KABUL: A video, in which, a young man is being shot and killed apparently by the forces of the Islamic Emirate in Rukha district of Panjhir province faced a widespread reaction by the Afghans on social media.
The individual who appears in military uniform on the video is named “Ahmad Bilal”, according to the family.
Bilal’s relatives said that the incident occurred six months ago and that he had no military background.
The video was made six months ago but has recently sparked a widespread reaction by the people of Afghanistan on social media.
“He was working with me as a teacher in Hisarak secondary school. He left five children behind. He had no military background,” said Abdullah, a relative of Ahmad Bilal.
Analysts believe that extrajudicial killings are against the law enforced in the country.
A legal analyst said the extrajudicial killings are against national laws.
“The opening of gunfire based on an (unofficial) court, is in fact a crime which has no justification in Sharia,’ said Ruhullah Sakhizada, a legal analyst.
The Islamic Emirate said that it remains committed to the general amnesty announced by their leader, Mawlawi Hebatullah Akhundzada.
“In general, we are preventing all of the movements which are in contrast with the law,” said Bilal Karimi, a spokesman for the Islamic Emirate, adding that an investigation will be launched into the case.
This comes as several human rights watchdog groups expressed concerns over the extrajudicial killings by the Islamic Emirate that Afghan officials have denied.
