Raif Badawi, a secular activist from Saudi Arabia was arrested in 2012 after being charged with blaspheming against Islam. He supported liberalism, human rights and women’s rights. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison plus 1000 lashes. After being charged with apostasy, he said that he is still a Muslim. The government, couldn’t perform 1000 lashes due to his health issues and international anger while his family fled Saudi for Canada.
We are all celebrating his freedom. But this is a joke because he is under full control. Same thing happened to Soheil Arabi when he got arrested and sentenced to death for blasphemy in Iran. Soheil is free under full control while spending 8 years in prison after being tortured silently. We ask the international human rights organizations to fight for his full freedom and all other exmuslim/human rights activists all around the Islamic world.
We haven’t forgotten Mubarak Bala who is still in jail in Nigeria and we don’t even know if he is still alive or not. Aneeqa Ateeq is still in prison in Pakistan and a poor Hindu teacher has been sentenced to life imprisonment for blasphemy again in Pakistan. Now that Raif is freed we shouldn’t forget his case and story and it should a bigger reason for us to fight for secularism and freedom.
