Freedom of speech is not upheld in its true sense in any part of the world. Rather this slogan is only used by the tyrannical governments and specifically the western world to further their agendas. These countries that encourage such slogans and call the oppressed nations to uphold freedom of media have themselves stepped on these same values. It is these same nations that have snatched freedom from the media, monopolizing and confining them under their own control.
If we take a hard look we’ll get to know that no media has freedom inside the infidel countries to which they themselves call or try to impose upon the Muslims because all international media outlets are under the control of powerful countries specially the Christians and Jews. It is due to this monopoly that all the crimes, atrocities, violations of human rights and war crimes of western countries, Israel, Russia and other powerful countries are kept hidden from the public. These media outlets are exclusively used as an effective weapon against the Muslims, Islam, Islamic countries, Islamic culture and Jihadi organizations all under the deceitful guise of freedom of speech.
No media outlet inside America has the right to publish independent investigative reports about every security incident but are merely allowed to broadcast reports when provided with information by the American officials themselves. To protect the international prestige of America and shield their crimes and oppressions from being exposed, no channel is allowed to publish material on daily security incidents inside America. It is this reason that the numerous security incidents taking place inside America which cultivate separation, fragility and hatred of the American people for their government are kept hidden by the claimants of freedom of speech without ever being challenged by media and only 1% of the news is covered. And this is how the state of affairs remain in all of the infidel countries.
But when the topic turns towards Muslims countries, then the matter of freedom of speech takes a U-turn. As the west has bought off individuals who are free from any conscious and Islamic convictions, they use this medium inside the Islamic countries under the slogan of freedom of speech to further their goals. Ignorant of any journalism ethics these sellout journalists have become intoxicated by the brew of dollars to the extent that they consider propaganda against Islam, Muslims, Islamic culture, Islamic traditions, Islamic countries, Jihad, Islamic rulings and Islamic law as freedom of speech. They work tirelessly in promoting western culture and protecting western interests inside Islamic countries, try to cover up the crimes of the west, Israel and other infidel countries perpetrated throughout the world, do not publicize the victimhood of the oppressed Muslims, exert efforts to cast doubts into the hearts of Muslims upon their own beliefs, defame Islam, try to portray Muslims seeking their rights as terrorists, create cleavage among the Muslims, give air-time to controversial issues inside Muslims communities and try their best to breed intra-Muslim strife and war. All in all, media is a powerful tool in the hands of the west with which they threaten Islamic countries and traumatize the Islamic world.
Afghanistan is also amongst these Islamic countries which the west has tried to destroy with every weapon and tool at its disposal. The west has tried over the past 14 years to keep the media bazaar in Afghanistan simmering. Hundreds of radio stations, TV channels, newspapers and websites were generated all working in unison in eliminating Islam and the Islamic identity of our beloved country, supporting the western invasion, corrupting the minds of the nation, breeding hypocrisy in their minds and promoting western culture. They especially worked hard to deviate the minds of Afghans from Jihad.
Hence one can clearly observe the negative impact of propaganda by these media outlets in Afghanistan and the entire Islamic world. It is due to the propaganda of these networks that the Muslims have become weakened in confronting their enemy and are sinking further towards degradation by the day. And this is the goal of the west and all of the infidel countries.
Since most of the Islamic countries are unable to confront the poisonous propaganda of the media due to the influence and power of the west therefore all of the Muslims look towards Jihadi groups, Jihadi movements and organizations to save the Islamic Ummah from this horrendous monster. The policy of Al-Shabab Jihadi group in Somalia concerning this is worth saluting. They state that the infidel armies wage war with airplanes, bombs and various other means and journalists fight alongside them with cameras, microphones and propaganda. They are both one and the same waging war on different fronts. That’s why they attack impartial bought-off journalists and their offices and designate them as targets.
Since the Muslims are unable to counter the powerful enemy propaganda with their own media due to their meager resources therefore they must look towards other means to combat such anti-Islam networks.
All media offices, workers and journalists that work for and are funded by the west must become firm military targets and be eliminated.
All media outlets that are based abroad but have journalists and branches inside the country must also become targets.
All media outlets not funded by the west but working against Islam, Muslims and Islamic culture must initially be warned followed by decisive countermeasures against them.
While taking decisive steps against impartial media, the Mujahideen must not fear labels of war crimes or impeachment of media freedom because it is the duty of the Mujahideen to protect Islamic beliefs just as protection of their land. Every attack on Islamic culture and Islamic beliefs must be answered in order to fulfill their religious obligation.
All heads of Islamic states whose nations are not under direct occupations should also not forget that the intellectual invasion of this same media that works as cancer against their governments and people must be countered the same way as any military invasion on their countries without worrying about pressure from the west and western organizations (United Nations).
If bold steps are not taken against these impartial western media outlets then we’ll not only lose our own nations and be defeated by the enemy in this front but we’ll also lose our Islamic beliefs, identity and interests and will also be held responsible in front of Allah Almighty on the day of judgment.
