can someone explain to me how someone can go to jail for 15 years for lending some guy $300? 

apparently the only crime this person committed is that he lived in london with a psycho muslim when he was a grad student and he lent him $300?

i'm really confused, grad students live in all sorts of crap places because they have no money and have all sorts of crap roommates.

the imam of our community went to jail for 15 years as well. over WITNESSING A LOAN. no joke that is the ONLY thing he did. he is a completely innocent man.

fahad hashmi has been in solitary confinement the last 3 years. he was facing a long trial, more torture and 70+years. he made the right decision to take the plea deal of 15 years. may Allah give him justice.
