The Freedom Agenda at Work in Afghanistan

Jan. 31: Afghans demonstrate against a death sentence given to reporter Perwiz Kambakhsh in Kabul. A three-judge panel sentenced Kambakhsh to death for distributing an Internet article to journalism students questioning why men can have four wives while women can have only one husband.

Sentenced to death for holding an opinion! How logical and fair-minded these numbskulls are! The reporter should have known better though. To question anything about their religion is an automatic death sentence. Some religion!

Well, my point in the photo is in showing that there are Muslim protestors in Afghanistan, who don't agree with the sentencing. They are exercising their freedom by speaking out. Something unlikely to have occurred under Taliban rule.
