THE Taliban have horrifically vowed to crush gay men to death by pushing walls on them as they plan to reinstate Sharia law across Afghanistan.
Jihadist judge Gul Rahim, 38, offered an alarming insight into the future of the war-torn country if Islamic militants gain full control.
They have already seized a third of Afghanistan and show no sign of slowing down their blitz offensive and are instead planning to assert the code of law derived from the Koran if they prove victorious.
Rahim told how he plans to reintroduce the torturous punishments for homosexuals and criminals across the entire country once American forces have fully withdrawn.
He told German newspaper Bild from his Taliban-controlled district in central Afghanistan: “That was our goal and always will be.”
Women will even require PERMITS to leave their homes if the Islamist group re-takes control and enforce Sharia law.
The 38-year-old judge calmly discussed a recent case that he had ruled on regarding a man who had stolen a ring from a house, seeing Rahim decide that his hand must be cut off.
“DEPENDING ON THE CRIME, WE START WITH FINGERTIPS OR FINGERS”
“I asked the owner of the ring if he would also ask that the thief’s leg be hacked off because he not only stole the ring but broke in, which means that he had committed two crimes,” he said.
“But the owner of the house agreed that only the hand would be chopped off.”
In another trial, Rahim ordered that a kidnapping and people smuggling gang should be hanged.
“Depending on the crime, we can start with fingertips or fingers. For worse offenses, we cut the wrist, elbow, or upper arm. Death by stoning or hanging is the only option for the greatest crimes,” he said.
When pressed about what punishments the Taliban determine to be fitting for gay men, Rahim explained the barbaric execution the terror group use.
“Either stoning or he has to stand behind a wall that falls on him. The wall must be 8ft to 10ft high.”
Many women and minorities fearful of their future in Afganistan are already trying to flee.
Rahim said women will be allowed to leave the house under Taliban command, but they will have to gain a permit first.
It will be compulsory to wear a hijab – but women will be allowed to attend school IF their teacher is female.
The formidable presence of the Taliban continues to expand as they capture more and more Afghan districts and the implications of their inhumane style of leadership has sparked international concerns.
Their victorious streak threatens to reverse the efforts of the US and NATO’s two decades of service and waste the colossal costs of fighting the “long war”.
Jihadist forces have been on tenterhooks to forge ahead with their scheme since President Joe Biden announced the withdrawal of troops back in April and have since continued at “lightning speed”.
A recent US intelligence report warned they could take the capital, Kabul, within six months.
The acting US ambassador in Kabul, Ross Wilson, told in a tweet last week how the Taliban’s growing presence has sparked fears that “a system this country’s citizens do not support will be imposed.”
