Afghan clerics seek return to strict Islamic law

"This (gathering) was very new for the peace efforts and the biggest yet. They will go and preach for peace in their respective regions,"

In other words , they will go forward and tell the Taliban that they Comply with their Beliefs !

Afghanistan is truly in a Downward Spiral , We need to annihilate the Taliban and just move on , let them rebuild their shithole themselves !

(Reuters) - Afghanistan's largest gathering of clerics, who met to discuss reconciliation with the Taliban, has called for the revival of strict Islamic law as the country seeks ways to win militants away from a growing insurgency.

About 350 of the Islamic clerics, or ulema, met for three days this week, the meeting ending with a declaration calling on President Hamid Karzai to enact sharia, or Islamic law, including punishments such as stonings, lashing, amputation and execution.

"The lack of implementation of sharia hodud (punishment) has cast a negative impact on the peace process," said a 10-point resolution issued after the meeting.

"We the ulema and preachers of Afghanistan ... earnestly ask the government not to spare any efforts in the implementation of sharia hodud."
