Afghan journalist and champion of women’s rights arrested in Iran
Ali Mohaqiq Nasab arrested in Qom, Iran
Monday 10 March 2008, by
Afghan journalist, and editor, Ali Mohaqiq Nasab, aged 52 has been arrested in Qom, Iran. No further information is available regarding the charges, or Nasab’s condition. However, Mohaqiq Nasab is a noted Shiite sympathizer who promotes women’s rights, and a more liberal interpretation of Islamic law.
Mohaqiq Nasab, editor and founder of the monthly publication Haqoq-e-Zan (Women’s Rights) was sentenced by a Kabul court in October, 2005 to two years in prison, following a trial on blasphemy charges. He had already spent several weeks in prison. These past charges stemmed from his re-printing articles by an Iranian scholar that criticized the stoning of Muslims who convert to another religion, and those accused of committing adultery. A high court in Kabul reduced the sentence to three months and three days, which were suspended, despite demands for the death penalty by certain Muslim clerics.
