The New York Times reports on Sayed Mussa, who is being held in Afghanistan about his conversion from Islam to Christianity:
“The Taliban were saying, ‘He is an infidel, he is filthy and he needs to be killed,’ ” he recalled.
Mr. Mussa has not seen his wife and six children in months, since they fled to Pakistan for their safety. He is not even sure if he has a lawyer; he signed agreements with two, then never saw them again.
There are reports that he is facing execution within three days unless he renounces his faith.
I followed Denny Burk’s advice and tweeted this earlier today:
Mr. Harper, please persuade the Afghan govt. not to execute our brother Said Musa. http://t.co/DR0IQHP @pmharper
If you live in Canada, you can do the same. If you’re American, Burk has a couple of options that you can use.
Please consider doing the same, and keep Sayed Mussa in your prayers.
