WHYS 60: Public execution of Afghan woman

Earlier we had a conversation on WHYS about a video of an Afghan woman who was publicly executed, allegedly for committing adultery.

During our programme, Hameed said "as Afghans we have to accept responsibility that we have a culture of violence." Bunsen Bwana tweeted WHYS saying it's "pathetic how many Muslim men disguise criminal behaviours with Islam," while the Afghanistan government condemned the killing as "un-Islamic and inhuman'.

What do you think? Does this execution reflect a "culture of violence" in Afghan society or within Islam?
