Announcing the launch on September 14, 2001 of an ONLINE Petition "U.N.
Petition re: Human Rights in Afghanistan"

decision to require all Hindus to wear yellow cloth to identify themselves

Click here to sign the petition:

The Online petition is sponsored by the DisAbled Women's Network (DAWN)

This is not an urban legend... see the ABC News site at:

"The Taliban, one of the world's most isolated and controversial regimes, is
considering a proposal to make Hindus wear identity labels to separate them
>from the majority Muslim population in Afghanistan."
