Dr Ahmed Mohsen is now FREE..
After 3 months Ahmed spent in Jail just because he is a blogger in Egypt, I think it is fit to say couple of words about one of the most enlightened men i have encountered in my life.
I knew Ahmed as a med student through various discussions in online forums, as he is for ikhwan school of thought and i am somehow not for it, we kept debating that for years in which enriched my thinking and it is fair to say his as well.
Ahmed is a hardworking influential young man, the kind of person you would see climbing ranks in whatever he does, and you could see him in a leading position anywhere in the world, but because he is where he is right now he is ending up in jail.
Because he is conforonting power with truth
because he wants a better future for himself and others
he looks at the insanity, the injuctice, torture, corruption in his country and deciding not stay silent about it, that is why he being sent to jail.
The last time he was in jail he could use that unpleasant long visit for his own good and came out stronger and he even blogged about his experience, somehow i feel this time about his visit was rougher than the last and with all heart i hope i a wrong!
i would like to talk about the very strange details of his capture and jail time, but that would be next time.
