Free Raif Badawi

Section:

Saudi Arabia should free Raif Badawi; we urge readers to support a message calling for his release

With rights come responsibilities and with freedom of speech and freedom of expression comes a responsibility to avoid making hateful and false comments. The blogger Raif Badawi is a man who understood that but shockingly in Saudi Arabia, simply for blogging about human rights he was sentenced to 10 years in jail and 1,000 lashes in 2014.

 

The only “crime” committed by Badawi, in reality, was to enable social debate online. In any other domain, this would be regarded as something to be lauded and though Saudi Arabia has rejected international condemnation of criticism of its treatment of this 32-year old as “interference in its internal affairs”, we join those speaking out against this unnecessarily harsh sentence.

Today, at 12 noon EST, a one-time message will be released on social media calling on Saudi Arabia to “do the right thing” and “release the imprisoned blogger Raif Badawi to his family in Canada”.

 

We urge all our readers to support this campaign by clicking here.

    • He simply campaigned for something that any civil society ought to tolerate. He does not deserve to be beaten to death for that.

    • What a senseless and idiotic remark.
      I suppose you believe we should have stood by and allowed Hitler to eradicate the Jews?
      That, again, would have been an example of when in Rome…..
      You doubtless sell top hats to the Saudi’s when the barbarians turn up to Ascot.
      There can be no other explanation for your inane comment.

      • I have to agree with you Peter about this being barbaric. It is a disgrace that this innocent man is being tortured and we must all speak out.

        Martin is plainly not in full view of the facts and ought to read up on this case.

        Raif Badawi should be freed and the world must keep highlighting this until he is.

        • Martin should not have written the comment without checking.
          He is assuming that Badawi is some sort of terrorist when in fact his campaign is about freeing the Saudi’s from it’s vile and oppressive religion.
          We should have never have put the Al Saud family in power. Bunch of peasants
