About this product
- DescriptionThe whole world kws the face of the young man with the bright black eyes. He is in the process of becoming an icon, a symbol, similar to the famous photo of Che Guevara. The face is that of Raif Badawi, who was minated for the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize. Arrested in Saudi Arabia, he was sentenced to ten years' imprisonment and 1000 lashes - a de facto death sentence. The woman who succeeded in getting such people as Barack Obama and Prince Charles to appeal personally to the Saudi King for Badawi's release is his wife, Ensaf Haidar, who began the campaign to free her husband with a self-painted poster in front of a small church in Sherbrooke, Canada. When Raif Badawi and Ensaf Haidar fell in love with each other as adolescents, they did so in violation of every moral precept in the strictly Islamic Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. During their clandestine love affair, the young couple had idea that, more than a decade later, Ensaf's love for Raif would attract the attention of politicians from around the world as the blogger's wife w mobilises global public opinion in an effort to save her husband from murder at the hands of the Saudi judiciary. With a courage born of desperation, she is fighting from exile in Canada to secure the release of the father of her three children, and is bringing great pressure to bear on the murderous regime in her native country. Ensaf Haidar tells Raif's and her own story: the story of their shared liberal ideas and her fight for her husband's release.

Shocking what some have to endure.
I could not put this book down. Compelling reading, well written. What Raif Badawi's wife went through for the sake of freedom and free speech is incomprehensible. It makes one wonder, once again, why and how a country can condone such cruel treatment for those who sincerely believe in freedom of speech, which only ultimately results in jail and suffering. In the eyes of the rest of the world, they have done no wrong, yet the crowds will gather and cheer as the prisoner suffers in a public place. I cried. I wish his family peace, and that as a result of her amazing efforts, Raif can be freed and be reunited with his beautiful family.
