Will you help to save a man’s life?
Last December Mehwish Aleem wrote to me asking for help to release her human rights activist father that has been imprisoned in Pakistan. The reason Mehwish’s father is in jail is because he fought for the rights of the minorities. To stop him, Muslims accused him of blasphemy. He is innocent, but Muslim hooligans threatened the judge that should he be released he (the judge) would be killed.
This is how Muslims win. They gang together and bully others to do what they want. Sadly, this “others” i.e. those of us who are not Muslims, are not united and do not act in unison.
Mahwish wrote a petition for the release of her father (Hector Aleem). This petition is over two months old. I can’t understand why there are not millions of signatures there? If we have a lot of signatures we can present it to the government of Pakistan and show them that the world is watching.
You don’t have to be a Christian to defend an innocent man. Human rights transcend beliefs. An innocent good man is jailed and his life is in peril. His family is also in danger. It is our duty as humans to feel the pains of others and act.
Please sign this petition and ask everyone in your address book to do the same. Please “dig” it too so more people can also read it.
Hector Aleem is a respected figure. Pakistani government wants to release him, but they are afraid of the mob. A strong uproar from the world community can give them the excuse to act.
Think of this young girl and her siblings and please sign the petition. Send it to everyone who cares. If you have a blog please place a link to it.
Please sign the petition and please spread the word. Not all of us can become Mother Theresa, but we can do the little that is in power to do. It takes so little for you and it could mean a whole world for an entire family. Please show that you care.
The following is Mehwish’s heartwrenching letter to me. It pains me to see people in their desperation writ to me for help when I am in no position to help. We don’t have time. Will you act please now?
Greetings in the name of Lord Jesus Christ. Mr. Sina thank you for making the petition in favor of my father, the signatures have reached 347 but still my father is in jail. Nothing is happening. I wrote to many organizations, but now I want you to write to all organizations in favor of my father because you have sources and people will listen to you.
Have you contacted any Pakistani Government official to release my father? It’s a request to you to please help us because my father doesn’t have any lawyer and I am afraid that the judge will give the decision against him and you know that the punishment of this offence is death.
Waiting for your reply
Please go to this page. Read Mevishe’s plea. Write to the authorities listed there and sign the petition. Also please ask to everyone in your address book to do the same.
Here are some pictures of Hector Aleem in chain
This is not the way a huaman being should be treated, let along a good man like Hector Aleem who has dedicated his life to help others.
