Abdul Rahman, Taliban needs you to come back to Afghanistan. Taliban needs you to bring gift from Vatican. Taliban possibly wants if you can bring some new verses for new interpreting how innocent people should be killed and how to target the infidels (?).
It is almost seven month since Abdul Rahman’s the most controversial case over the world. Yesterday, when I heard the kidnapping of Torsello Italian photographer I shocked, I didn’t believe that I am reading the news correctly.
Anyway, it is time for Vatican and Italian government how they are going to deal with this phenomenon. Gabriele Torsello was kidnapped by group of five gunman while he was moving by a bus towards the south from Helmand province. Helmand province was often occupied by Taliban and released by coalition forces and Afghan national army. The kidnapper request, they will free the Italian reporter only in exchange for Abdul Rahman, an Afghan citizen who converted himself to Christianity.
The kidnappers had send their message to an Italian health center and asked the exchange should be done until the end of Ramadan, only one day left from the ultimatum. This not clear the abductors are belong to Taliban or other Islamic extremist.
Gabriele Torsello converted himself to Islam; he may tought being as a muslim inside muslim extremist he wouldn’t face problems. So, what will happen really? Does Vatican exchange his new Christian with a new muslim believer or Vatican excuse of exchanging?
As a friend of mine has said, the abductors really made a motivation to exit and entering to Islam is prohibited. This can be a serious threat to those who want to divert from Islam.
