. What is Sharia law? What does it mean for women in Afghanistan? « JO LEE MAGAZINE

BBC – In the first press briefing after taking control in Kabul, a Taliban spokesman said issues such as the media and women’s rights will be respected “within the framework of Islamic law”, but the group has not yet provided any details of what that will mean in practice.

When they were last in power, the Taliban introduced or supported punishments such as public executions of convicted murderers and adulterers.

Sharia law is Islam’s legal system. It is derived from both the Koran, Islam’s central text, and fatwas – the rulings of Islamic scholars.
