IMPORTANT. PLEASE READ AND FOLLOW

On May 23rd 2001 the Taleban authorities in Afghanistan confirmed
that all Hindus will be required to wear a strip of yellow cloth
sewn onto a shirt pocket in order to identify themselves. They
claim that the measure is for their "protection". The world
has faced this before, in 1939 the world was required, at great cost,
to rid itself of Hitler's tyranny, it is not hard to spot his child.
Those who fail to learn from history are condemned to relive it.
The Taleban's record on respecting other religions gives great
cause for concern that their ultimate aim, upon which they are
intent, is "religious cleansing". They have already
demonstrated their distain and intolerance for other religions and
traditions by the desecration and destruction of the ancient
Buddhist statues, our collective heritage, within the Afghanistan.
Whatever your religion, or even if you have none, we hope that
you will agree that this fundamentally wrong. Remember,
"All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing".
Please do not do nothing, add your voice.

To The Secretary General, Security
Council and General Assembly of the United Nations.
We the undersigned are appalled by the decision of the Taleban
government of Afghanistan to require all Hindus to wear a piece
of yellow cloth sewn onto a shirt pocket in order to identify
themselves. An individual's communion with God, however
they find him, is a matter of personal conscience and must not be
the subject of intimidation or persecution. The right of
everyone to worship as they wish is fundamental and inalienable. The
United Nations was founded in order to defeat Hitler and his
henchmen who required the same from another religion with all
it's horrific consequences. It is completely unacceptable that
nearly 60 years later history is repeating itself. We ask the
following:
1. That the Taleban government is made aware in the strongest
possible terms that the world will not countenance this
perversion of human rights.
2. That prior to the United Nations and/or it's constituent members
granting recognition of the Taleban government this
obscene policy is reversed.
3. That the United Nations widen the terms of the
trade sanctions currently in force.
