Evil Taliban fighters have refused to rule out returning Afghanistan to Sharia law and are set to use grim punishments to enforce their rules.

Barbaric practises – such as death by stoning, amputations of hands and feet and bloody executions carried out in public – are set to return to the troubled country, reports The Mirror.

Afghanistan’s Western-backed Government is in turmoil and looks set to collapse with President Ashraf Ghani fleeing the country earlier today.

A spokesperson for the Islamic extremist group refused to rule out reinstating the gruesome punishments when talking to the BBC.

“I can’t say right now,” Taliban member Suhail Shaheen said.

“That's up to the judges in the courts and the laws. (They) will be appointed according to the law of the future government."

Sharia law is Islam's legal system and features some tough punishments if it is not obeyed.

Shaheen claimed the Taliban’s policy is to continue giving girls access to education and work.

But the BBC reported that some women in the country have already been told they’re not allowed to leave the house alone, whilst women working in banks have been told they will be replaced by men.

Britain is sending 600 brave troops into the bloodbath, with the aim to rescue as many UK nationals from the area as possible.
