The leftist-Islamic alliance continues to show signs of wear and tear. Will Ravina Shamdasani now apologize to the Taliban to avoid sounding “Islamophobic”? Will he seek out some deceitful Western Muslim mouthpiece to assure the gullible left that the Taliban is misinterpreting and misapplying sharia? Most likely, she will simply ignore Zabiullah Mujahid’s statements, but eventually the leftist establishment of which the UN is an integral part will find these contradictions impossible to avoid.
“Taliban Repudiate UN Criticism of Their Flogging Punishments as an ‘Insult to Islam’,” by Daniel Stewart, News 360, November 26, 2022:
…The spokeswoman for the United Nations Human Rights Office, Ravina Shamdasani, declared last Friday “dismayed” by the use of lashes as public punishment with cases such as the one that occurred last Wednesday in the province of Logar, where 14 people were victims of this “abhorrent” punishment.
In response, the usual Taliban spokesman and deputy information minister, Zabiullah Mujahid, considered these statements an “insult to Islam and a violation of international principles.”
“Countries and organizations must not allow self-interested people to make irresponsible and provocative comments about Islam and its rules on their behalf,” he said on his Twitter account.
Taliban leader Mullah Hebatullah Ajundzada recently ordered Afghan judges to fully apply ‘sharia’, or Islamic law, against those who commit a range of crimes that could be punishable even by public amputations or stoning for offenses such as robbery, kidnapping or sedition. .
