For most couples, the happiest day of their lives is their wedding day. For one unidentified Afghan couple, the happiest day of their lives turned into a nightmare after they were stoned to death under the hudood system.
What type of terrible crime did the couple commit that warranted this type of heinous punishment?
Local sources told Amnesty International that the couple had eloped to Pakistan, but returned to their village of Mullah Qulli in Archi district of Kunduz after being told that their families had agreed to marry them.
Yes, that’s right. The Taleban found it criminal that a couple dare cross into Pakistan to be married. I suppose one Taleban member was very angry he wasn’t invited to the wedding or the reception, but that’s not worthy of executing two people!
