HT - The Iconoclast | New English Review
It gripes my soul to realize what we're really fighting for in Afghanistan ...An Afghan journalism student sentenced to death for allegedly ’insulting Islam’ had his conviction upheld but his sentence reduced to 20 years in prison by an Afghan central appeal court today.Ggggggaaaaaawwwwwdddddd!!!!!!!!!!
The prosecution alleged that Sayed Perwez Kambashkh, 24, downloaded from the internet and distributed an article by an Iranian writer questioning some of the tenets of Islam relating women’s rights. He has always denied the charges.
