Kabul Oct.2002

Children playing on top of a derelict tank in Old Kabul. The destroyed building in background was once a shared temple (known as Dharamsal) of hundreds of Sikhs and Hindus in the area. In these neighborhoods many Sikh and Hindu families of Afghanistan lived side by side with their Muslim neighbors for years. But immediately upon the entrance of the traitorous jehadi fighters into Kabul in 1992, crimes were wrought upon these fellow citizens of our country; large numbers of haves and have-nots were killed or forced to emigrate to Pakistan and from there to India. According to reports from RAWA members in Kabul, during the dark years of the civil war the leaders of the Northern Alliance forcefully circumcised many Hindu men and raped many Hindu women.
