SPIN BOLDAK, Afghanistan (Reuters) – Afghanistan’s Taliban guerrillas have issued an Islamic decree calling for President Hamid Karzai to be killed for serving American and British “infidels”.
The decree, or fatwa, came in a 12-page, Pashto-language booklet distributed in the Afghan south. It reiterated a call for jihad, or religious war, against infidels and their slaves.
“It should be remembered that there is no difference between infidels and their agents and jihad against them has become incumbent,” the fatwa said.
The document, a copy of which was obtained by Reuters at the weekend, was written by three Taliban Muslim scholars and approved buy a council of about 100, a Taliban spokesman said.
“Jihad against all the slaves of Americans and the British including Hamid Karzai has become incumbent and they deserve to be killed,” it said.
