Nasim Fekrat

A very interesting blogger in Afghanistan has chosen to start using his real name. Blogging in English as Afghan Lord, Nasim Fekrat has covered the chaos and struggle in Afghanistan for years. He says his pseudonym has been hijacked by Taliban supporters, opponents of Ahmad Shah Masoud and elsewhere. He figures his real identity is more proof against this than his pseudonym. I hope he’s right. And we wish him good fortune. It’s brave at least.
