This is great news. One for the good guys. Let’s hope all goes well. Last week, I wrote a post at the National Catholic Register about Sayed Musa being put to death in Afghanistan for being a Christian.

Thanks to Kristi for the heads up from Senator Richard Lugar:

Thank you for contacting me regarding the reported detainment of Mr. Sayed Mossa (also spelled Mr. Syed Musa) in Afghanistan. I appreciate this opportunity to respond.

My staff recently participated in a conference call with Ambassador Jim Keith, Assistant Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, regarding Mr. Mossa. Ambassador Keith informed my staff that thanks to international pressure, particularly from the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, the government of Afghanistan has placed Mr. Mossa’s prosecution on hold. Ambassador Keith believes that within a matter of weeks, Mr. Mossa will be quietly released and granted asylum in another country, possibly Pakistan where his family currently resides.

Keep praying and contacting your legislators to ensure this comes off.
