Another fundamentalist death sentence in Afghanistan

Nonbelievers have to put up with a good deal of nonsense in places where fundamentalist Christians have a lot of influence. But then, there are fundamentalist Muslim environments, where never mind outright nonbelief, you can get your life ruined just for exploring more liberal interpretations of Islam.

Afghanistan, which Western powers “liberated,” is at it again. According to the UK newspaper The Independent, Sayed Pervez Kambaksh, a journalism student, “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.” This gets him a death sentence, naturally. Read the story and weep.
