E Mail to let the Government Know How You Feel About Babar Ahmad
Babar Ahmad is a British citizen who has been detained without trial in the UK for almost 8 years facing extradition to the US for offences allegedly committed in the UK. All the evidence against him was collected in the UK with most of it being sent to the US before the Crown Prosecution Service could decide whether to prosecute him in the UK or not, a fact only admitted by the CPS in November 2011. It is only right that Babar be tried in the UK and not extradited to the US.

Please write to the Director of Public Prosecutions, Keir Starmer, to demand that Babar Ahmad be immediately put on trial in the UK. Copies will also be sent to the Attorney General and the Home Secretary.

We encourage supporters to prepare their own letters using the above points. A sample letter is below for your convenience but a personalised letter always carries more weight.

Thank you for your support!

In His Own Words

Seven years ago this day

Walking to go home

Stopped by thieves on the way

With hearts hard like stone


A matchstick model of a pyramid style mosque with a flat base and four minarets made out of approximately 25000 matches by Babar Ahmad. The project started on 16 July 2008 and completed on 11 November 2009. It took 1000 man-hours to build spanning a duration of 1 year and 4 months. Its dimensions are approximately 490mm x 490mm x 490mm.

Beyond the mask and beyond the front.

Beyond the name and beyond the image.

The night is dark and there’s no sign of light.

The tunnel is long and there’s no end in sight.
