In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful, Most GraciousAnnual Muslim Solidarity Iftaar at HMP Belmarsh
An event to remember Muslim prisoners in the UK and abroad
7 years after 9/11, the number of Muslims in Western prisons continues to soar. Many of these Muslims are not behind bars due their involvement in drug related crime, violence or hooliganism, but are instead prisoners of conscience- prisoners whose only crime has been to voice an opinion. They have either been found guilty by association or are languishing behind bars through laws that permit indefinite detention.
Other Muslim prisoners have either been subjected to torture and abuse in legal anomalies such as Camp X-Ray, or have disappeared altogether, only to resurface in Gulags of the modern world. All these prisoners have one thing in common- they have all been robbed of their human rights.
This Iftaar has been arranged to remember the plight of these prisoners and their families. Guest Speakers:
Uthman Lateef (Abu Mujahid)
