Click on the title and it takes you to an article in the Independent newspaper, of 15 November: Imran Khan's message to UK: 'My life is in danger'

Mr Khan had emerged after 11 days in hiding, having gone on the run to escape arrest in the aftermath of General Musharraf's declaration of emergency on 3 November. Until he was detained by police yesterday lunchtime, he was the last major political opponent of the general still not arrested or under detention. He was charged under Pakistan's Anti-Terrorism Act, which includes penalties that can carry the death sentence or life imprisonment.

Students manhandled Imran Khan in Lahore's Punjab University, apparently, including punching the ex-sportsman, a hero who led Pakistan's cricket team to victory in the 1992 world cup. What kind of 'students' are these? What are they studying???? What is happening to Pakistan???????

I'm collecting signatures and want to include them on letters to Pakistan's Ministry of Law, Justice and Human Rights and other places. Please post if you would like your name included. This is not just a problem for Pakistan, it is a nuclear power and considered dangerous, see a Newsweek article
COVER STORY: PAKISTAN - Where the Jihad Lives Now Islamic militants have spread beyond their tribal bases, and have the run of an unstable, nuclear-armed nation.
