Campaign Update: Intisaar Saatcioglu, Prisoner of Faith, Turkey, freed.

Intisar Saatcioglu who had been in prison for one year was freed, 17th October from 'Badirma Prison'. She was jailed for reciting a poem against the hijab ban in 1999.

She was welcomed by many activists, writer and relative at the entrance of the city of Istanbul where she delivered a short speech in which she said; “I have sacrificed one year of my life for my Lord, I hope He has accepted it. I will never give up for fighting my faith even I am to be jailed”.

She was the last member of the Kaya family in prison. Her sisters and mother were released early this year.

Campaigners are asked to remember Nureddin Sirin who is still incarcerated for helping organise a Quds Day rally, and who recently received a further sentence of two years to add to the 17 and half years he is already serving.

“And what reason have you that you should not fight in the way of Allah and of the weak among the men and the women and the children, (of) those who say: Our Lord! Cause us to go forth from this town, whose people are oppressors, and give us from Thee a guardian and give us from Thee a helper.”
