*Sigh* I miss messing with the rabidly-religious on Facebook :(

Did they succeed in getting legal counsel? Do you know?

This whole thing sounds so intense. The whole thing is just wrong. "You insulted my imaginary friend so now you go to jail, you will be tortured, threatened, and maybe killed...Because no one messes with my imaginary friend!?"

~That's just wrong, man. How much more delusional can one get?

But that's just my opinion.

I couldn't agree more. The behaviour of the Muslims on FB is truly appalling.

Day 5 of the Shame of Kano

The police abduction of Mubarak Bala continues. I say abduction rather than arrest because he is being held incommunicado and denied legal representation. That is illegal under Nigerian law. Thus this is an officially sanctioned abduction not arrest.

7 days. A week has passed and no sign of Mubarak Bala. He has been denied access to his legal team. If Islam had it's way he could be any one of us. He could be all of us. Religion poisons everything.

Well, this is certainly circling the drain in a hurry.

Are there plausible avenues for getting something tangible done about this situation? It wouldn't surprise me if the honest answer at this point is, "not really."

Military action, or a police raid?  Maybe a privately financed group of commandos could make an Entebbe-type raid.

Well, yes. I sort-of meant "short of deploying mercs or starting a war"  ;)

Unfortunately, there are times when violence is the only option that works.

Thanks for posting this, Tank. Donated and signed the petition. Yeah, the legal reps may not be able to help and the petition may fall on deaf ears, but it's worth trying.
