    May the All-Bountiful Source of Mercy bless each and every one of these courageous people for their strong stance and apology for the wrongs inflicted on the followers of a peaceful, loving Faith.

    Thanks very much for enabling people in far off places like Limbe, Cameroon to comment on this issue. The right to worship is realy a global concern and most of us can only write to say that Human Rights are Human values therefore authorities should let their subjects practice their rights without infridgement.

    All of us Human beings are created by the same God, as such the fundamental right of worship should be done with no cohession whatsoever. It does not even have to be done in uniformity throughout a given country as individuals have a path to spirituality onwhich they will chart until they meet their Creator.

    If on this path to spirituality, we should meet people and do not understand what they are doing rather we should reflect and enquire from them than attack then and do some funny things and on the judgement day be ask to atone for our failures.

    If ever there was a good case for the elimination from this earth of a theocratic government, Iran is it. Let’s hope it will be the last attempt at theocracy in the world. Thanks to the responsible Iranians who have signed the document and seen the light.
