Pakistan Government take care of Faraz!
Ahmed Faraz is the greatest Urdu poet and intellectual of our times. In fact he is a national asset of Pakistan. Since his illness early July 08, he has been fighting for his life in a Chicago hospital. The government of Pakistan has not offered any assistance with his medical expenses in Chicago or with arrangements to fly him back to Islamabad for ongoing treatment. Please sign this petition to let the Pakistan Government know that its silence and inaction is not appreciated. Having fought for democracy all his life, Faraz is more important than any political leadership of the day and should be looked after by the government. Nothing less is acceptable!!! Please spread the word and encourage everyone to sign this petition. Saeed Khan Sydney, Australia
