A video shows Nasser Mohammed, an Afghan comedian and influential man, being shot at with an AK-47 rifle by Taliban members. With videos of him dictating the fundamentalist movement, Nasser was considered “obscene” and a target of persecution, which resulted in his capture by the Taliban. In that video, he continued to joke even when he was slapped and standing next to the armed man, even when his death was already certain.
Nasser was taken from his home in Kandahar province and hanged by gunmen. In a video produced in late July, Afghanistan, also known as Kasha Swan, shows the rebels on either side of him in the back of the car. According to Human Rights Watch, Juan was killed by the Taliban in Kandahar in late July, and the city fell into the hands of jihadists.
He is best known for his videos that mocked the Taliban through song and dance, some of which went viral on dictatorship. In the video showing his final moments, Mohammed continued to joke about the group after his arrest, causing the Taliban to slap him on the right side of the face. The other than him laughs, but the laughter is quickly replaced by the threat of a gun.
According to reports, photos showed Nahar leaning against a tree, shot several times and then slitting his throat and lying on the ground. The Taliban initially denied involvement in the comedian’s death before admitting responsibility – and confirmed that the two men in the car were part of the movement. The panel said the suspects would be arrested and questioned in court, which in principle – should have happened to the comedian as well.
