The Taliban, an Islamic militant group that in the past conducted a 'politics of terror' with public executions at the forefront, has put a brake on this practice after re-establishing power.
It is interpreted that the leadership judged that if we continue to ignore the concerns of human rights groups regarding public executions, the goal of becoming a 'normal state' through international recognition could be hindered.
Taliban interim government spokeswoman Zabihullah Mujahid said on Twitter on the night of the 14th that a cabinet meeting had decided to ban public executions without a court order.
It appears to be an attempt to reduce the practice of reckless public executions by instructing them to obtain a Supreme Court order prior to public executions.
Mujahid also said that if criminals are punished, the public must also know what crimes he committed.
In the past, the Taliban controlled society harshly with Sharia (Islamic law) in the forefront during the reign of the Taliban (1996-2001).
At that time, entertainment such as music and TV was banned, and public executions were allowed, such as cutting off thieves or stoned women to death.
The Taliban, which succeeded in re-establishing power in August, promised to respect human rights and form an inclusive government unlike in the past, but in reality, many critics say that it has not been properly kept.Keywords: taliban, executions, community, practice, human rights groups, goal, concerns, recognition, court order, forefront, politics, brake, terror, islamic, power
