Anti-War Action News

The Fight Against Fake News Continues
Like much news that's damaging to the Bush administration, the report came out on a Friday. Since then, it's gotten little media attention -- just 41 mentions in U.S. newspapers and wire stories, according to a news database search on October 11.

Women rights magazine editor detained
Pajhwok 10/02/2005 By Ahmad Khalid Mowahid
KABUL - Police have detained the chief editor of Haqooq-i-Zan (women rights) magazine, a worker of the publication claimed on Sunday. Ali Mohaqiq, the chief editor who went missing a day earlier, was in police custody, Mohammad informed Pajhwok Afghan News. "After hectic efforts, I found Mohaqiq at the Kabul police headquarters detention centre." The worker said police were yet to say why Mohaqiq had been held. But Zmarai Amiri, a Kabul court head, said the editor had been incarcerated for publishing anti-Islam articles. He stopped short of disclosing the contents of the articles. He argued the publication of such pieces as ridiculed the religion was prohibited under the relevant Afghan press law. The court chief said they were discussing the issue with a commission tasked with monitoring the media. Mohaqiq refused to name editorial board members responsible for publishing the 'anti-Islam' pieces, he said. Mohammad pointed out a cleric in Dasht-e-Barchi on the outskirts of Kabul, had complained to police about the magazine some three months back. The Imam, who claimed the articles published by the magazine were against Islamic teachings, had also asked people to avoid reading it.
