Some will consider this a fair death for adultery. The news of another stoning it was also made public, the woman was flogged and shot twice on the head.
Afghanistan is calling for Sharia law to be implemented. At what cost? The life of innocent people.
Anyone saw the movie “THE STONING OF SORAYA M.” She stand accused of committing adultery, even though it was a lie, four confirm witnesses came forward and because of their declaration she was stone to death. Later people found out it was all a lie. Don’t you see the pattern? I don’t like my neighbor I just go to the court, find 4 witnesses and say she, or they, committed adultery, and the couple is killed with no futher confirmation.

KABUL, Afghanistan — Taliban militants in northern Afghanistan stoned a young couple to death for adultery, which a rights group said was the first confirmed use of the punishment here since the hardline Islamist regime was ousted in 2001.
The Taliban-ordered killing comes at a time when international rights groups have raised worries that attempts to negotiate with the Taliban to bring peace to Afghanistan could mean a step backward for human rights in the country. When the Islamist extremists ruled Afghanistan, women were not allowed to leave their houses without a male guardian, and public killings for violations of their harsh interpretation of the Quran were common.
This weekend’s stoning appeared to arise from an affair between a married man and a single woman in Kunduz province’s Dasht-e-Archi district.
The woman, Sadiqa, was 20 years old and engaged to another man, said the Kunduz provincial police chief, Gen. Abdul Raza Yaqoubi. Her lover, 28-year-old Qayum, left his wife to run away with her, and the two had holed up in a friend’s house five days ago, said district government head, Mohammad Ayub Aqyar.
They were discovered by Taliban operatives on Sunday and stoned to death in front a crowd of about 150 men, Aqyar said. He said the woman was brought out and stoned first, then the man a half an hour later.
‘It is against all human rights’
Aqyar decried the punishment, which he said was ordered by two local Taliban commanders.
