Turabi: Everyone criticized us in the implementation of the stadium .. But we never said anything about their laws


Turabi, in his sixties, was the Minister of Justice and the chief of the so-called Ministry of Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice during the previous Taliban rule.

According to “Al Arabiya.net”, Mullah Noureddin Turabi, one of the founders of the “Taliban” movement and the most prominent implementer of its strict interpretation of Islamic law when it previously ruled Afghanistan, said that the “Taliban” will carry out death sentences and amputations, but it may not do so in public.

In an interview with the Associated Press, Turabi rejected the anger over the executions carried out by the “Taliban” in the past, which sometimes took place in full view of crowds in sports stadiums, and warned the world against a clash with the new rulers of Afghanistan.

“Everyone criticized us for carrying out penalties in the stadium, but we never said anything about their laws and their punishments,” he said from Kabul. “No one will tell us what our laws should be. We will follow Islam and we will make our laws based on the Qur’an.”

Since the Taliban took control of Kabul on August 15, the Afghans and the world have been watching to see if they will re-implement their hard-line rule as it was in the late nineties of the last century.

Turabi’s statements indicate the extent to which Taliban leaders still adhere to a hard-line vision, even though they have adopted technology and its changes, such as mobile phones and video clips.

Turabi, in his sixties, was the Minister of Justice and the chief of the so-called Ministry for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice – or the religious police in practice – during the previous rule of the “Taliban”.

At that time, the world condemned the “Taliban” sanctions, which were carried out in sports stadiums in Kabul or in the vast Eid Gah mosque courtyard, usually attended by hundreds of Afghan men.

Most of the executions of those convicted of murder were carried out with a single shot in the head, by the victim’s family, who were free to accept “blood money” and allow the offender to live. For convicted thieves, the punishment was amputation. For those convicted of road robbery, the penalty was amputation of the hand and foot.

Trials and convictions were rarely public, and judicial powers were in the hands of clerics whose legal knowledge was limited to jurisprudence.

Al-Turabi said that this time the judges, including the women, will rule on the cases, but the basis of Afghan laws will be the Qur’an. He said the sanctions themselves would be revived.

He pointed out that “cutting off hands is absolutely necessary for security,” and has a deterrent effect. He added that the cabinet was studying whether public sanctions would be imposed and would “establish a policy”.

In recent days in Kabul, Taliban fighters have revived a punishment they used in the past: public defamation of men accused of petty theft.
