The tragic case of Akmal Shaikh

The Akmal Shaikh case is very tragic. May I request all those Muslim brothers and sisters who were moved by it to campaign equally for other cases of injustice, irrespective of the victim’s faith or religion. A good way to start is by supporting the work of organisations like Amnesty International and Reprieve, since this is precisely what they do. The Prophet (pbuh) taught, “Beware of the prayer of the oppressed, for there is no veil between it and God,” and he was certainly not talking about oppressed *Muslims* only, unlike many of us today.
