Brutal: Nawroz is seen standing in white as a man leads his victim's father to execute him
The shocking video shows Nawroz, wrapped in white, praying on a mat before standing up to be killed.
A local man then leads the victim's father towards him to fire the deadly shots saying 'hold the gun right'.
The weapon is then fired twice, but concerned that Nawroz is not dead he continues to shoot into his body as a person in the crowd shouts 'he is still alive'.
Dead: His body is seen lying still on the floor, covered in blood, as people crowd around to check he is not breathing
Morbid: A large crowd is seen gathered in the background to watch the execution
But another calls out 'stop shooting, you donkey,' and the body is left slumped on the ground and covered in blood as people swarm around to check he is dead.
Final moments: Nawroz is seen in white praying as he prepares for death
Witness Jalaludin saw the execution and says the death sentence came after a meeting of religious leaders in the area.
'The mullahs asked the father to forgive Nawroz and to take some of his family's land and women in compensation. But the father refused, so the mullahs ordered an execution,' he told CNN.
After no trial an attempt to buy his way out of the crime afterwards was refused because local warlord Mullah Mustafa will not take bribes.
Nawroz's family say that he had first said he had received help to kill his lover's husband but then after being interrogated by Mustafa he changed his story to one of killing alone after allegedly being beaten.
His cousin Sikander told CNN: 'We'd like strong government. There's no police or government presence here, and Mullah Mustafa has government contacts.'
The execution was committed in an area away from NATO forces or Hamid Karzai's government.
Mullah Mustafa keeps the region from Taliban control so the people are happy for him to rule with violence.
It is feared that the country is again falling into widespread lawlessness after a series of public executions in recent years.
Last year the Taliban executed a young couple who eloped, by stoning them, the first killing since their power base collapsed.
Human rights groups want the current Karzai government to impose rule of law and bring in a proper judiciary system.
While NATO countries with forces stationed in the country are being encouraged to pump more money into establishing law and order.
