Abdullah was released after seven years, his children had grown up without a father. Sadia’s only aim was to find him and eventually she did. Sadia was directed to a local advocacy group who deal with issues like hers and after that slowly they found a way to bring Abdullah home.
Like hundreds of other men at Guantanamo Abdullah was never convicted of any crime and nor had he ever been charged.
Rahim never married again even though he was informed about Salma’s death. Salma’s body was never returned for burial but later images of her tortured body were published along with thousands of other photographs that the US government tried to block from being published.

Thank you to everyone who has read this blog. There are thousands of innocent people who have been affected by the the war on terror. If we remain silent when others are being oppressed then we become part of the problem. I ask you to share this story as much as you can and keep all those who have been detained illegally in your prayers.
