Kabul (BNA) Taliban as the most brutal political movement in the country, have reacted against the execution of 8 criminals and called the move a blatant violation of human rights principles. 
The reaction comes in time, the Taliban have been blamed for the highest rate of civilian death in Afghanistan.
BNA commentator writes:
Recently, 8 criminals, who were sentenced to death by authoritative court for committing crimes such as children abuse, rape, launching suicide and terrorist attacks, were executed.
The execution of those people came in time, while the Afghan society was severely suffering from evil phenomenon such as offences against children and women, armed robberies and finally terrorist and suicide attacks.
Investigating the perpetrators of those crimes and bring them to the court and implementing justice against them was emerged as an urgent need of the time.  Behaving such a way may cause the psychological comforts of the victims in one hand and on other hand obtaining the rights of oppressed from oppressors is a basic justice in dear Islam.
Recently, 8 people who had committed the most awful crimes against our people, the history not remember, were executed.
While the families of the victims, asked justice from Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, the execution of the criminals, did not take immediately and accidentally, they have been tried according to the laws of Afghanistan and the three courts fairly sentenced them to death penalty. Also, the courts made the decision earlier; it needed the endorsement of the president.
The president, with great patience and care studied the cases and after receiving the required advices of judicial and justice experts and organs signed the verdict of the relevant court, because they were deserved to capital punishment according to the law and justice.
But the Taliban who daily violate human rights, issuing a statement, shamefully react against the execution of the criminals and consider it as a violation of human rights.
Now, a question rises, what did Taliban who cry for implementing of sharia law, do against such criminals? 
On the other hand, Taliban talking about ensuring human rights, especially of the prisoners refer to United Nations organization, international Red Crescent, the conference of Islamic countries and Human Rights Organization and ask to interfere for ending such executions.
The people ask that the United Nations as a credible international organization repeatedly asked Taliban to stop violence and killing people and avoid planting roadside bombs which cause great casualties among civilians, did the Taliban answered positively?
And now ask that international organization to prevent the execution of criminals whose crimes have been approved by undeniable documents and evidences. On the other hand this notorious group asks to be dealt against prisoners of war according to humane laws.
The Taliban should ask theirs elves, what have done against war prisoners? 
Here we just point out to some brutal and barbaric actions of notorious Taliban who committed against civilian just during the current year as follow:
Killing of several student in Jalraiz district, assassination of a brother and sister just because their father was a police officer, executing a 12 year old boy in Panjwai district, Kandahar province, because his brother served in police ranks, executing Mrs. Najiba a young woman in sommelier court, killing a number of people including women and children, participating in a wedding party in Helmand province, the same slaughtering in Balkh district of Balkh province, murdering of some peddler children in Wazir Akber Khan area, suicide attack on prayers in Faryab province during Eid festivals, targeting the participants of wedding party in Aybak district, Samangan province, killing of 19 persons traveling  in passenger bus in Farah province, who were heading to a wedding ceremony and hundreds of other evil crimes, if we mention here makes a long list.
Aren’t they of violation of human rights? Why didn’t Taliban condemn these barbaric crimes?
And now cry out for the execution of some criminals who were sentenced to death according to the laws of the country and executed. But the killing of the participants of wedding parties, passengers and police personnel who work for peace and tranquility of people are justifiable but execution of a few criminal is violation of human rights.
The barbaric treatment of Taliban against people makes it clear that this notorious group have no knowledge about human rights and Islamic sharia.
