TORONTO, Canada-The brutal death of Farkhunda by the hands of a religious gang in Afghanistan should be condemned by all religions of the world, including Islam, on whose behalf many women are publicly murdered, in open violation of the right to life

On March 23, the 27-year-old religious teacher was brutally beaten, ran over intentionally by a vehicle and burned, then her body thrown in the Kabul River, after been falsely accused of burning a Quran.


After this alarming form of murder by avowed members of the Islamic religion and the Afghan police took place, dozens of men and women held a second demonstration of protest carrying posters with the bloodied face of Farkhunda murdered by the mob.

More than 3,000 people took part in the second march, which was the largest protest in the history of Kabul, in which the participants chanted slogans: "Justice for Farkhunda" and "Death to the murderers".

So far, 28 people have been arrested and 12 police officers suspended as part of the investigation.

Fatana Gailani, prominent human rights activist and director of the Afghanistan Women Council, said she hopes that the incident becomes the catalyst for change in a society traumatized by war, corruption and the absence of leadership.

The Canadian Human Rights International Organization (CHRIO) deplores the brutal death of Farkhunda, supports the statements by the director of the Afghanistan Women Council and requests Ashraf Ghani’s Government to step up efforts to find and bring to justice the culprits of this horrendous crime.

At the same time CHRIO advocates a constitutional reform in the Muslim country in order to respect human rights in general and women in particular. CHRIO also urges the Afghan Government to eliminate the practice of publicly stoning women based on the Islamic Sharia Law.
