Supporting Choudhury

Courtesy of Jihad Watch, a plea from Dr. Richard Benkin on behalf of Bangladeshi journalist Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury:

On November 14, Representives Mark Kirk (R-IL) and Nita Lowey (D-NY) introduced a Congressional Resolution urging the Bangladesh government to drop all charges against Muslim journalist Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury and cease all other forms of harassment against him. I have attached Congressman Kirk's press release about this, as well as the Resolution itself, House Resolution 1080. It will be voted on before Congress adjourns at the end of this year.

Please contact your Congressional Representatives and urge them to support House Resolution 1080. Please encourage everyone you know to do the same. This is an issue that both Democrats and Republicans are supporting, and we must get it passed by a huge margin. This is our chance and the Congress's chance to make a strong statement for justice and against radicalism, and help save the life of this very brave man. You should contact your current Member of Congress who was in office before the recent elections.

Please act now and get everyone you know to act.

Please visit the Jihad Watch post for PDF links to the relevant documents. You can find out who your Congressman is, and how to contact him or her, by going to Project Vote Smart and typing in your 9 digit zip code. If you don't know your full zip code, use the USPS web site to find it.
