About Lemar-Aftaab Magazine published from Afghanistan
Lemar-Aftaab is an Afghan independent weekly magazine that focuses on the culture and politics of Afghanistan. Compared to other publications in the country, Aftaab has a secular bent and has drawn criticism from conservative Islamic scholars.
In June of 2003, the magazine was banned by the Afghani government because several articles on Islam were deemed to be sacrilegious. The editor of the magazine, Mir Hussein Mehdavi, was arrested by the authorities and charged with blasphemy. He was later ordered to be released but may still stand trial.
