Islam and Human Rights

The IHRC demands for the recovery and impartial enquiry into the kidnapping and forced conversion of the teenage girls- Huma Younis and Mehek Kumari- the state must outlaw the practice of forced conversion penalizing those issuing the certificate of conversion....

Look at our fellow Muslims and the sheer disregard for labour rights. Right from our homes to our factories or small restaurants, we leave no opportunity to harass our employees....

 

Social, political, and legal indicators depict that the gap between theory and practice regarding human rights in Pakistan is widening day by day.....

 

Is the general apathy towards human rights rooted in the observation that institutions themselves also do not respect each other’s constitutional rights and domains? Over time, this tendency creates a society’s template and becomes its DNA that tolerates trampling of each other’s rights....

A state busy manufacturing false narratives against dissenting voices and keeping its citizens hostage in the name of religious interpretations created by the mullahs and denying human rights and liberties to its own people by declaring them sins or forbidden by God can hardly sustain itself....

The Prophet respectfully delivered to these differently-abled Muslims their God-given right to not be reminded of their difference in a demeaning way....

And following in the footsteps of the Holy Prophet, his grandson Imam Husain took the field in Karbala on this day 14 centuries ago to raise a voice for these very rights and confront head-on the Umayyad imperial challenge to the Muslim faith’s egalitarian order....

The International Human Rights Council, Hong Kong (IHRC-HK) is extremely concerned about the malicious and unlawful actions of government of Pakistan against its Executive Director, Mr. Abdul Baseer Naveed who has become the Stateless—neither is he citizen of Pakistan nor of Hong Kong, where he has been residing since 2006.  The Pakistani government has deprived him of his passport, freedom of Movement and right to adopt nationality of his choice....

On the other hand, it is also clear that in Islam, man’s natural condition is freedom; when an abandoned child is discovered, it is assumed to be free...

 

Malaysia joined the ranks of Argentina, Chile and Israel when, on April 3, the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia or Suhakam concluded its 18-month inquiry into the disappearances of social activist Amri Che Mat and Pastor Raymond Koh with a damning conclusion...

There are important geopolitical dimensions to these three scholars’ files. Odah, Qarni, and Omari are not dissidents or revolutionaries. None of them called for the royal family to step down from power. For most of their careers, they avoided criticizing Al Saud royals.....

 

I escaped Bahrain in 2014 after learning of the charge against me, and took up residence in Australia, where I was granted refugee status in 2017. Feeling safer, I often forgot there were still unfair charges against me, and my wife and I planned our honeymoon....

 

The murder of Jamal Khashoggi demolished the myth of a reforming crown prince running Saudi Arabia. But the world needs to raise its voice to support the Saudis actually fighting for reform....

Racism, Slavery, History, and Islam
Racism, Slavery, History, and Islam
T.O. Shanavas, New Age Islam

Moreover, these Islamophobes and their media outlets spread the canard that the slavery by ISIS and Sudanese dictatorship is guided by Muslim religious text. ...

Human Rights Watch says it has been forced to close half its offices in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) due to the security or political risks associated with its work in the region, while the human rights abuses in those countries have only worsened....

 

I would have preferred to write these words in Arabic, in a Saudi newspaper, but after her arrest the Saudi newspapers published her name, her photographs and labelled her a traitor. The same newspapers concealed the names and pictures of the men who could face the death penalty for the murder of Mr. Khashoggi....

 

Despite the acquittal, I have already been punished, as have my co-defendants in various ways: ....

 

Magnifying Pakistan in terms of women and girls’ rights, we find that they are deprived of some sort of right across the country as girls are psychologically pressurized on forced child marriage in Balochistan, FATA, and mostly rural areas of other provinces. They are brutally killed in the name of honour. Many cases of harassment and sexual violence are recorded by the media channel each year. They are deprived of education and only considered children producing machine....

 

Pakistan is already on the watch list of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), and now being blacklisted as a country where religious freedom is usurped will add more worries over its standing in the global community. The fact that the US has put Pakistan and not India on this blacklist clearly states that the diplomatic ties between Islamabad and Washington are not good. In any case, Pakistan being named as one of the worst countries for religious freedom and expression endorses the fact that despite paying a heavy cost for spreading extremism in society, the country is still not ready to give space to its minorities....

 

Rumi's human rights understanding are different from today's definition due to its holistic expression. First of all, from his point of view, a person is not just a simple, ordinary creature that solely consists of flesh and blood, but human beings possess a perfect system with material and spiritual dimensions, the essence of the universe and the purpose of its creation. According to many, Rumi's view played a big role in the formation of his understanding of universal human rights. ....

Some Indonesian mujahideen went back from Karachi to create disorder at home. The covert jihad caused millions of Afghans to flee into Pakistan and Pakistan had to look after them with UN funds. After the Soviets left and al Qaeda did its 9/11 in 2001, the Pashtun government of Mullah Umar fell and most of it moved to Quetta in Balochistan which began to lose its Baloch majority status to the Pashtun....

 

After the Qur’an, the life of the Prophet is the best source of guidance. While elaborating eternal truths, he simultaneously exemplified through his scrupulous behaviour. His life is full of such incidents, where he projects an appropriate sense of morality. Even his bitter enemies confessed that his ethics were great. His thought for human benefit, his works of kindness, his words of love, his effort for peaceful coexistence and his prayers for human salvation are brilliant examples for all to emulate....

 

“I abducted your girls. I will sell them in the market; by Allah... there is a market for selling humans. Allah says I should sell. He commands me to sell. I will sell women. I sell women,” Shekau said in a YouTube video at the time. Michelle Obama, the then-US first lady, spearheaded the #BringBackOurGirls campaign on social media but, at the time of writing, as many as 113 are still being held, presumably in Boko Haram’s Sambisa Forest stronghold....

 

Islam gave to mankind an ideal code of human rights fourteen centuries ago. These rights aim at conferring honour and dignity on mankind and eliminating exploitation, oppression and injustice. Human rights in Islam are firmly rooted in the belief that God, and God alone, is the Law Giver and the Source of all human rights. Due to their Divine origin, no ruler, government, assembly or authority can curtail or violate in any way the human rights conferred by God, nor can they be surrendered.....

If we Muslims desire the full protection of the human rights for the world’s Muslim minorities as an ‘Ummah’, we must ensure that the non-Muslim citizens living in the Muslim majority countries are accorded the same rights and privileges that we Muslims seek to achieve in the non-Muslim nations. In order to achieve this, I would like to offer concrete solutions and final recommendations derived from the Madina Charter of Human Rights (Misaq-e-Madina)—the first ever written constitution of the world formulated by the Muhammad (peace be upon him)……
