I hope he gets a really good bodyguard...
Abdur Rahman may be released from prison soon. That's a victory for international pressue, probably not such a good thing for Hamid Karzai. Let's see how the "Muslim street" reacts. Prediction: it won't be good:
Religious and political figures meeting at a Kabul hotel, including former prime minister Ahmad Shah Ahmadzai and Shia cleric Asif Mohsenia who commanded anti-Soviet forces in the 1980s, said the government should ensure that Islamic law is enforced.

It said if its demands were ignored, "the Muslim people of Afghanistan would consider struggle their legal and religious duty". ...

...Virtually everyone interviewed in a small sample of opinion in several parts of the deeply conservative, Muslim country on Friday said Rahman should be punished.

Several clerics raised the issue during weekly sermons in Kabul on Friday, and there was little sympathy for Rahman.
