The US condemnation came a day after the Taliban official, Mullah Nooruddin Turabi, said in an interview with The Associated Press that executions and amputations are necessary punishments to maintain security in Afghanistan.
Since taking control of Afghanistan on August 15, the Taliban have launched a campaign of enchantment to rehabilitate their hardline image from the 1996-2001 era. While in power, the Taliban carried out public executions, whipped men who did not pray in mosques, and restricted daily movements and adopted their own extreme interpretation of Islamic law or Sharia.
However, the Taliban have not changed much of their core values as Turabi emphasized in his interview with The Associated Press that the group would carry out any punishment it deems appropriate and demanded the international community not to interfere.
