Please save the life of the innocent girl Rizana Nafeek
Posted on October 26th, 2010

– Ben Silva

This girl from a poor background is most likely illiterate  and not knowledgeable in child care. It is most inhuman and barbaric to sentence her to death. I believe all civilised humans, what ever the nationality or religion should appeal to the authorities to spare her life. I am a Buddhist  from Sri Lanka  and I am aware that young girls  from poor families are not knowledgeable in baby care and may not be well informed.

It is indeed great injustice to pass the  death  sentence  to this poor woman  and we should unite to save her life, in a manner similar to the way Chileans united to save  the trapped  miners. Please start a campaign  and do what ever possible, including writing to world leaders, writing to HR orgs and media  to save  the life of Rizana Nafeek.

    Ben,

    Sri lanka communities should collect the money and keep them ready to pay blood money in case other options do not work. Also, Sri lanka government can pay it too. However, I believe Saudi Royal will pardon her.

    We have not seen any Muslim Sir lankans supporting her in Lankaweb yet.
    There are so many Mulim writers but I saw few writers suppor Saudi Arabian regime, rather than her.
