Free Sayed Parwez Kambakhsh (My email to the Afghani US Embassy)
To whom it may concern:
I am writing to express my deepest disgust at the decision to put Sayed Parwez Kambakhsh to death for reading and distributing literature that opposes the Koran’s expressed views on the treatment of women. This is absolutely deplorable. Any belief system worth the paper on which it is written should be able to stand up to criticism. To kill someone for exploring and presenting other ideas is the height of cowardice and inhumanity. All of those responsible for this should be deeply ashamed. The world should stand in support of Mr. Kambakhsh’s freedom to read and present honest criticisms of any belief system, and in opposition of any government who would attempt to revoke this freedom or punish its application.
Good and humane societies respect its members and their autonomy.
