Three stoned, shot dead for adultery

Pro-Taliban activists in a Pakistani tribal area stoned and then shot dead two men and a woman for alleged adultery. Some 800 tribesmen watched the executions by the pro-Taliban Lashkar-i-Islam (Army of Islam) group on Wednesday in the Bara region of the Khyber tribal district on the border with Afghanistan.

The trio were tied up with ropes, and tribal elders and other men gathered at a patch of open ground and stoned them. Two masked members of the hardline group then shot them with Kalashnikov rifles.

“The Lashkar-i-Islam men caught them and after investigations it was proved that they were guilty of adultery,” a group member said, on condition of anonymity.

Members of the religious group, led by cleric Mangal Bagh, raided a house on Monday and abducted the three after local residents suspected them of “illicit” activities, local residents said. The accused men were named as Allah Noor and Shahzad while the woman was identified as Taslima.

    This is disgusting! It’s illiteracy and backwardness that is making headlines and defaming the image of Pakistan in the eyes of the world. And Im sure the govt is too busy playing with the judicial system to pay any heed to this matter.

    U can not really condemn such an act since it is a punishment for adultry in the Koran too but unfortuately acting out on these laws is only possible in rural and far flung tribal areas only where our religion’s practices are twisted and moulded in to extremism. I would like to see if these so called upholders of Islam would dare to carry out such a public execution in Lahore or Islamabad or Karachi.

    IT IS WRONG…WRONG… WRONG!!

    HOW CAN YOU JUSTIFY THIS IN A COUNTRY WHERE WOMEN ARE RAPED INFRONT OF 100s OF PPL WITH NO MORALITY? WHERE IS THE ISLAM THEN? GOD HELP THESE MANIACS AND PAKISTAN!

    sawaal quran mein honay ya na honay ka nahi hai. its morally incorrect to carry out something in a country run by courts and legal frameworks. Although the current state of affairs mock my statement but it is what it is. There is no question about it that this was a wrong practice and SHOULD be condemned!

    Holier you might be right to some extent only but you didn’t notice that I actually am against this as well. But you can not say that Quran mein honay ki baat nahi hai. It is the book that defines us and guides us. If it is in it then it is in it. Issue is on how to follow it properly which we don’t.

    sometimes I wonder where are we heading as a nation… we either want to adapt all the vices of the West or hardline our views to epic and rigid proportions.
