Hamza has finally been released. Thank you for your support.

تم إطلاق سراح حمزة أخيرا، شكرا لدعمكم...

Because Hamza Kashgari has been imprisoned for a whole year in Saudi Arabia illegally after he published three tweets on Twitter. He has spent in prison double the time the Saudi Government is allowed to detain anyone without a trial. Hamza's family has grown tired of the Saudi Government ignoring his case. We have to stand with Hamza Kashgari for his right of expressing his thoughts and we demand Hamza Kashgari be released immediately.

دعما لحمزة السجين لعام كامل ظلما بعد نشره عدة رسائل يعبر فيها عن تقديره للنبي محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم أساء الناس والحكومة السعودية فهمها فتم ظلمه.
حمزة وعائلته تعبوا من مماطلة السلطات السعودية في قضيته وعدم إطلاق سراحه حتى الآن رغم أنه قضى في السجن ضعف المدة القانونية التي يمكن للسلطات السعودية أن تحتجزه فيها دون محاكمة. من أجل حرية الرأي وضد الظلم وقّع معنا لأجل إطلاق سراح حمزة حالا.
