There continue to be great concerns about his safety, however. Mental competence did play a role in his release, this is not what most in the west hoped for. The problem of whether there is really any ‘freedom of religion’ in Afghanistan remains.

Muslim clerics continue to call for his death and protest against the interference of the government & the West.
