Afghan Cleric’s ‘Fatwa’ Against Media Makes Life Even More Dangerous For Journalists

Afghanistan was already considered one of the most dangerous countries in the world for journalists, a consequence of decades of war and religious extremism.

But for some Afghan journalists, the risks have been amplified after a cleric in the western city of Herat recently declared jihad, or holy war, against the country’s besieged media.

It’s time to leave Afghanistan to the Afhganis. If a terrorist attack on the west emanates from the country blast all their infrastructure to smithereens, rinse and repeat throughout all Islamic states.
