Horrifying video shows young woman being stoned to death for alleged adultery in Taliban-controlled area of Afghanistan 

  • 30-second video shows woman being pelted with stones by group of men
  • Punished for eloping with a man after family arranged a different marriage
  • Victim is thought to be aged between 19 and 21 and called Rokhsahana
  • Incident took place about a week ago in Taliban-controlled area Firozkoh

A young woman has been stoned to death in a Taliban-controlled area of Afghanistan after eloping with a man.

A 30-second video shows the woman, known only as Rokhsahana and believed to be aged between 19 and 21, lying in a hole in the ground as a group of around 15 men hurl stones at her.

Her voice can be heard growing increasingly high-pitched as the rocks strike her body with sickening thuds.

Teenage girl stoned to death by Taliban for 'premarital sex'

The killing, which took place on October 25 just outside Firozkoh, was confirmed by officials earlier today.

Governor Seema Joyenda said: 'The footage shown in the media is related to Rokhsahana, who was stoned to death.' 

Joyenda, one of only two female governors in Afghanistan, said Rokhsahana's family had married her off against her will before she was caught while eloping with another man her age.

The man was let off with a lashing, Joyenda's spokesman said.

The brutal punishment highlights the endemic violence against women in Afghan society, despite reforms since the Taliban regime fell in 2001.

In March a woman named Farkhunda was savagely beaten and set ablaze in central Kabul after being falsely accused of burning a Koran.

The mob killing triggered protests around the country and drew global attention to the treatment of Afghan women.

Joyenda condemned the stoning in Ghor, calling on Kabul to launch a military operation to rid the area of insurgents and other armed groups.

She said: 'This is the first incident in this area [this year] but will not be the last.

'Women in general have problems all over the country but in Ghor even more conservative attitudes prevail.'

In September a video from the region appeared to show a woman receiving lashes from a turbaned elder in front of a crowd of male spectators.

The flogging came after a local court found her guilty of having sex outside marriage with a man, who was similarly punished.

Shariah law decrees stoning as the punishment for men and women convicted of having sex outside marriage but the penalty is very rarely applied in Muslim countries.

Public lashings and executions were common under the Taliban's five-year rule, when a strict interpretation of Sharia law was enforced.

The Taliban have so far not commented on the stoning in Ghor.

Don't worry, its NTDWI.  Well, Islam might tell Muslims to do that in one of their "holy" books of peace (that we criticize on pain of death), but I'm sure all good, decent liberal minded people can ignore that - just like they can ignore that poor woman's screams.

Muslim Terrorism Count

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11

Mission Overview

Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them. 

At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.

Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.

We need to capture this information before it is removed.  The site already contains sufficient information to cover most issues, but our members add further updates when possible.

We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.

The 4 Freedoms

These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 
1. SP Freedom of Speech
Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms
2. SP Freedom of Election
Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms
3. SP Freedom of Movement
The government can import new voters - except where that changes the political demographics (i.e. electoral fraud by means of immigration)
4. SP Freedom from Over-spending
People should not be charged for government systems which they reject, and which give them no benefit. For example, the government cannot pass a debt burden across generations (25 years).
An additional Freedom from Religion is be deducible by equal application of law: "Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight - except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
