Jakarta, Mar.16 (ANI): The Australian embassy attacker, Rois Abu Syaukat a.k.a Iman Darmawan has scripted a book that preaches jihad.
Syaukat, in his 224 page book named What is Jihad? has claimed that the attack was warranted because it targeted non-believers. The Sun reports.
He provided the logistics for the September 2004 bombing, in which nine Indonesians were killed.
Syaukat is currently serving a death sentence.
This is not the first instance when any militant has published book justifying their deeds.
Earlier, the three Bali bombers Amrozi, Mukhlas and Imam Samudra also came out with similar publication known as the martyr trilogy.
Despite the Indonesian governments steps to ban the sale of such books in the country these books remain a popular item at radical Islamic bookstores. (ANI)
