Banu Negar was brutally killed last night at her home in Ghor, Afghanistan, in the latest violent incident committed by the jihadist regime.
Local media, great Afghan journalist Bilal Sarwary and the BBC reported his apparent execution at the hands of the Taliban.
Banu, a former police officer, was reportedly six months pregnant and also had a young son.
Images posted on social media appear on his body lying on a blood-stained carpet.
Her face appears to have been disfigured in the photo.
And a spooky image shows a pair of bloodstained screwdrivers sitting on a carpet – but it’s unclear how they’re linked to his death.
Other images show blood smeared on the green walls of her home and her body wrapped in a sheet.
Taliban forces reportedly went door to door looking for former members of the Afghan security forces or Western allies.
Etilaatroz reported that Banu worked at the provincial prison before the fall of Afghanistan.
Two residents would have confirmed his death on Saturday between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m.
The media also reports that the secretary of Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid Bilal Karimi did not confirm the incident but “was receiving information”.
He reiterated the militant group’s claim that they pardoned everyone who worked for the old administration.
However, there have been numerous reports of “death squads” chasing their enemies from the Taliban.
It has been claimed that many of those who worked for the government are now in hiding or have tried to flee Afghanistan.
The Taliban carried out brutal repressions and executions when they ruled the country in the late 1990s before being defeated by the West in 2001.
And as they returned to power 20 years later, many members of the militant group are expected to seek revenge.
Afghans who have assisted Western forces – such as interpreters and security officials – are seen as particularly at risk.
Women also fear for the future under the new regime after the brutal, oppressive and sexist laws enacted by the group in the 1990s.
The vicious treatment of women by the Taliban
WITH stoning, beheading and point-blank assault rifle fire, Afghan women face a gruesome fate.
Images from Kabul are already showing images of repainted women, and many prominent women have already been removed from public life.
Many women have chosen to flee the country – and those who remain said they feared for their lives.
During the group’s five-year reign throughout the ’90s, women were left housebound, only able to leave with a male chaperone and wearing a full burqa.
“A woman’s face is a source of corruption,” according to the Taliban.
Women are banned from work, banned from education from the age of 8, banned from seeing a doctor and are constantly threatened with flogging or execution for any violation of “moral” laws.
There have already been reports that girls as young as 12 have been married off to fighters, a woman has been shot for wearing “tight clothes”, and women have been told they cannot. leaving home without a male chaperone.
In 2016, Taliban militants beheaded a woman for shopping alone while her husband was away from home in the village of Larri.
Footage from 2012 showed Taliban militants shooting a woman named Najiba, 23, in the back of the head as she sat in a ditch in Qol.
While another gruesome video showed another woman named Rokhshana, 19, stoned in a shallow grave in Ghor in 2015.
Najiba was charged with adultery, while Rokhshana was charged with having sex with her boyfriend outside of marriage.
Video captured earlier this year showed an anonymous woman screaming as she was whipped by a Taliban fighter accused of speaking to a man on the phone.
And in one of the most infamous images ever captured of Taliban brutality, a woman named Zarmina, a mother of five, was executed in the middle of a football stadium in Kabul in 1999.
Zarmina’s death was watched by 30,000 spectators as she curled up under her veil – showing the terrifying normalization of violence against women under the Taliban.
And meanwhile, Bibi Aisha had her nose and ears cut off by the Taliban as she tried to escape after getting married at 14.
And so in this regard, a former policewoman may have been particularly threatened by the Taliban.
Women are already at risk of whitewashing public life – with storefronts with painted female faces and female newscaster replaced on television.
Some are rising up – a demonstration for women’s rights in Kabul was brutally dispersed yesterday by Taliban special forces using tear gas.
There are fears that the Taliban are on the verge of resuscitating their horrific interpretation of Sharia law – which involves women being murdered for showing too much flesh, claiming basic human rights, having affairs and being victims of rape.
Numerous reports of oppression and abuse have surfaced as they returned to power in recent weeks.
The bullies have reportedly already burned to death a woman they said served poor food to its members.
Taliban squads have been going door-to-door in Afghanistan kidnapping children as young as 12 for use as child wives and sex slaves since their return to power in Afghanistan.
British, American and Allied forces defeated the Taliban in 2001 after allegedly sheltering al-Qaeda terrorists who plotted the September 11 World Trade Center attacks.
Western countries spent 20 years trying to rebuild Afghanistan as a new democratic government was installed and brutal laws enacted by the Taliban came to an end.
However, the occupation was under constant attack by terrorist forces – and US President Joe Biden had declared his desire to end the so-called “eternal wars”.
Some 20 years of work were called off within weeks when the Taliban returned to power – sometimes unopposed – and retook Kabul as Western forces boarded evacuation planes.
US President Joe Biden in particular faces strong criticism over the botched handling of the pullout in what is described as one of the biggest foreign policy disasters since the Vietnam War.
However, resistance forces resisting in Afghanistan’s last free district, the Panjshir Valley, continue to fight the Taliban.
