Abdul Akram AlSaqa:
Contemporary and innovator Islamic thinker, born in Daria of Damascus governorate on 1944.
Abdul-Akram Al-Sakka promoted freedom and peace without openly criticizing the Syrian government. Security forces arrested him on July 15, 2011, and his family still doesn’t know why.
This is not Abdul-Akram’s first time in detention. When he failed to display the requisite sign of mourning, a Quran, at the mosque on the day then-President Hafez al-Assad died in 2000, security agents detained him for two months. Then, in 2003, Abdul-Akram served a nine-month sentence in Sednaya after a military field court convicted him of peacefully protesting corruption.
