executed In Afghanistan For “Immoral Activities”

We have yet another killing in the name of Sharia law. Two Afghan men broke into a home virtually next door to the Governor’s house in Ghazni City at 4:00 a.m. and pulled a mother and her daughter into their backyard. They were first stoned and then shot for alleged immoral activities.

The mother is a young widow and it is not clear what she allegedly did to receive Islamic justice. Two men have been arrested, but it will be interesting to watch to see if they ever stand trial in the heavy Taliban area.

  1. Rafflaw, thank you, but I’d like to put my 3 cents’ worth in on this subject. The war on women didn’t start here any time recently (its battle tactics did change) and it has not been just “the right” that leads it. It has morphed so many times (technology, economics, other social and political environmental conditions trigger mutations, some of which become very robust) within the last century or two that it might seem like a “new species.” Don’t get me started. STP ME STOP ME STOP ME —

  2. The War on Women has already started here by the Right. Their tactics here are a bit different, but the intended result is the same. To keep women in their place and to return to the day when women are considered chattel.

  3. The evangelicals and fundamentalists want this. they just don’t want the Muslims to get any credit for it.

  4. So when will we be incorporating this into our unconstitution? Adams would be proud and maybe Jefferson could pen an amendment or hell just use a signing statement or executive order to cut through the chase…

  5. And then there’s the case that took place right here in this country: defendant was a man who admitted beating his wife to death with a hammer (did not stone or shoot her, though) for immoral activities. He pled guilty and got probation and had to promise the judge not to do it again. We do have plenty to complain of, against those countries that actually HAVE PRINTED LAWS allowing this kind of conduct, but I think we need to also recognize that we (on a case by case basis) sometimes allow this kind of conduct without writing it down.
