    TALEBAN - IS THIS THE MESSAGE OF ISLAM?

    The Taleban of Afghanistan practice a fanatically strict interpretation of Islamic law - the Shariah. Other countries - Pakistan, Iran & Sudan have pressed into law certain aspects of Shariah. The Fundamentalists in Algeria and Turkey have been blocked from power by the Army and its secular constitution.
    Under the rule of Shariah, the Taleban force the women to wear the veil and ban them from working; girls are prohibited from going to schools. Men have been forced to grow beard. Alchohol, TV & foreign magazines are banned; and, liberties curtailed.
    Taleban have also carried out public executions for adultery, amputations for thefts and flogging for public mischief.
    Other Muslim countries have condemned the Taleban for having a FAULTY interpretation of what Islam is about. Meanwhile - Scholars and Intellectuals have warned that fanatic brand of Islamic Fundamentalism will bring the Islamic World in direct conflict with the West.

    WHAT IS SHARIA'H ?
    ================
    Islamic Law, or Shari'a, is held by Muslims to be a complete legal system that governs every aspect of individual and social life and is derived directly from the Quran and the Traditions and Sayings of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)in the seventh century of the Christian Era.

    CAN DEMOCRACY CO-EXIST WITH SHARIA'H ?
    =====================================
    Islamic fundamentalists demand the implementation of full Shari'a as a prerequisite for an Islamic state -- this may be easier said than done, as Afghanistan, under the Taleban's Shariah law, has demonstrated that Democratic institutions are next to impossible; minorities and women have been oppressed & brutalized -- their human rights compromised.
