The Sexual Hyprocrisy of the Taliban

I thought that this must be aberrant behavior peculiar to the individual portrayed in the film because I know that the Quran strictly forbids homosexual relations.

To be clear, we are not accusing homosexuals of being predatory pedophiles; though some are sick and engage in the same aberrant abuse of children as straight people with this predilection. Pedophilia is an incurable proclivity which even chemical castration does not correct.

In fact, many pedophiles justify their behavior with the delusional assertion that the children they sexually abuse and rape enticed them and are willing participants.The men and women who seek out children to abuse can mentally cripple their victims for the rest of their lives.

Such is the case of with the Bacha Bazi of Afghanistan. A little known scourge, it involves older men seeking out boys to enslave to gratify their sexual desires. This practice has been on the increase since the Taliban no longer controls the populace’s behavior through fear and threat of death. Instead, the moral excesses the Taliban accused and executed others for, is now openly engaged in as these once ‘moral arbiters’ select young boys to forcefully sodomize and enslave.

Prior to this, when the Taliban was in control of certain regions of Afghanistan, women were stoned to death for what they perceived as the slightest infractions against the moral code of conduct and men were at risk of punishment or death for homosexual relations or disrespecting the religious edicts of the Taliban’s version of Qur’an.

However, in many cases the Taliban’s codes of conduct were not found in the Quran, and the men who foisted unduly restrictive guidelines upon women were egregious human rights offenders at least, and misogynist at worse.

Currently, the Taliban is either engaged in the war against America, or trying to survive in a leaderless world now that Osama bin Laden and many of his closest military advisors have been killed in targeted drone attacks.

Since the unraveling of Al-Qaeda’s strict religious hierarchy, many Taliban are now engaged in a gross human rights violations because the energy that was previously directed at the West has dissipated. Now, this hatred and religious fervor has found expression in the abuse of the weakest members of their society.

Child sexual slavery in Afghanistan is on the rise as men groom young boys, many who are in their preteens, to be their sexual slaves until they tire of them. Many of these men are married but in fact are pedophiles and closet homosexuals. Now they can openly flaunt their preference for young boys because this type of behavior can be practiced without fear of reprisal.

    Ayanna Nahmias I strongly object on the title of this article after reading it and conclude that its nothing but a pile of contradictions, as you are accepting the fact that due to fear of punishment during Taliban rule it ended while on the other hand you are blaming Taliban for spreading and supporting it what a load of rubbish.
