Kambaksh Afghan embassy protest

The Sayad Parwez Kambaksh campaign staged a protest today outside the Afghan embassy in London organised by the Iranian Secular Society. The event was led by Faiborz Pooya who said that he too had been told that it was likely Sayad Parwez Kambaksh would not be executed but would remain imprisoned.


“Commuting the death sentence is not enough. He should be released immediately. Unconditional freedom and nothing else. We will not stop this protest until that happens,

“Sayad Parwez Kambaksh is in prison and he is under great emotional pressure and he is in the same cells as Taliban prisoners, who have beaten him as they have been told by the guards that he blasphemed,” Pooya said.

The campaign to save Kambaksh has now attracted more than 77,000 signatures online at The Independent and almost 1000 people have joined the Defend Sayad Parwez Kambaksh Facebook group.
