Afghanistan's christian convert: the story behind the western media hype

From Der Spiegel

...''Less known is the foreign nationals file on Rahman that has been kept by German authorities since he applied for asylum here in February 2000 -- an application that was rejected two months later, on April 21, 2000.

The German Rahman file, together with statements made by his brother, who has lived near Stuttgart since 1993, and a patient file from a clinic in Pakistan, tell a different story: that of the odyssey of a severely emotionally disturbed man who has been wandering aimlessly through the world for years, a man without a goal or a foothold. The file casts significant doubt on widely propagated theories that Rahman is a man driven by his faith and willingness to become a martyr. Instead, the file depicts a man driven by his psychoses and paranoia.''
