Sickening footage has shown a Taliban enforcer savagely beating two women in Afghanistan, apparently for going shopping without male “guardians”. The harrowing clip surfaced just days after three women and nine men were publicly flogged in a football stadium in a stark illustration of the way in which the religious extremist organisation has tried to turn the clock back since returning to power last year.

The two-minute film, which was actually shot in 2020, was shared by UK-based Shabnam Nasimi, Executive Director of Conservative Friends of Afghanistan on Thursday.

It shows two women on their knees while the man, dressed in a military-style jacket, repeatedly lashes them with a flexible cane.

As his indiscriminate blows rain down, some striking the women on the head, they can be heard crying out in distress.

Undeterred, he returns to attack them again while other men watch.

Ms Nasimi said: “This is the Taliban brutally lashing a woman in Takhar province for going to the shop without a male guardian.

“The women of Afghanistan are experiencing hell on earth under the Taliban regime. We mustn’t turn a blind eye.”

Hundreds gathered at the stadium last month to watch the first public flogging at such a venue since the Taliban returned to power last August.

The office of the governor of Logar province, south of the capital of Kabul, had invited “honourable scholars, mujahideen, elders, tribal leaders and local people” to the stadium in the town of Pul Alam in Logar.

The invitations for the early morning event had been extended via social media.
