Mubarak Bala is a highly educated chemical engineer. He was about to continue his studies in petroleum engineering in London, England, before he was abruptly committed to a secure psychiatric ward.

He has been beaten by his family, drugged and confined to the Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital, in the Shariah state of Kano in Nigeria. This has been done because he renounced Islam and has openly declared himself to be an atheist.

His father, a politically powerful figure has declared atheism to be a mental illness and is holding Mubarak in a secure ward behind tight security.

A human Rights lawyer has tried to gain access to Mubarak, but has been denied entry.

We need to get the Human Rights Organisations to take action and free Mubarak Bala from false imprisonment and forced medication.

The situation is beyond dire, as Mubarak’s family has already threatened to move him to a secret location which Mubarak feels could indicate the possibility of an honour killing. The doctor also indicated that his condition is worsening, due to the drug treatments and not being able to eat.

      No one should be held hostage against their will when they haven't committed any crime. Freedom of religion should be encouraged. It is an adults choice to make. I have no problems with anyone's choice as long as it does not in any way materially, spiritually or morally detract from my religious beliefs.

      I am non-religious too and I'm disgusted with the way other people are treated when they "come out" as non-theists

      It is so, so important that Governments begin to put pressure on nations worldwide to promote Science education particularly Physics and eliminate the dangers that hide behind all these ancient mythological beliefs. They have no place in the 21st Century and this man needs to be freed at once along with anyone else persecuted for the same reasons. It is in this man and others like him that hope for the future of mankind resides.
