Pledge “FakeSheik”

"I will publish a picture of Mazher Mahmood a.k.a. the Fake Sheikh but only if 10 other people will do the same on the internet."

— Guido Fawkes

Deadline to sign up by: 7th April 2006
14 people signed up (4 over target)

More details
Mazher Mahmood wants to censor the world from publishing his picture. His paper the "News of the World" publishes pictures of people who are not even public figures, many of whom have been entrapped by him in sting operations which have no public interest beyond titillation.

What is good for the goose is good for the gander. Support press freedom. Publish and be damned!
