International Purple Hijab and Kufi Day 2014

Coming together to celebrate life and end domestic abuse in the world

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Jan. 19, 2014 - STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. -- We gather again for the fifth time since the death of Aasiya Hassan at the hands of her husband in 2009 to bring more attention to the issue of domestic abuse in the Islamic community and the world. "This commemoration of the lives lost due to domestic abuse in the Islamic community worldwide and especially in the US is necessary until our community is more unified in making awareness of this issue and assistance for survivors a top priority", says Hadayai Majeed, Co-founder and Administrator of the Baitul Salaam Network, Inc.-International.

International Purple Hijab and Kufi day is an annual event where we let survivors of domestic abuse know we love you and we are fighting for them to be safe and protected within the Islamic community. The event started as a response to the 2009 beheading of Aasiya Hassan wife of former Bridges TV founder Muzzamil Hassan in upstate New York. We found out shortly after this event that we had lost several members of the Islamic community due to domestic abuse to include children going back to 1999. Many of these deaths were not reported as domestic abuse cases. Many family members would not speak to the authorities about any details or just let the murders be listed however the local authorities chose to list them.

The Baitul Salaam Network, Inc.-International has approximately 52 names of women, men and children who have been murdered by family members due to domestic abuse in the US. Unfortunately outside the US so-called "Honor Killings" are more frequent and due to cultural norms more difficult to track.

In metro Atlanta there will be a commemoration at the Madina Institute located at 3580 Sweetwater Rd., Duluth on Saturday, February 15 starting at 11 am. Imam Mendes is the featured speaker. Brother Bilal Stroud facilitator of Muslim Men Against Domestic Violence-Atlanta, Hadayai Majeed co-founder and Administrator of the Baitul Salaam Network, Inc.-International and Sr. Queen (poet/spoken word artist) are listed as speakers. An open forum is a part of the program for survivors who are safe to speak and the community to discuss the subject in an open.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information call 770-255-8500 Monday-Thursday 7 am-7 pm.
