The number of people who have joined a Facebook page calling for the death of Hamza Kashgari for Twitter blasphemy against the Prophet Muhammad has climbed from 8,000 on Thursday to 16,000 this morning (I just checked the page).
Yesterday, the New York Times reported the figure at 13,000:
More than 13,000 people have joined a Facebook page titled “The Saudi People Demand the Execution of Hamza Kashgari.”
Are there an equivalent number of Muslims speaking out through social media in defense of Hamza Kashgari’s liberty? You would think an American Muslim, for example, might start a pro-Kashgari liberty page (since an American Muslim is in safe remove from the arm of Muslim-majority governments).
If someone knows of such a page, please direct me to it.
