BC: The End. Made by Emily Seaton
FC: Human Rights in Afghanistan By: Emily Seaton
1: Post Taliaban: The Bonn Agreement of 2001 established the Afghan Independent Human Rights Commission as a national human rights institution to protect and promote human rights and to investigate abusiveness and war crimes.
2: Law and order in Afghanistan: accused of running its own prisons, torturing suspects, and harassing journalists. Freedom of Speech:Government had limited freedom of the media that invoke Islamic law and has encouraged self-censorship. The media is still government owned. Religious freedom: No registration of religious groups are required; minority religious groups are able to practice freely but not to proselytize. Islam is the official religion. All law must be compatible with Islamic mortality, and the President and Vice President must be Muslim.
4: Women had equal rights as men did. But when the Taliban came to rule, they had all of their rights taken away. The women had to stay inside and the rules were so strict they could get punished for having nail pollish on.
5: Sexual Orientation: Homosexuality and cross-dressing were capital crimes under the Taliban, but have been reduced to crimes, punished by long prison sentences.
