A raid by Afghani Taliban on Ghazni region in central of the country last November, forced Afghani boy Murtaza Ahmadi - who became an internet sensation wearing a number ten shirt made out of a plastic bag of his hero Argentinian Lionel Messi - and his family to flee to another region after receiving many threats from Taliban, because of the western media coverage about the young boy.
