Funds appear to be getting tight for the Taliban, whose Financial Commission has issued a plea for funds on the organisation's website - backed by the threat of Hellfire.
The statement makes the point that anyone who does not give them funds will die a hypocrite and go to Hell: "Thus, save yourself from a greater hardship in the Hereafter and protect yourself against hellfire."
The article suggests "saving up" for the Hereafter by making payments to the Islamic Emirate's Financial Commission. It offers a couple of phone numbers and a couple of email addresses - almost like having a direct line to God. Do these people really believe that you can buy salvation? I thought that is what they preached against.
PS I do not advise you to take advantage of this financial opportunity. You may be disappointed.
