Campaign for Dr. Mohamed Haneef

Released after 25 days in detention

Protest loud and wide for the Indian doctor who is being held on trumped up charges and denied chance to visit his wife and daughter in his home country even when it is clear that he has nothing to do with terrorism or Glasgow bombing.
