The plight of Raif Badawi has touched thousands of hearts around the world.
A man who has strove for Human Rights and Women’s Rights,
through his writings as a blogger.
He now has a book published in many different languages.
Professing only peace and harmony Raif is now languishing in a prison.
In fear for his life simply because he expressed his right to peacefully verbalize
his opinions and beliefs.
Raif is a brave and articulate man, that has now been reduced to not knowing
whether he will be publicly beaten
or whether he will live or die, on a weekly basis.
What was his crime ? One might ask.
This is why Raif Badawi is an exemplorary candidate
for the prestigious Sakharov Prize.
