Islamic Emirate Leader Forbids Extra-Judicial Punishment

The Islamic Emirate leader has ordered that no one should be punished without a court order, and that the authority to punish is only with a Sharia court and no one has the right to arbitrarily punish and detain someone, a spokesman for the Islamic Emirate said.

Islamic Emirate spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid told TOLOnews that the order also forbade filming videos at the scene of a punishment.

“No one has the right to beat someone without the court’s order, even if it is a small physical action, the court should have ordered it. The court implements the orders based on Sharia. Others do not have the right to beath someone with a stick or whip,” he said.

Over the past nearly two years since the Islamic Emirate came to power, many countries and international organizations have repeatedly voiced concerns about arbitrary detentions, harassment and the violation of human rights in Afghanistan.

“The decree should improve the lives of the people. A decree without being practically implemented is not helping the people of Afghanistan. The positive result of the decree should be obvious among the people of Afghanistan,” said Shakir Hayat, political analyst.

“The constitution should be enforced in Afghanistan and there should be laws for punishment, so the people of Afghanistan can live under its line,” said Nisar Ahmad Shirzai, a political analyst.

The residents of Kabul meanwhile called on the Islamic Emirate to pay serious attention to identify the criminals before detaining them.

“If someone is mistakenly arrested, and he/she is detained somewhere for 5 or 10 days and is being beaten and torture, it is a crime,” said Mohammadullah, a resident of Kabul.

According to Mujahid, the violators of the order of the Islamic Emirate’s leader will face punishment.
