Rokhsahana, Shirin Gul and Farkhunda - women killed by the Taliban in Afghanistan

Disturbing videos have surfaced in recent weeks from Afghanistan, depicting the deaths of two young women, who were executed by the Taliban.

The Taliban are a group of Islamic Fundamentalists who want to force Afghanistan back into the 7th Century and they will fight to the death to do it.

In recent months, the ISIS terrorist group has infiltrated into certain provinces in Afghanistan and have started executing Taliban leaders in a new take-over bid to control this backward, rocky, mud-hut filled land of uneducated and oppressed people. One oppressive group wants to take over from another oppressive group.

On October 25, 2015, Taliban men in Firozkoh, the provincial capital of Ghor Province, Afghanistan, dug a pit, put a woman in it and stoned her to death. Her name is only given as Rokhsahana. She was 19 years old.

Details are sketchy. However, it appears that this girl had been married off to an older man against her wishes or she had refused to marry him. She was accused of having sex with her chosen fiancé who was nearer to her own age.

A video was taken of the murder of Rokhsahana which we won't publish here. However, during the 30 second video she can be heard crying out as rocks strike her head.

Rokhsahana died from stoning. The woman's fiancé was reportedly punished with

lashes but was not killed as the guilt apparently always lies with the women in Afghanistan's culture. November of 2015, also in Ghor Province, Afghanistan, a woman named Shirin Gul, age 26, was lashed (whipped) to death.

Her crime was running away from her home in Herat Province and running to her uncle's home in Ghor Province. The reason that Shirin ran away is unknown. She may have been running away from a forced and arranged marriage.

Local officials in Ghor Province state that the girl was whipped but that she did not die.

Shirin Gul's parents state that she did die from lashing.

Prior to all of this, on March 19, 2015, an Afghan woman named Farkhunda, age 27, died on a street in Kabul, the capital city of Afghanistan.

She was beaten to death by a mob of men who believed that she had burned pages of the Qu'ran.

We have seen the video and are sickened that such an act could occur in the modern era. This woman was kicked, punched in the head, beaten with sticks and had huge stones thrown at her. A crowd of onlookers stared at the spectacle as if this was an everyday occurrence or as if they were watching a sporting event. Police did not step in to intervene. Her body was then run over by a car, set on fire and thrown in what passes for a river in Kabul, but which is in reality an open sewer.

There is not one shred of evidence to show that Farkhunda had burned the Qu'ran.

She had recently finished a degree in religious studies and was preparing to take a teaching post. She got into a dispute with a mullah at a particular mosque in Kabul over the selling of religious amulets. She told women not to waste their money on them. The amulet sellers and the mullah were incensed and came up with the story that she was not a Muslim and that she had burned the Islamic holy book.

She was dragged into the street and the crowd took over from there and killed her immediately without question.

Afghanistan is the cesspool of the World. It is a country mired in the 7th century. Many Afghanis want to return to that era. The Taliban clings on to brutality as if it was their lifeline to salvation. 

Afghan men kill their own daughters, their own sisters and their own mothers in the name of honor.

God save the women of Afghanistan from the Taliban. Amen.

God help Afghanistan. Amen.
