A Taliban official stated that the hands of thieves be cut off. Additionally, he added that those involved in illegal intercourse will get stoned in public. During the previous rule, stoning was generally just applicable for women. However, Yusuf claimed that both men and women involved in ‘illegal intercourse’ will get the same draconian treatment.
He also added that four witnesses are vital for conviction.“If there is a small difference in the story, there will be no punishment. But if all of them are saying the same thing. The same way, and at the same time, there will be punishment. The Supreme Court will overlook all these issues. Punishment follows if they are guilty,” clarified Yusuf.
