Total tyrannical disregard for life. Barbaric!

BBC - A group of armed men have stoned and shot dead a woman and her daughter in Afghanistan's Ghazni province, security officials have told the BBC.

The officials blamed the Taliban, who they said had accused the women of "moral deviation and adultery".

The police said two men had been arrested in connection with the murder.

The attack was only 300m from the governor's office in Ghazni city, which is on a list of places to be transferred to Afghan security control.

The incident happened on Thursday in the Khawaja Hakim area of Ghazni city, where the family lived.

The BBC's Bilal Sarwary in Kabul says it is close to the governor's office, the police chief's office and a Western-backed Provincial Reconstruction Team.

Security officials said armed men entered the house where the young widow lived with her daughter and took them out to the yard, where they were initially stoned and then shot dead.

"Neighbours did not help or inform the authorities on time," an official said.

Officials said a number of religious leaders in the city had been issuing fatwas (Islamic religious edicts) asking people to report any one who was "involved in adultery".

Deserving of worldwide condemnation. American bloggers both liberal and conservative should make this go viral.

  1. Yeah, we should all condemn this stuff every time it rears it's ugly head. Maybe if enough people regularly shamed them for their barbarism, they'd finally knock it off.


  2. This is so common as to be unremarkable. We are not going to make stuff like this go away over there.

    We need to pack up and go home.

  3. Hmmm. One cannot have Islamic nonsense, death, misogyny, or hatred without Islam to begin with.

    Insha'Allah, indeed.

  4. Allah ain't so akbar in my opinion.
