This report gives a small glimpse into the brutal violation of women's rights under the Sharia laws in Afghanistan, which recently became a member of the UN Human Rights Council.
Women in Afghanistan are treated as the property of the men and continue to suffer oppression and abuse, but no one in the West seems to care, not the EU, not the UN, and not even human rights organizations.
In the Islamic culture of Afghanistan Using a woman's name in public is frowned upon and can be considered an insult. Afghan men are forbidden from saying the names of their sisters, wives or mothers in public. Women are only referred to as the mother, daughter or sister of the eldest male in their family, and Afghan law dictates that only the father's name should be recorded on a birth certificate.

In Afghanistan, ambiguously defined "moral crimes" or "bad character" can mean jail sentences, lashes in public and even public execution under Islamic Laws.
According to Islamic tradition, the "honor" of the entire family is measured by women's behavior. Any action that may be perceived as harming the family's honor may cost the woman her life. In other words, a woman is required not only to obey Islam including its strict codes of modesty but also to completely obey her male guardians (husband, father, brother and even uncle).
Sharia laws permits child marriage, forced marriage, child brides, polygamy, FGM, acid attacks, honor killings, flogging, beheading and stoning.
Unfortunately the UN ignores the crimes against humanity taking place in Afghanistan and even elected the country to be a member of the UN Human Rights Council.
130 countries including Western countries voted to elect Afghanistan to the UN Human Rights Council, a country where child marriage, forced marriage, honor killings and Domestic violence are social norms.
