Description[edit]

The editor of this news group is Hussain Andaryas who himself is a Muslim convert to Christianity. This news group is operated from the United States and is located in the state of Tennessee.

The Afghan Times brought the attention of the International media towards the arrest of the Afghan Christian, Abdul Rahman[1][2] who was being prosecuted in Kabul for converting to Christianity and if convicted could face the death penalty.
