Christopher Hitchens dies at age of 62

Dear Ghazal,

Christopher Hitchens, one of the bravest opponents of religious hypocrisy and fighter for a secular and educated society died today. In his 2007 book “God is not Great” Hitchens dismantled the concept of a God or a supreme being as being a totalitarian belief that destroys individual freedom. His opinion that free expression and scientific discovery should replace religion as a means of teaching ethics and defining human civilization clashed very early with the islamist view of bringing the entire human society in line with the Quoran. In 1989 he raised his voice against the death-sentence (Fatwa) imposed on Salman Rushdie by the head of iranian state Ajatollah Khomeini.
