Afghanistan: Taliban’s vice and virtue agent murders a teenage girl for refusing marriage proposal

Mullah Yasin was not acting according to Islamic law, which does not require a woman to marry a man simply because he wants to marry her. However, the commodification of women under Islamic law leads to the idea that a woman is being intolerably and inexcusably impertinent if she doesn’t submit to anything she is directed to do.
