Despite recent praise from the Biden administration, the Taliban appear to have returned to ruthless tactics just one month after seizing control of Afghanistan. Four bodies were recently displayed for the public to see, putting Afghans and the world on notice that the hardline Taliban government will rule with an iron fist.
Taliban officials brought four bodies to the central square in the western city of Herat, the Associated Press reported. Three corpses were transported to other parts of the city for public display, according to local resident Wazir Ahmad Seddiqi. A crowd gathered in the city square to see a bloodied body hanged from a crane on Saturday. Reuters reported that the bloodstained corpse swinging on the crane had a note pinned to the man's chest that read, "This is the punishment for kidnapping."
Taliban officials claimed that the four men were caught participating in a kidnapping plot earlier on Saturday. The alleged suspects were reportedly killed during a gunfight with police. Ziaulhaq Jalali — the Taliban-appointed police chief in Herat — claimed that kidnappers abducted a father and son, who were rescued. A Taliban militant and a civilian were wounded during the shootout.
"The aim of this action is to alert all criminals that they are not safe," a Taliban commander told the AP.
"In order to be a lesson for other kidnappers not to kidnap or harass anyone, we hung them in the squares of the city and made this clear to everyone that anyone who steals or abducts or does any action against our people will be punished," Muhajir said.
Is this who Jen Psaki called “businesslike and professional?” https://t.co/BJAUxToXQh— Congressman Carlos A. Gimenez (@Congressman Carlos A. Gimenez)1632572875.0
