So now, Rifqa Bary, Sri Lankan apostate from Islam, has turned 18. We must wish her well and that she be safe in her future life.
With that, let's also turn to a related subject that's quite disturbing, involving her supposedly loving and caring father: The Jawa Report revealed that Mohammed Bary apparently threatened a counselor of Rifqa's into not testifying on her behalf via a court-appointed counselor of his (!), as reported in court filings, some of which may remain sealed. And the prosecutor in the case, Ron O'Brien, refused to file charges because "it will negatively impact the Muslim community". Seems that what we have here is someone unsuitable for his job, because he acts according to cultural sensitivity.
Mr. O'Brien has backed off his initial stance following an outburst - at least it seems that way - but we've still got to keep our eyes open. You can contact his office here, or at the following address:
Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien
373 South High St. 14th Floor
Columbus, Ohio 43215
The father - and come to think of it, the mother and brother too - cannot be allowed to evade justice again.
