SAUDI ARABIA - Pen Printer prize awarded to Saudi blogger Raif Badawi, in jail for "insulting Islam” [AN]

The activist is serving a 10 year sentence and a thousand lashes for having promoted online debates on current events, politics and religion. Wikipedia founder accepted the award on his behalf and launched a new appeal for his release. His wife Ensaf Haidar says he was “honored” by such prestigious award


God bless Raif Badawi for spreading freedom of thought, a truly gifted man who works with greater humanity together with God!

The pope should speak out against this unjust punishment! :mad:
