Torrid Reflections of the Middle East's Emergent Evolution into the Twenty-first Century

The Afghan Supreme Court is upholding a 20 year prison sentence given to student and journalist Parwez Kambakhsh for blasphemy after he simply downloaded from the internet and

circulated an article about women's rights under Islam. We now must rally together to pressure Afghan President Hamid Karzai to pardon this innocent man.

Kambakhsh was originally sentenced to death for his "crime." His sentence was later reduced to jail time for distributing the internet article. Freedom-of-the-press advocates and human rights groups who have championed Kambakhsh's case are horrified by the decision.

Join us in seeking from President Hamid Karzai a presidential pardon of Kambakhsh and urging the U.S.A and the U.N. to intervene for human rights. We must do everything we can to save him.

Kambakhsh has been denied legal representation and the opportunity to present evidence in his defense. Act now to help free this innocent man for helping to raise awareness about the plight of women.

For Equality,
