Sure, sure, Afghans till now will erasing their children's hunger by just putting them to sleep by giving them anxiety tablets instead of filling their stomach with food, because the parents don't have money to buy food nor will the Taliban provide them free food but now the Taliban have given them another way to forget food - prayers :

Who needs food when you can sustain yourself happily on prayers. The Taliban will easily arrange for prayers as ever. And since you don't need food you can as well sell your organs to invest that money to pay SpaceX for a future seat on the Mars cruise. You can sell your daughters too since who needs a female in Taliban land. Ah, how bliss is the "Islamic" Emirate of Afghanistan...
In a Hadith a sahaba came to prophet to complain of hunger and showed him that he has tied a rock on his abdomen to Decrease his hunger pangs
The prophet showed him that he himself has tied two stones to control the hunger pangs.

Meaning to say is this, what we modernist Muslims think is completely opposite how the prophet and his followers thought.

Anyhow, imagine a nation beside Afghanistan, land of five rivers, could satisfy hunger of both nations but due to mismanagement at each sub sector of the economy is itself forced to import wheat/lentils/animal feed.

We need to fix ourselves first, taliban and their issues will come second

The Taliban flogged 27 Afghans, including women, in front of a large crowd on Thursday, a day after publicly executing a convicted murderer for the first time since they returned to power last year.

Their chief spokesman also pushed back at international criticism of the public punishments, calling it a lack of respect for Islam.

Despite promising a softer version of the harsh rule that characterised their first stint in power, the Taliban have gradually reintroduced an extreme interpretation of Islamic law — or Sharia.

Chief spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said the criticism showed outsiders “don’t have respect for the beliefs, laws and internal issues of the Muslims”.

In a statement, the supreme court said 27 “criminals” were flogged on Thursday in Charikar, the capital of Parwan province, around 50 kilometres north of the capital Kabul.

It said nine women were among those punished for crimes including “sodomy, deception, fake witness, forgery, selling and buying tablet K (drugs), debauchery, escaping from home, highway robbery and illegal relationships”.

“Each of these criminals confessed their crimes before the court without any force and was satisfied with the punishment,” it said.

A witness told AFP more than 1,000 people watched as the floggings were administered at a stadium in the city.

“The public was chanting ‘Allahu Akbar’ and ‘we want the law of God to be implemented on our soil’,” he said.

They taunted those being flogged with cries of “will you do that again”, the witness added.

Those flogged writhed in pain as they received between 20 to 39 blows from a cane “about a metre long and four fingers wide” from a team of Taliban who took turns.

Eye for an eye​

On Wednesday, a crowd of hundreds watched a convicted murderer shot to death by his victim’s father in Farah, the capital of the province of the same name.

The Taliban said it was a just example of qisas, an element of Sharia that allows for an eye-for-an-eye punishment.

The Taliban have stepped up public punishments since Supreme Leader Hibatullah Akhundzada last month ordered judges to fully enforce Islamic law.

Akhundzada, who has not been filmed or photographed in public since the Taliban returned to power, rules by decree from Kandahar, the movement’s birthplace and spiritual heartland.

Officials insist capital punishment is only carried out after a thorough examination by three courts and Akhundzada reviews the final decision in each case.

News of Wednesday’s public execution was met with condemnation abroad, with the United States calling it “an affront to the dignity and the human rights of all Afghans”.

“This indicates to us that the Taliban seek a return to their regressive and abusive practices of the 1990s,” State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters.

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres expressed “deep concern” at the report.
