Taliban Beats, Tortures, And Murders Woman Who Wrote That The Taliban Abuses Women

(Hat Tip: TROP)

From DNAIndia:

Banerjee's bullet-riddled body, with some of the hair ripped off her head, was found on Thursday morning.

The militants who barged into the Afghan home of Indian author Sushmita Banerjee and later shot her asked her why she wrote nasty things about them, the victim's in-laws told her Kolkata-based relatives on Saturday. [...]

In 1998, she wrote the bestselling memoir "Kabuliwalar Bangali Bou" (A Kabuliwala's Bengali Wife), offering a vivid description of the suffering of women under the Taliban.

Yeah, that will convince the world she was lying...
