Signandsight provides a list of the rules the Taliban must follow: Every Mujahid must abide by the following rules:
1) A Taliban commander is permitted to extend an invitation to all Afghans who support infidels so that they may convert to the true Islam.
I guess the true Islam is whatever the nutcases say it is. Muslims that follow something else must be infidels.2) We guarantee to any man who turns his back on infidels, personal security and the security of his possessions. But if he becomes involved in a dispute, or someone accuses him of something, he must submit to our judiciary.
Automatic application of the Taliban version of Sharia Law..... 7) A Mujahid who takes a foreign infidel as prisoner with the consent of a group leader may not exchange him for other prisoners or money.
What if he takes a prisoner without his group leaders permission?.... 17) Mujahideen have no right to confiscate money or personal possessions of civilians.
That power is limited to the commanders.8) Mujahideen should refrain from smoking cigarettes.
Can they drink booze?19) Mujahideen are not allowed to take young boys with no facial hair onto the battlefield or into their private quarters.
If they want to have a homosexual relation with another man he must have a beard.21) Anyone with a bad reputation or who has killed civilians during the Jihad may not be accepted into the Taliban movement. If the highest leader has personally forgiven him, he will remain at home in the future.
I bet they don't impose this restriction very often..... 24) It is forbidden to work as a teacher under the current puppet regime, because this strengthens the system of the infidels. True Muslims should apply to study with a religiously trained teacher and study in a Mosque or similar institution. Textbooks must come from the period of the Jihad or from the Taliban regime.
At least they won't be pretending to be teachers.25) Anyone who works as a teacher for the current puppet regime must recieve a warning. If he nevertheless refuses to give up his job, he must be beaten. If the teacher still continues to instruct contrary to the principles of Islam, the district commander or a group leader must kill him.
Maybe the prohibition of being a teacher is just to protect the Taliban from being killed by the group leader.26) Those NGOs that come to the country under the rule of the infidels must be treated as the government is treated. They have come under the guise of helping people but in fact are part of the regime. Thus we tolerate none of their activities, whether it be building of streets, bridges, clinics, schools, madrases (schools for Koran study) or other works. If a school fails to heed a warning to close, it must be burned. But all religious books must be secured beforehand.
They sure don't like improvements to the infrastructure do them?
