It is high time for the Global community to take up the task of persuading rulers to respect freedom of conscience of individuals wherever fanatical masses and decadent judicial systems compel even the magnanimous and sophisticated heads of states to bow before medieval obscurantism. The following is the link to petition the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights requesting them to intervene in the case of Raif Badawi. Our last post carries detailed background information regarding what went on in the case of Raif Badawi’s and his other liberal Saudi friends’ efforts to bring reforms and democratic rights in the Saudi Kingdom. You are requested to sign the petition. Please spread the word so that all persons interested in freedom of expression and conscience may know about this campaign. Do it with all your might because you will be saving many many precious lives thereby.
