"Yklas Kabduakasov of Kazakhstan, who was freed from prison in order to serve seven years of house arrest five months ago, is back in prison. On Dec. 28, 2015, a court convicted him of "inciting religious hatred" and changed the 54-year-old father's punishment to two year's imprisonment in a labor camp. Fellow Christians are "shocked" at the harsh punishment for the former Muslim. After three months in the labor camp, Yklas is reportedly thinner, but he does not complain. He is preparing to lodge a final appeal to the Supreme Court.
Kabduakasov fearlessly shared the gospel with his family and friends after his conversion from Islam."

In your email to the Kazakhstan Ambassador to the United States, please be brief and simply and respectfully request Yklas Kabduakasov's release. Do not mention Voice of the Martyrs, Prisoner Alert or Engage Daily. I suggest you also ask the government of Kazakhstan to respect Article 18 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which states the following:
"Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance."
