Ittefaq radio returns to air after six months

PUL-I-ALAM (Pajhwok): After a six-month suspension, a local radio station called Ittefaq has returned to air in central Logar province, changing its name as ‘Bab-ul-Jihad Radio.’

The Ittefaq radio was operating under the umbrella of the Ministry of Defense during the previous government at the 4th Brigade Command of the 203rd Thunder Military Corps.

A spokesman for Logar governor, Omar Mansoor, told Pajhwok Afghan News that Ittefaq Radio, which previously aired on 94.9 FM, had been reactivated after a six-month delay. He added that the radio would now broadcast under the name of Bab Al-Jihad Radio.

“The radio called Bab-ul-Jihad now has limited broadcasts, but in future it will provide useful Islamic programs, anthems and naats to people,” he said.

In Logar, the Bab Al-Jihad radio station is re-broadcasting at a time when many media outlets in the province are facing the threat of closure due to financial difficulties.
