I was saddened and upset to read the story on your website. I knew when the Extradition Act was passed the results would be something like this, and that it would make someone like Mr Ahmad the lightning rod for our fears.
I am so sorry I did not do more at the time to oppose this dreadful law. I have written to my MP asking her to support its repeal. Since Tuesday’s announcement, it would seem too late to lobby the Home Secretary, but you never know.
I’ve also written to the Commissioner of the IPCC who wrote such an unsatisfactory response to Mr Ahmad’s complaint, and sent a copy to Mr Ahmad at Woodhill.
It seems little enough. I wish I could see more evidence at your website of support from non-Muslims.
My best wishes for the High Court hearing.

Stephen Taylor, United Kingdom Thursday 17th November 2005

 

A British citizen who is alleged to have committed an offence in the UK has the right to a fair trial here and is innocent until proven guilty. Under no circumstances can it be justified to extradite him to another country on whose soil there is no allegation of his having committed an offence.
The nature or seriousness of an alleged crime cannot alter this basic justice.

Babar, may Allah give you support, taqwa and jaza (reward) for your unbearable patience. May he give Jannatul Firdaws and join you and us with the righteous. Make dua for the Muslim Ummah since your dua from inside prison and under injustice is more likely to be accepted.

May Allah Avenge your Injustice.

Nussrah, USA Thursday 17th November 2005

 

The fact that that Babar has been held for so long without charge or trial is injustice in itself.
Our so called ‘socialist’ Labour Home Secretary submitting Babar into the hands of the USA, who now very publicly known to the world as torturers and abusers of political detainees, is an abuse of power and an abuse of his human rights.
Action must be taken now to prevent Babar Ahmad from becoming yet another tragic statistic in the USA’s tyrannical, cynical and unjustified annexing of the Middle East.

Robert Hill, Blackpool, England Thursday 17th November 2005

 

If Babar Ahmad has committed crimes, try him in the UK. If not, release him. The US is becoming known as a country in which to be accused of a crime is to be guilty.
If we pride ourselves as being a civilised country we should not extradite people to other countries for things that are not crimes here. This is a dangerous precedent indeed.

Owain Clarke, Southampton Thursday 17th November 2005

 

I am appalled, disgusted, and upset to hear the news that our brother Babar will be extradited to the US.
I will continue to do what i can to help and feel as Muslims we need to start standing up to these so-called politicians running this country, why is all these muslim groups that say they are working with the govt not doing anything? why has their not been a backlash from them? why have they not condemned these actions? i am ashamed that these people are muslims like me and yet sit back and do nothing when they have a certain position of authority.
Do they not think this could be their son? their brother? their father?
Please everyone lets continue to fight the terrorisation in the uk by our own politicians against civilians b4 we start on others.
May Allah swt make it easy on your family and our brother Babar and punish those who do injustice to others.Ameen

Sameena Parvin, London Thursday 17th November 2005

 

Tactful, just and intelligent foreign policy by the British government is now needed more than ever.
Injustice against groups and individuals is the biggest method of recruiting violent activists. This simple act of sending a suspect to a country known for its human rights abuses may pacify US heads of state, but will simple fuel the existing fire of radical Islam.
I urge ALL countries especially Israel and the USA to apply the rule of law fairly and to avoid adding fuel to the fire of an already angry and ignored Muslim community.
May God bless all those who strive towards peace.

Yaqub Allen, Wirral, Merseyside Thursday 17th November 2005

 

i have been following Babar Ahmad’s story for sometime now and was really disgusted with Clarke’s ruling to send Babar to the u.s. i woke this morning at approx 0400 for no reason whatsoever but still had that really upset feeling inside me. I could only think of two people; one was my brother Babar and the other my 13 yr old sister from Palestine who was shot 17 times and the man that did it walked free.
I got out of bed, prepared wudu and read naffal pray and did dua to Allah (swt) to help my brother and my sister’s family in this hard time.
Inshallah my dua will be accepted by Allah (swt) and my brother Babar will return unharmed and my sister’s family will get the justice they deserve. (ameen)

Mohammed Azeem Azam, Bradford Thursday 17th November 2005

 

We would like to support you in this difficult time. The law does not make any sense. How can a British subject who has not been charged under any law in the UK be extradited to USA to be charged as a terrorist without any evidence given.
Please keep the faith and carry on the fight.

AP, London Thursday 17th November 2005

 

I AM SO SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT BABAR AHMED.MAY ALLAH GIVE YOU ALL PATIENCE AT A TIME THAT IS SO PAINSTAINKING FOR ALL OF YOU!BE THERE FOR HIM AT ALL TIMES-

WHY ARE THE MUSLIMS ALWAYS TARGETTED WITHOUT ENOUGH EVIDENCE? WHY PICKING ON ONLY THE RELIGION “ISLAM”? – WHAT ARE THEY SO AFRAID OF? MAYBE ALLAH!!!!!
THE MORE THEY TORTURE THE MORE STRONGER WE GO TO OUR DEEN!
TO ASK AND PRAY FOR PEACE!!! PEACE!!!! PEACE!!!!!

Our deep sympathy goes to Babar Ahmad and his family.
Injustice towards sincere muslim is now can be seen everywhere. Malaysia has its own “impressive” track record on this. Detaining people and depriving them from freedom without trial is not tolerable. May justice prevail.
As Bro Babar mentioned “I entrust my affairs to Allah and His Words from the Quran, “And when the two armies saw one another, the companions of Moses said, “Indeed we are finished.” Moses said: “No! Indeed, with me is my Lord and He will guide me.”‘[1] O Allah, You have seen what they have done to me. O Allah, avenge my injustice. In Allah we put our trust.”

Handzalah Ahmad, Penang, Malaysia Thursday 17th November 2005

 

My family fully supports you Brother, and prays to Allah (Azawajal)for your release, Inshallah. May He also keep you strong, as you have made us strong through your reminders, Ameen.

Khattaab, New Zealand Thursday 17th November 2005

 

EU Countries can only extradite individuals to the US if there is absolutely no possible way that they be executed or transfered to their internment camp in Cuba.
The Judge clearly erred as he used the word ‘negligible’ which means that there is a posibility (albeit an insignificient) that he could be executed and that decision is illegal because under EU law there should be no possibility that he can be executed. So it does not matter if the chance is negligible that still means there is a chance and therefore this ruling can be overrulled in Europe.

Paul Lane, Ireland Wednesday 16th November 2005

 

Babar Ahmad, u suffer with patience, so urs is the greatest victory…and inshallah the doors of jannah shall await you.

Ur Sister, London Wednesday 16th November 2005

 

I am very angered and disgusted with the decision by the home sectary. May Allah have mercy on Barbar and his family. Inshallah I will continue to support the campaign and i pray that Allah will give victory to barbar in the high court. (Amen)
This just goes to say we cant expect justice from such a government that treats its own citizens in this way.

Usman Arshad, London, UK Wednesday 16th November 2005

 

Having just read your story I?m lost for words, I honestly cannot find the words to express my shock & sadness that this is happening to you. May your faith & family give you strength through this terrible journey.
Hold tight to your faith in Allah my dear brother, may He give you the strength to bear this adversity.

Saleem, USA Wednesday 16th November 2005

 

Babar we know you are innocent,our prayers are with you.

Ajaz, Hounslow Wednesday 16th November 2005

 

Today we face another hurdle in the case of bro Babar Ahmed and the fate of British Muslims. My message to the family is please do not despair, you have shown incredible courage so far, Inshallah justice and truth SHALL prevail over tyranny and injustice. May Allah expose the true criminals-Ameen.

Umm A’tika, Sheffield, England Wednesday 16th November 2005

 

As an ordinary US citizen, I am against extradition of Babur Ahmad to the US. He is a British citizen. If he has done something wrong, let the laws of his country determine that. The fear and disorientation that result in being sent far away from family and familiar legal system to become prisoner in the US, a country with a dubious track record with its incarceration of foreign nationals, are guaranteed to distort the process of due justice.
