Open Letter to Yale

I sent this to Yale's Office of Public Affairs

To whom it may concern:

Abdul Rahman is an Afghani man in danger of his life. He committed the capital crime of converting from Islam to Christianity. He has been given the option of renouncing his chosen faith or dying. He is a prisoner of conscience.

Link to Chicago Tribune story

Yale University has recently shown interest in the progressive reform of Afghanistan by accepting Sayed Rahmatullah Hashemi as a student. Perhaps an internationally respected institution like Yale could offer a compromise solution.

While Mr. Rahman may be smoke in the nose of many presently in power in Afghanistan, he would certainly be welcome in the United States. I am requesting that Yale University intervene on his behalf in any way possible.

Thank you
