Al-Qaeda continues to preach jihad or holy war through an Urdu monthly magazine that is delivered to homes in cities across Pakistan by post, according to a media report.
The 200-page magazine, Hiteen, is named after the battlefield where Sultan Salahuddin Ayubi defeated the Crusaders and features articles that preach jihad and praise Osama bin Laden. The magazine was started in June last year, a month after bin Laden was killed in a US military raid in Abbottabad.
Hiteen is being delivered to Deobandis, Ahl-e-Hadith and Barelvis sects to convert them to Al Qaeda's point of view.
The magazine has the 'sayings' of Afghan Taliban commander Mullah Omar and al-Qaeda leaders.
There is a 'fatwa' by Muhammad Waliullah Hussain of Jamiatul Uloomul Islami which declares that there is no bar on Muslims looting goods from Nato containers.
An editorial said, will continue till the US is removed from Muslim countries and an Islamic Caliphate is established. Hiteen does not carry the name of the editor and only way to send feedback is through email.
