Nadia Anjuman wrote poetry in secret when she lived under the Taliban.
Recently, her first book of poetry Gule Dudi- or Dark Flower- was published to wide success in literary circles.
And so, her husband beat her to death.
According to the Times:
"Friends say her family was furious, believing that the publication of poetry by a woman about love and beauty had brought shame on it."
And so, love and beauty are shameful in the eyes of totalitarians.
