Talaban On Occasion Of 33rd Anniversary
Of 1979 Herat Uprising
06 March 2012
By Al-Ikhwah Al-Mujahidun
In the Name of Allah, the Most
Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
It is thirty three years ago today since the former
Soviet-led ruthless communists, crushing the popular
Jihadic uprising, martyred 25000 Muslims of Heart
province, Afghanistan in cold blood, in what was one
of the most heinous crimes in the history.
The Herat insurrection took place, in the context of
large scale unrest, against the communist system
implemented by puppet regime (The Khalq (Masses)
faction) on Mar. 15, 1979 coinciding with Hoot 24,
1357 solar year.
Tens of thousands of Herati Muslims, under the Sharia
Fitwa (religious decree) issued by Muslim scholars,
rose up in revolt in large measure to struggle to
retain independence in the face of growing Red Empire.
The martyrdom-loving Herati Muslims' uprising set off
Jihadic resistance across the country and successfully
gave way to the spirit of Jihad and sacrifice among
the Islam-loving Afghans to launch Jihad against the
Soviet-backed communist regime and the Red Army.
Despite the exercise of its fullest power to suppress
the rebellion, resulting in callous massacre of more
than 25000 empty-handed and unarmed Herati Afghan
Muslims, the then puppet regime failed to stop the
waves of revolution from engulfing the entire country,
weakening the resolve of Afghans and subjugating them.
The Afghan nation, in spite of all this, kept putting
up firmer Jihaidic resistance, regardless of laying
down their and the lives of their loved ones, so much
so that they spread it countrywide.
This day is observed while our country is in the
tyrannical occupation of America and the Afghan
Muslims is in frontline trenches conducting Jihad
against the US invasion all over the country.
Today, our Muslim nation is witnessing several
revolutions and uprisings as it used to do during the
oppressive rule of former Red Army.
The current US occupation and the former Soviet's are
similar in nature and objectives with the mere
difference of fact that the former fooled Afghans
under the slogans of ‘shelter, food and clothing',
whereas latter is shedding the blood of the oppressed
Afghans under the false slogans of ‘peace, democracy
The then Khalqi regime used to shower the oppressed
Afghans with bullets and bombs, while the blood
thirsty US terrorists are making the Afghans bath in
their own blood all around the country.
The US, in the same way as the former Soviet Union,
may end in tears and will be destined with the same
embarrassing fate the Red Army befell and will be
forced to flee our beloved country in much disgrace
with help and grace of Allah Almighty.
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, as away a asking
Allah (Subhanahu wa-ta'ala) to accept the martyrs of
the Herat historic uprising, hereby, deem itself duty
bound and vows to continue to launch Jihad till it
drive the last invader out the of its soil, insha
