The Horror of Taliban Justice: Infamous ‘Ministry of Propagation of Virtue and Prevention of Vice' Is Back

China has its Ministry of State State Security. In Russia, the Ministry of Justice serves Vladimir Putin, while Kim Jong-un’s notorious State Security Ministry of North Korea does his bidding. In Afghanistan, the Taliban’s Ministry of Propagation of Virtue and Prevention of Vice (MPVPV), which was banned after the US invasion, has reappeared in the wake of Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from the war-torn country.

The infamous ministry was charged with implementing the Islamist extremist group’s strict interpretation of Sharia law, which included a prohibition on women leaving their homes without a male companion and a ban on music and other forms of entertainment, as reported by The New York Post.

Mohammad Yousuf, who says he is around 32 years old and responsible for the “central zone” of Afghanistan, explained the MPVPV and its purpose to The Post:

The main purpose is to serve Islam. Therefore, it is compulsory to have [a] Ministry of Vice and Virtue. We will punish as per the Islamic rules. Whatever Islam guides us, we will punish accordingly.

Yousuf said “actions will be taken” on the “major sins of Islam,” such as sexual intercourse outside marriage, killing someone, and theft. Taliban-style, of course.

Islam has its rules for major sins. For example, killing someone has different rules. If you do it intentionally, if you know the person and intentionally kill the person, you will be killed back. If not intentional, then there might be another punishment like paying a certain amount of money.

If there is a theft, the hand will be cut off.

If there is illegal intercourse, they (violators) will be stoned.

“We just want a peaceful country with Islamic rules and regulations, Yousuf added. “Peace and Islamic rulings are the only wishes we have.”

Nancy Pelosi and the entirety of the Democrat Party were unavailable for comment.

As The Post noted, in pre-war Afghanistan, MPVPV “moral police” were established on “every street” to inflict harsh punishments on violators including whipping, amputations, and public executions. Now, signs of such incidents have begun to reappear on the streets of Kabul.

Joe Biden, Antony Blinken, Lloyd Austin, and Mark Milley were unavailable for comment.

In related news, as my colleague Brandon Morse noted in a recent article, Western sentiments related to justice, morality, and honor are laughed at by Islamist extremists, who are “only bent on doing two things; subjugation and murder” — while the Biden administration naively continues to whine about seeing “more of the same” from the Taliban, after the brutal terrorist organization promised to “behave.”

Really, Joe? What the hell did you people expect from a group of fanatics with a seventh-century mentality, comprised in large part of illiterate sorts with a fondness for goats, burning women alive, and forcibly “marrying 12-year-old girls?

Team Joe. Making America a laughingstock again. Good job, Joe.
