Alleged slap in face costs 300,000 dollars and a sheep in Afghanistan

Kabul: A traditional council of elders in Afghanistan has told a former lawmaker to pay an Afghan minister 300,000 dollars in cash along with a sheep to compensate for an alleged slap in the face. A tribal leader and deputy chief of the country’s High Peace Council, Haji Din Mohammad, confirmed on Thursday that the council had imposed the fine.
In September, the minister of Hajj and religious affairs, Abdul Hakim Munib, accused ex-lawmaker Mullah Tarakhel Mohammadi of insulting and physically attacking him inside the presidential palace mosque where they both attended a Friday prayer. The minister claimed that he was physically attacked but the mullah said it was just a verbal clash. (DPA)
