Hairulla Khamidov

 

Hairulla Khamidov is a young Uzbek Muslim journalist, was arrested in Tashkent and charged with membership in an alleged extremist group. A police search of his home found recordings of sermons by the independent Muslim clerics.  Many believe that Khamidov was targeted because of his popular religious program on a private radio station. In May 2010, Khamidov received a six-year prison camp sentence.

Hairulla Khamidov has been RELEASED.
