Sentenced to death

Assolutamente incredibile ma vero!

L'Independent pubblica una notizia sconvolgente. Lo studente afgano Sayed Pervez Kambaksh è stato condannato a morte per il solo motivo di aver scaricato dal web un documento sul trattamento delle donne nei paesi islamici.

A young man, a student of journalism, is sentenced to death by an Islamic
court for downloading a report from the internet. The sentence is then
upheld by the country's rulers. This is Afghanistan – not in Taliban times
but six years after "liberation" and under the democratic rule of
the West's ally Hamid Karzai.

The fate of Sayed Pervez Kambaksh has led to domestic and international protests, and deepening concern about erosion of civil liberties in Afghanistan. He was accused of blasphemy after he downloaded a report from a Farsi website which stated that Muslim fundamentalists who claimed the Koran justified the oppression of women had misrepresented the views of the prophet Mohamed.
