The Voice of the Martyrs is co-sponsoring a petition drive with China Aid, to bring awareness to Alim who has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. Alim's mother Wushuerhan faced this harsh reality in the summer of 2009, when her son was forced to undergo two secret trials before being charged with leaking state secrets to foreigners, and condemned to the maximum prison sentence by the Xinjiang Courts. Alimujiang Yimiti is a Uyghur Christian, who converted from Islam in 1995. He and his wife Gulinuer led a house church ministry in Kashgar, Xinjiang, spreading messages of hope and peace in a region riddled with ethnic conflict and violence. Targeted for his minority faith and ethnicity, Alim has been persecuted unjustly in what his lawyer, Dr. Li Baiguang calls “the worst case of religious persecution in the past decade.” Please read more at FREE ALIM and please sign the petition and tell all of your friends. We have seen how the petition drive helped with Gao, now let's stand with Alim.
