The Penal Code amendments included Taleban-era punishments for certain behaviors like adultery between married people to be punished by stoning and amputations for theft or robbery.

Thanks to the alertness of Non-Profit Organizations and Civil Society groups in Afghanistan, the proposal was made public and caused outrage world-wide. The Ministry of Justice at first responded to the outcry with denial, calling it a "non-official proposal" and blaming others, including human rights organizations like AI for propaganda against their government. In spite of Pres. Karzai public promise these cruel amendments won't be included we must stay alert! We are also alarmed at other efforts in the Afghan Government to roll back women's rights, especially if a reconciliation with the Taleban happens upon the withdrawal of US troops from the country next year. Please help us send letters to Pres. Karzai ASAP!

Thanks Beverly... Signed.... Now we need a petition to charge Obama, Bush, Cheney with crimes against humanity (torture) at Guantanamo Bay? It's not just the Taliban that is a major problem.
