Nigerian atheist Mubarak Bala faces charges of “blasphemy” for criticizing Islam.
Fanatical officials from Kano, which makes blasphemy a crime, kidnapped him from his home state, Kaduna, where their law does not apply. Even if it were legitimate to punish people for their opinions, this would make it unjust in this particular case.
Atheists are persecuted in many countries worldwide. On the average, Americans are more prejudiced against Atheists than against any religion.
