Taliban fighters are reportedly now on another brutal mission as they are hunting down porn sites to prepare a kill list of Afghanistan prostitutes. The force is searching thoroughly and giving names to prostitutes whose sex videos have been found during the 20-year allied occupation of the country.

Sun Online quoted some security sources who told the publication that the sex videos of brothel workers have made their way onto niche porn sites, which the Taliban has found for its brutal purpose. An insider said that the death squads are now “hell-bent” on “hunting down” the sex workers to publicly kill or “humiliate for their own pleasure”. The source added that prostitutes will likely be gang-raped first before being “beheaded, stoned or hung”.

A source said, “The Taliban are displaying the height of hypocrisy with this horrific witch-hunt. They pretend to condemn pornography, but are digging deep into the most obscure and deeply-hidden adult sites to find videos that show Afghan brothels so they can identity and slaughter or enslave the women who worked in them,” before adding, “Because the videos show obvious location markers of the brothels, these women are now in serious danger of being kidnapped or murdered in the most horrific ways imaginable.”

Though sex work in Afghanistan is a criminal offense, it has continued there as an allied occupation. A prostitute who only identified herself as Zainab said she started selling her body to feed her five siblings after her younger brother became sick. The 20-year-old said, “I was 13 years old when my father died. My mother had long been sick, and as the oldest, I had to take responsibility for my family. I started working as a housekeeper, but the money was never enough.”

“Most of the men are young, between 25 and 30 years old, and most of them are married. They know my employer and call her to arrange an appointment. Some men request to choose from several girls. They take 10 minutes, sometimes 20. Some use condoms, but not all of them do. Every time I’m alone in a room with a man, I am scared,” Zainab added. Heather Barr, co-director for women’s rights at Human Rights Watch, said she initially saw women in Afghanistan working as sex workers in 2012 and found that most of them were forced to do so or it was their only means to survive.

Meanwhile, some earlier reports claimed that the Taliban forces were on a door-to-door manhunt to abduct kids as young as 12 to make them their sex slaves. Not just that, a former female police officer also claimed that some people of the group had sex with corpses. The woman identified only as Muskan said that they “don't care whether the person is dead or alive”.
