14 September, 2012
KANDAHAR: Taliban have strongly condemned the US film insulting the holy prophet of Islam and termed it an unholy act.
"Following the permission of the government, a US cinema recently released a film insulting the holy prophet of Islam, Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him). The Islamic Emirate condemns this unholy act in strong words," said a Taliban statement available with Afghan Islamic Press (AIP).
It said the film was produced and released after the government support.
"Being a strong defenders of Islam, we warn the US regime and the figures who committed the blasphemy that such acts cannot help them achieve their nefarious designs rather it will further unveil the satanic face of the government to the world, especially to the Muslims and force the Muslim world to collectively show reaction against that country [United State]."
Taliban urged their supporters to take revenge for the insult of the holy prophet from the Americans in Afghanistan.
"The Islamic Emirate urge all its mujahideen to stand firm against all insult committed by US to our prophet and beliefs. The Mujahideen should take revenge from the US occupational troops in the battlefield in Afghanistan," the statement concluded.
The blasphemous US film triggered angry protest demonstrations in Libya and Egypt. Protesters killed four US diplomats including US ambassador to Libya in Binghazi.
