Afghanistan has effectively legalised domestic violence by changing a law so it will become impossible for anyone to testify against relatives, thus making Afghanistan the most idiotic country on Earth.

 

The legislation would allow men to attack their wives, children and sisters without the fear of punishment.

 

It would ban relatives of the accused from bringing evidence against them.

 

‘It will make it impossible to prosecute cases of violence against women. The most vulnerable people

 

won’t get justice now.’

 

Those who carry out honour killings would be impossible to prosecute.

 

Cases such as that of Sahar Gul would never get to court.

 

The child was chained in a basement where she was starved, burned and beaten after refusing to prostitute herself to make money for her family.

 

A heroin addict who told his wife to sell her jewellery so he could buy drugs hacked off her nose and lips when she refused to do so.

 

Despite life for women improving since the end of Taliban rule, domestic abuse is still rife and forced marriages are the norm.

 

Women are not encouraged to go to school and suicide rates for women are among the highest in the world.
