“All Americans ever see of Afghanistan is the brown mountains in the war footage and things getting blown up, but when you spend time at Tolo TV, you get a feeling of what this place could be.”
These are the words of MTV co-founder Tom Freston who has recently signed on as a board member and adviser with Moby Group which is considered as the largest Media Group in Afghanistan. In reality, it is a front for the US state department and various US based media organizations such as NewsCorp (owned by Rupert Murdoch), MTV networks and others for changing the Afghan psyche.
Since the beginning of the occupation of Afghanistan, the immoral occupying forces of ISAF have been relentlessly trying to undermine the strength of the Mujahid people of Afghanistan and dissipate their self awareness through countless diversions by stoking the desires of sexual organs which is a classical tactic of the forces of evil in the battle of heart and minds.
The enemies of Muslims have not even spared their own people from the filth of pornography, adultery, fornication, homosexuality and other form of perversions. This is the reality of freedom in the west and the oppression which their young men and women go through. Notwithstanding that the American dream has become x-rated; they make a lot of noise about their supposed values and moral high ground. It takes only a child to point out to the emperor that he is walking naked, while his friends make him think that he is wearing the most beautiful garments.
Therefore, it should not be surprising to know that the beacon of immorality, MTV is vigorously taking part in psychological operations of the Crusaders against the Muslims in Afghanistan.
It is operating in Afghanistan behind the mask of Tolo TV which is owned by Moby Group which was founded by Afghan entrepreneur Saad Mohseni and his family. The Mohsenis’ father, Yassin, was a diplomat under the Daoud regime of the 1970s. When the Soviets invaded Afghanistan in 1979, Yassin Mohseni resigned as second-in-charge at Afghanistan’s Tokyo embassy, and in 1982 the family, including the boys’ sister, Wajma, now 30, and mother Safia, migrated to Australia. When the Taliban fell in late 2001, Saad was a stockbroker, Zaid a lawyer and Jahid a financial analyst. Saad Mohseni holds British citizenship also.
Tolo TV was first launched in Kabul but as of November 2007, has broadcasts in 14 cities in Afghanistan on free-to-air and throughout the region by satellite.
This was right after the military invasion of Afghanistan by the US and her allies. The military invasion was followed by a cultural invasion, the standard bearers being the NGOs and the so called aid agencies. Tolo TV’s initial startup costs were supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Like Kabul’s private FM station Radio Arman — this also was created by Mohseni’s family with help from USAID. A portion of Moby’s advertising budget comes from foreign governments and N.G.O.s; recruitment ads for the Afghan Army and police are designed by Lapis, Moby’s ad agency, and paid for by the U.S. through the Afghan government. And the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) IS among Tolo’s top fifteen advertisers.
Without the U.S. government’s financing for infrastructure, Moby would not exist. The US State Department has budgeted seventy-two million dollars this fiscal year for “communications and public diplomacy” in Afghanistan – in other words, to use “soft power” for psychological occupation of the Muslim masses of Afghanistan and to salvage whatever they can in the face of humiliating defeat at the hands of the Mujahideen.
U.S.A.I.D. sponsors “On the Road,” a weekly reality show. The show, which airs Saturday nights on Tolo, is hosted by twenty-two-year-old named Mujeeb Arez, who travels through Afghanistan by jeep—often on highways freshly paved by U.S.A.I.D. funds—talking with residents and exploring local customs, delicacies, and indigenous commerce. In areas where it is too dangerous to travel by jeep, U.S.A.I.D. has supplied a helicopter to ferry the crew. The aim of the show: to project a positive image of the Occupation Forces.
Another such program beamed by Tolo TV is “Hop.” It is a nightly one-hour music video program. The format is similar to that of MTV – with an Afghan twist. It broadcasts songs of Idols of debauchery like Madonna and Jennifer Lopez. Music videos by Iranian, Turkish and Indian singers are also aired. The program is presented by two young males and a female. Their aim –
“By playing these songs, we would like to motivate our singers and actors to become famous like Western artists such as Ricky Martin and Jennifer Lopez,”
In other words, the aim is to change the role models for the Muslim youth of Afghanistan. Instead of righteous ones, the lowliest are being promoted (both are kuffar, Ricky Martin is a homosexual and Jennifer Lopez is not less than a prostitute).
Then they have two more programs which are directly funded by the US state department “Eagle Four” and “Birth of an Army”. The former is a police drama pitting the cops against the Mujahideen and the latter is a “reality show” of the puppet army vs the Mujahideen. The aim here is to galvanize the Afghans behind the corrupt puppet forces, create pleasant stereotypes of the otherwise hated puppets and hated stereotypes of the otherwise loved Mujahideen.
When the Rand Muslim Mohseni was confronted by complaints from Muslims in Kabul regarding the promotion of un-Islamic values, this is what he has to say:
“If the Afghans are ready or not, that is really up to the public to decide,” he says. “It is not up to intellectuals and the academics and the so-called experts. If the public uses these programs with enthusiasm and they are popular, then obviously the public seems to be ready for these types of programs.”
But in spite of all the efforts and money put into these corrupt programs, the reach of Tolo Tv remains confined to few urban centers only; and even after a decade under the occupation, the Jihad against the occupiers remains resilient. The main reason being the love of Islam in the hearts of the Muslims of Afghanistan. This is evident in the words of Abdul Rahman Faizi, a Kabul resident who said :
“Anything that is according to our Islamic Shariat is acceptable for us. But if it is not in Shari’a, people will have a hard time accepting it.”
And following are the conclusions from the above analysis:
- Moby Group is a front organization for carrying out PSYOPS on the Muslims of Afghanistan.
- NGOs and so called aid organizations are tools of war as is evident from the operations of USAID. The Muslims shouldn’t have even an iota of sympathy for them and should support and encourage the Mujahideen to strike at them.
- The occupation of Afghanistan stands for immorality. The immorality is being exported from the countries of occupying forces to Muslim lands to dissipate their self awareness.
- A decade of psychological operations largely remains unsuccessful in changing the opinion about the occupying forces.
- The occupation relies primarily on Rand Muslims for doing their dirty work amidst Muslims. Without the backing of the ISAF, organizations like Moby group have no footing in Afghanistan. Moby group is one such organization. Other such groups need to be probed and exposed.
Allah says in the Qur’an:
“Verily, those who love that indecency should spread among the believers deserve a painful chastisement in the world and in the Hereafter. Allah knows, but you do not know.” [Surah Nur:19]
“Verily, those who disbelieve spend their wealth to hinder (men) from the path of Allaah, and so will they continue to spend it; but in the end it will become an anguish for them. Then they will be overcome. And those who disbelieve will be gathered unto Hell.” [al-Anfaal 8:36]
