On Wednesday, a Taliban spokesperson named Zabihullah Mujahid tweeted that the Council of Ministers have come to a decision to not do public executions as punishments until it is approved or ordered by the apex court.
The spokesperson tweeted that public executions that are not approved by the court must be avoided. The offender’s punishment must come along with a reminder that people know about the crime.

د اسلامي امارت د وزیرانو شورا پریکړه:
په هغو سزاګانو کې چې د مجرم تشهیر ضرورنه وي او محاکمو يې د سزا په صورت کې د تشهیر تجویز نه وي کړی، د مجرم له اعدام او جسد ځړولو څخه دې ډډه وشي.
او که مجرم ته سزا ورکول کیږي باید له سزا سره يې د جرم یادونه هم وشي چې خلک يې په جرم خبر وي.Advertisement

The spokesperson added that if the convict is sentenced for public execution then the officials have to explain the reason behind it. This will make the public aware.
US State Department spokesperson Ned Price said that the US comes in peace with Afghanistan especially the minorities. He also adds that the US demands that the Taliban doesn’t go ahead with appalling public executions as punishments.
