Converting Muslims to Christianity, not an ordinary offence: Afghan FO
Dharb-i-Mu’min
KABUL: While refusing extension of visas to the western diplomats, the Taliban government has informed them that they would not be allowed to see their detained citizens unless investigations were over.
A spokesman for the Afghan foreign ministry has said that the heinous conspiracy of converting Muslims to Christianity is not an ordinary offence. The sentiments of millions of Muslims around the world have been offended.
Talking to Dharb-i-Mu'min, the acting Minister of Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, Mulla Nooruddin Turabi said that the world pressure would not deflect his government from its stance and all progress in this respect would be made according to Shari`ah.
Mulla Nooruddin Turabi added that the devastated Afghanistan certainly needed global aid but any aid at the cost of faith and ideology would not be accepted. “Those who raise hue and cry in relation to the prisoners forget that the Afghan nation can never tolerate an insult to their Religion and faith,” concluded Mulla Nooruddin.

Dharb-i-Mu'min
KABUL: Speaking to a ceremony here in Kabul, Minister for Aviation, Mulla Akhtar Muhammad Maqsood urged the United Nations for a quick end to unjust sanctions on the national flag carrier.
A seminar was held here at Continental Hotel, in which a large number of UN delegates, international NGO’s, trade representatives and journalists participated. The speakers focused on the United Nations sanctions, especially on the Afghan Ariana Airlines (AAA) and demanded that the sanctions should be lifted.
Afghan aviation minister in his speech held UN responsible for the damages to civil aviation, tourism, agriculture and other departments and said that the international assets were frozen on the orders of the sanction committee. He added that the United Nations has deprived us of our due imbursements from the airlines that use Afghan airspace and as a result we are unable to overhaul our aircraft.
Other speakers feared at the seminar that if the sanctions on the national flag carrier are not lifted timely, human services like supply of medicines, postal service, movement of refugees, sick and under-treatment patients and many other services would be hampered badly.

Dharb-i-Mu’min
KABUL:“Investigations against the workers of Shelter Now International are in progress and those found guilty would be punished in accordance with the law of the land,” expressed Mulla Nooruddin Turabi, the minister for Justice, Government of Islamic Emirate, while talking to Dharb-i-Mu’min. He said it was a sensitive matter because the said agency had insulted the holy faith of Islam and tried to spread Christianity.
“We do not need such aid under the guise of which our oppressed nation was to be misguided. The said agency by its actions has challenged the sense of our religious honour as a reaction to which the Afghan people are full of rage. However, if any action is to be taken, it will be according to the Shari`ah,” he reiterated.

Dharb-I-Mu'min
TALOQAN: Ahmed Shah Masood has been provided heavy military aid against his bowing before Russian conditions.
According to details, Masood had sought Russian aid in the recent past. In reply Russia told Masood that he had already been extended heavy aid however he could do nothing acceptable to Russia, while his power in Afghanistan was declining day by day.
Russia told Masood, if he wanted any further assistance, he should transfer all powers to communist general Dostum. The Russia would now deal with Dostum only and not with Masood, the rebel chief was informed.
After such a shameful condition by Russia, it is expected that relations between Russia and Northern Alliance would deteriorate. However, Masood and Rabbani have surprisingly accepted the Russian condition.s
It may be noted that all military aid, provided to rebel forces, including tanks, and light and heavy ammunition, is in the military camps under communists control in I Khanum area of Dasht Shirazi.

Media Report
NEWS DESK: UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan has said that the Taliban are violating international laws by not allowing foreign diplomats to see the detainees.
The Taliban have said that permission to meet the detainees will not be granted, nor will the visas of Western diplomats be extended.
Three diplomats from America, Australia and Germany came to Afghanistan to try to have access to the workers of an NGO detained for propagating Christianity under cover of welfare services.
Annan said that by not allowing the three diplomats from Germany, Australia and America an access to the detainees, the Taliban are violating international laws. “This gives a signal that could have severe consequences on critical humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan.”
Abdur Rahman, a Taliban official, said that the diplomats would not be allowed to see the detainees. “Talks with embassies are over, and the diplomats do not need to stay in Afghanistan any longer. Investigation with the detainees is on. The diplomats should sit in Islamabad and wait for Taliban’s decision.
“We have not changed our mind. We will never give an extension,” a foreign ministry spokesman said. “This is our final decision.”

Rebels making false claims of making gains: report
By Maulvi Sibghatullah
KANDAHAR: Claim by rebels to having captured areas in Ghor and Badghais provinces is groundless. The rebel commanders make false claims on BBC to try to spread panic and anxiety among people. This was reported in a report published in a Kandahar-based newspaper.
Rebel commander Ismail Khan claimed in an interview to BBC that his warriors had captured many districts of Badghais Province. Contrarily, the fact remains that a few Iranian-backed subversives are hidden in some mountains. The mujahideen had carried out an operation against them and captured one post. The rebels had fled, leaving behind five dead bodies of their colleagues and a large quantity of modern weapons, the report said.
