______________________________________________________________
We, the undersigned, call upon the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan President Karzai for immediate action. This petition is a resounding plea from concerned persons around the world to the Afghan government for clemency and the immediate release of Gulnaz and her daughter from Badhambagh prison and to clear her from all charges. In 2009, 18-year old Gulnaz was raped, impregnated as a result of the rape, and subsequently put in prison for adultery. Gulnaz (who was a virgin and unmarried) was raped by her cousin’s husband. She along with her baby daughter, who was born in prison, have been imprisoned for almost two years. She has been victimized and told that the only way for her to maintain her honor and to secure her & her daughter's release out of prison was for her to marry the man who raped her. It has been recently communicated that Gulnaz has been sentenced to three years for not reporting her attack early enough. We expect the immediate release of Gulnaz and her daughter from prision, with no conditions. We request the courage and action of the Afghan government to stand up for all human rights, especially those pertaining to women like Gulnaz, who have been imprisoned for moral crimes.
