MOSCOW, RUSSIA, May 25, 2001: In a statement issued by the Russian foreign ministry, Russia strongly condemns the Taliban militia's decree to impose a dress code on Afghanistan's Hindu and Sikh minorities. The decree is forcing non-Muslim minorities, particularly Hindus and Sikhs, to wear identity labels and prohibits them from living in the same house occupied by Muslims. Calling the Taliban acts a violation of fundamental human rights, Russia has demanded that the Taliban regime show unconditional respect for the rights of followers of all religions. The Russian press and national television channels have strongly criticized the edict comparing it to Adolf Hitler's inhuman treatment of Jews forcing them to wear yellow Star Of David's during World war II.
