The constitution proposed to president Karzai of Afghanistan as part of a "peace initiative" forbids thought and mandates fighting -jihad- as a duty for every muslim, including every last Afghan. Bans all other constitutions and laws as un-islamic.
The Taliban has published a shadow Afghan constitution outlining an alternative hardline government to that of President Hamid Karzai.
On freedom of speech the Taliban charter, which is written in Pashto and Dari, is clear: "Every Afghan has the right to express his feelings through his views, writings or through other means in accordance with the law."
However "un-Islamic thought" is strictly forbidden and "violators will be punished according to sharia" — under the Taliban's strict interpretation of Islamic teachings.
The document also stresses the importance of jihad as an obligation for every citizen. It offers the Taliban's support for the United Nations and upholds human rights — "until it is contrary with the teachings of Islam".
