Prince Harry’s confessions about his military work have landed him in serious trouble. In his controversial autobiography “Spare”, the youngest son of King Charles III told details of his missions as a soldier in Afghanistan.
The Duke of Sussex revealed that he killed 25 people during the fight against the Taliban regime, deaths for which he has made it very clear that he has no regrets.
However, Princess Diana’s son has complained that the press had taken his statements out of context to give the impression that he was boasting about his skill in war by describing his enemies as “chess pieces that needed to be taken off the board.”
Al Qaeda threat to Prince Harry
It became known that the extremist organization, which was led by Osama Bin Laden, gave the order to its members and sympathizers to kill Prince Harry as soon as possible. The order has appeared in a harsh article published in the new edition of the magazine One Unmah.
Al Qaeda accuses the prince of despising Afghan Muslims and dehumanizing them, according to its interpretation of the words and tone he uses in his book.
“The prince’s confession that he killed twenty-five Muslims in cold blood, and that they were just chess pieces in his eyes, reveals to us the level of discrimination, condescension and criminality he has in his genes,” it writes about him.
The organization also called on the British royal family to leave the prince “alone” for them to “exact revenge”.
It speaks of an “opportunity for the crown to take revenge on its dissident son by removing his protection to make way for Islamic hands, so that they can be the ones to take their just retribution.”
The group has also criticized society, more concerned about the prince’s “sex scandals” than his hypothetical crimes against humanity.
However, Prince Harry has said he has never bragged about his work in the Taliban-dominated country.
“Surely the most dangerous lie they have told about me is that I have somehow bragged about the number of people I killed in Afghanistan. I would be angry too if I heard that someone had bragged about something like that. But it’s a lie,” he said recently in an interview with Stephen Colbert.
