Was There A Death Fatwa Against Charb?

January 9, 2015

Stéphane Charbonnier

It seems to me highly relevant, in light of recent events, that a prominent Afghani cleric by the name Faroq Husaini had issued a death sentence against Stéphane Charbonnier, the cartoonist and Charlie Hebdo editor known as ‘Charb’ and offered a reward of $100,000 in October 2012.

According to the AFP report at the time, he made the pronouncement in a mosque in Afghanistan’s third largest city, Herat. “I will sell all my properties, including my lands in Herat, to collect the money,” Husaini said.

Maybe there is a reason mainstream media do not seem to have picked this up at all. Maybe I have misread the original material. Please leave a comment if you have more information on this.
