Tragedy in Afghanistan, as the refusal to marry a man in the Iman Sahib district of the Kunduz province  left a 15-year-old girl beheaded.

The victim, a 15-year-old girl named Gisa, was decapitated simply because she refused to marry a man.


A police spokesman said two men, named Sadeq and Massoud, were arrested following the teenage girl’s murder.

The two men are understood to be close relatives of the victim that live in the same village.


According to local authorities, the two men were hoping to marry the girl, but advances were denied by the victim’s father, causing the men to leave the girl beheaded.


Gisa’s father refused the marriage proposal because he said his daughter was too young to wed.

While Afghanistan’s Taliban regime, which was notorious for oppressing women, was ousted in 2001, violence towards women has still persisted in the country.

The UN has said there is a “long way to go” before the rights of Afghan women are fully protected.

It is difficult to assess how widespread the epidemic of violence against women in Afghanistan is as many cases go unreported, but according to research by Afghanistan’s Independent Human Rights Commission, in the year twelve months leading up to March 2011, over 2,000 acts of violence against women were committed.


Afghanistan still has a long way to go when it comes to giving and enforcing women equal rights to men.

As obnoxious as he sounds, Coleman is perhaps best known for taking “selfies 24/7″ because, why […]
