Reading About Women's Rights Punishable By Death

From the UK news website the Independent comes an article about Sayed Pervez Kambaksh, a journalism student in Afghanistan. Kambaksh was sentenced to death, without any evidence of a fair trial, for downloading and distributing a Farsi report"which stated that Muslim fundamentalists who claimed the Koran justified the oppression of women had misrepresented the views of the prophet Mohamed."

The full article can be found here.

Sign the Independent's petition urging the UK's Foreign Office to apply pressure on Afghanistan to prevent Sayed Pervez Kambaksh's execution
