SET MY PEOPLE FREE TO WORSHIP ME
Presents human rights request to the Arab League
Cairo, Egypt, Saturday, April 3, 2010 – Set My People Free to Worship Me, a new network of individuals, churches and organisations working for the freedom of religious converts to live and practice their faith, to experience equality and justice in their home countries presented a letter addressed to Dr. Amer Musa the General Secretary of the Arab League office on Saturday (Easter Eve) April 3, 2010 at 12 noon in Cairo.
Founder and Leader, Kamal Fahmi said, “Set My People Free to Worship Me would like to request that the Arab League consider giving absolute freedom for all Muslims in the Arab World to choose their belief or religion, to stop all forms of discrimination against all minorities and to protect the freedom of individuals and groups to worship and proclaim their beliefs.”
“We appeal to the Arab League to consider the requests outlined in the petition letter. We are dismayed that religious liberty is curtailed in most countries in the Arab World and would like to appeal for justice, equality and mercy,” said Kamal Fahmi.
“Our plan to hold simultaneous marches in a number of cities has been postponed due to unforeseen circumstances. We hope to have a simple protest in England and Australia on May 22, 2010. We apologise for any inconvenience caused,” said Kamal Fahmi regretfully. “We want to invite individuals, churches, religious bodies and NGOs to participate in these justice and peace protest in England and Australia.”
Kamal draws inspiration from the involvement of Martin Luther King Jr. in the civil rights movement. He believes strongly in religious liberty with the onslaught of religious persecution worldwide, “We call on the Arab League to respond to setting things right as Edmund Burke says, ‘For evil men to triumph, it is only necessary for good men to do nothing.’ ”
Kamal Fahmi brings a strong background in non-governmental organization development. Fahmi has spent over 20 years working in the Middle East and Africa in Christian based organizations. He has also been involved in advocating on human rights issues throughout the years.
