Lawrence Krauss on Raif Badawi
We asked world-famous theoretical physicist and author Lawrence Krauss for his thoughts on Raif Badawi...
"Raif Badawi should be celebrated as a wonderful satirical and brilliant writer rather than reviled and sentenced to prison for his work. If Saudi Arabia wants to prove they have moved beyond the Middle Ages to join the ranks of the modern world they need to release him immediately, and also indicate their support for free thought and open discussion. Raif’s voice needs to continue to be heard, for the good of his own country."
