The Taliban judge had a terrifying glimpse of life under Islamic groups and the fate of waiting for Afghani when the country returned to their control.
Guru Rahim, 38, is a form of execution in a Taliban-controlled district in central Afghanistan, cutting off limbs from thieves, allowing women to leave the house, and knocking down gay men’s walls. Virtually talked about.
He added that his aim was to introduce Shari’a punishment throughout the country if the Taliban could regain control after the United States left.

Rahim revealed his vision of justice in an interview with the German newspaper Bild and told reporters near Central Afghanistan, where he has been based for several years.
Talking about the recent case he ruled, he said it turned out that the man had stolen the ring from his house-so he ordered him to cut his hand.
“I asked the ring owner if he asked to hack the thief’s leg because he not only stole the ring but also broke in. This means he committed two crimes. I will, “he added.
“But the owner of the house agreed that only his hands would be cut off.”
In another recent ruling, he ordered the gang to hang those who captured kidnappings and smuggling.
“Depending on the crime, you can start with your fingertips or fingers. For worse crimes, we cut your wrists, elbows, or upper arms. Death by stoning or hanging is the only of the biggest crimes. It’s an option, “he said.
When asked what punishment the Taliban would consider for gay men, he replied that he had only two options.
“You have to stone or stand behind the wall where he falls. The height of the wall should be 8 to 10 feet,” he said.
As the United States leaves the country and the Taliban quickly regain territory, many women are leaving the country for fear of living under Islamic groups.
Rahim had to get permission first, but when he claimed that women were allowed to leave the house under Taliban control, he did little to alleviate their fears.
Judge Gull Rahim virtually talked about executing gays and kidnappers while cutting off their limbs from thieves (pictured, Taliban prisoners were executed in 2007).
Rahim’s terrifying vision of “justice” is reminiscent of the worst atrocities under ISIS. It was routinely executed by throwing a gay man out of the building and posting it online (pictured).

He said women are also allowed to attend school only if the teacher is a woman and wears a compulsory hijab.
Rahim’s dark portrayal of the Taliban’s “justice” reminds us of the worst years under the Islamic regime that emerged in the 1990s and ruled until they were expelled from power during the American invasion.
In one of the famous images reminiscent of the horror of the time, a man accused of murder sits in the middle of a national soccer stadium behind a pickup truck with another man holding an AK47 rifle. You can see it.
Immediately after the photo was taken, the man was shot dead as part of the execution of about 35,000 people.
More than 20 years after these images were taken, the scene is not immediately repeated as the Taliban rapidly recaptures the vast territories of the country as the United States ends the “eternal war.” There is a concern.
The group now boasts about 80% of Afghanistan after a super-fast attack in rural areas, but the actual figure is about 30%, observers say.
In many areas, governments fought and defeated on multiple battlefields, and the battles were fierce and bloody.
In some places, commanders simply abandoned their posts or negotiated surrender with militants to be allowed to go home.
However, other governments have tactically withdrawn to focus their troops on major towns and cities that are hoping to make defense their last stand later this year in the face of the almost inevitable attacks of the Taliban. Claims to have done.

Western leaders want the fighting to end with some form of power-sharing agreement between the government and the Taliban, but many are afraid that Islamists will win and regain control of the country. There is.
If that happens, Rahim’s harsh outlook on life can become a daily reality.
The commander has already warned that some of Afghanistan’s capitals are surrounded by the Taliban, and militia groups hired by the government have already complained of a shortage of weapons and ammunition.
Combat is currently taking place around Kandahar, Ghazni, Rashkagar, Puruekmuri and Tarkan, officials said.
Meanwhile, the battle in the western city of Qala-e-Nau, which was attacked by the Taliban last week before a counterattack by government forces, has intensified for days.
“We urge the government to implement appropriate plans to suppress the Taliban,” said Hasan Hakimi, a civil society activist in central Ghor, after more districts fell into armed groups yesterday. It was.
Despite the risks, the United States is withdrawing and expects all troops to leave the country by the end of August.
On Monday, Afghanistan’s best US general abandoned command at an official ceremony in Kabul-one step closer to the departure of the United States from the country.
General Austin Scott Miller, the highest officer on the ground in Afghanistan, gave command to General Kenneth Mackenzie.
Miller has been stationed in Afghanistan since 2018, but was charged in May by Commander-in-Chief Joe Biden for organizing the final withdrawal of US troops and is expected to be completed by the end of August.
Since May, most of the 2,500 US troops have left, and the United States has also handed over to Afghan National Army’s Bagram Airfield, from which the Allied forces have conducted operations against the Taliban and jihadist groups for the past two decades.
Approximately 650 US troops will be stationed in Kabul to protect Washington’s vast diplomatic facility, where the ceremony was held on Monday.
Afghanistan’s top executives and military officers attended the ceremony in a highly fortified green belt.
