A video that has gone viral on social media gives a small glimpse of the brutal violation of women's rights under Sharia laws in Afghanistan which recently became a member of the UN Human Rights Council.
In the video, a local imam lashes the afghan woman after being out with relative.
Islam includes many rigid rules of modesty that apply only to women.
In most countries that practice Sharia law under the Male guardianship policy, women are not allowed to get a job, education, or even leave the house or receive medical treatment without the approval of her male guardian (father, husband, brother or uncle).
In Afghanistan, ambiguously defined "moral crimes" or "bad character" can mean jail sentences, lashes in public and even public execution in some parts under Islamic Laws.
Recently Afghanistan has been granted United Nations Human Rights Council membership after getting 130 votes.
130 countries including Western countries voted to elect Afghanistan to the UN Human Rights Council, the same country where child marriage, forced marriage, honor killings and Domestic violence are social norms.
