Two men have been publicly executed at a football stadium in Afghanistan’s southeastern Ghazni province.

On Thursday (February 22), the Supreme Court of Taliban-controlled Afghanistan announced this information. The two men were executed with the approval of Taliban chief Hibatullah Akhundzada. They were accused of murder.

The Supreme Court also said that after the murder charges against the two persons were proved, they got all kinds of legal benefits. After completing all the processes, they were executed. One of the two people who were publicly executed was named Syed Jamal. Another one eats gulls.

According to the Taliban, Syed Jamal Maidan was a resident of Lora village in Wardak province. He killed a man named Amir Mohammad seven years ago. On the other hand, Gul Khan killed a man named Mohammad Qasim five years ago. Both of them committed murder with a knife.

Afghanistan’s public execution comes at a time when international human rights organizations are claiming that ordinary people are not getting justice under the Taliban regime. Afghan media outlet Khama Press reported that civilians were asked to attend the stadium to watch the executions. High-ranking leaders of the Taliban were also present there.
