"Attack your own country, if you live in the West," says Talibani Jihadist English magazine Azaan. "It is your religious duty. Martyrdom operations (Jihadi pseudonym for suicide bombing) will surely take you to Heaven where 72 houris are waiting to embrace you."
This is the fourth issue of Azaan. It started publication in March 2013. The magazine claims to be published by a media group based in Khurasan, reflecting the Taliban dream of capturing Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, eastern parts of Iran, parts of Pakistan like Pakhtunkhwa and Baluchistan, apart from Afghanistan. Khurasan is a historical name for this larger region.
Like the previous issues, the whole magazine is replete with ideas presented in the name of Islam that are actually nothing more than virulently anti-Islamic propaganda. Like other Jihadi magazine, this too constitutes the biggest defamation of Islam perpetrated by the state of Pakistan which allows its publication. Though NewAgeIslam.com has been banned in Pakistan for refuting the ideas propagated in these magazines, they continue to flourish. No wonder the editor of this web-magazine Mr. Sultan Shahin had asked the UN Human Rights Council in its last session in September 2013 to not entertain any defamation of Islam resolution until Islam is protected from defamation by Jihadi literature in the Islamic world first.
