Great Work Done By One Law For All In Support Of Equal Rights And Equality Before The Law
The International Civil Liberties Alliance (ICLA) would like declare its admiration and full support for the recent work done by One Law for All (OLfA). OLfA is an organisation that like ICLA is working to oppose sharia inequalities. A recent letter sent to supporters of OLfA entitled ’One Law for All has changed the debate on Sharia’ highlighted many of that organisation’s wonderful achievements in the United Kingdom:
1) They sent representatives to meet with Trevor Phillips, Chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, and discussed sharia tribunals and the associated gender inequality, and the double standards that appear to exist with regard to the granting of charity status to organisations.
2) They have played a very important role in supporting Baroness Cox’s Arbitration and Mediation (Equality) Bill which will soon be receiving its second reading. All those who believe in equality before the law should lend their support to this important Bill.
3) The letter also states that they were represented at a protest ‘against the Olympic Committee’s failure to implement principles of equality and neutrality’.
ICLA is a firm believer in equal rights and equality before the law so will be following the results of these initiatives with keen interest, support them, mediatize them and actively participate in the best of our capabilities in a spirit of openminded cooperation.
One law for all work of resistance and denunciation against societal sharia enforcements are clearly in line with ICLA’s newly launched Brussels Process aiming to protect our societies from Free Speech and Human rights undermining by sharia rules or sharia compliant behaviour enforcement attempts.
Our democratic societies have a duty to ensure equal access to fundamental Civil Liberties and security. This duty has been too long neglected by our European governments in regard to our fellow Muslim citizens, especially toward Muslim women, who have been abandoned to community and politico-religious pressure from sharia proponent acivists.
Sharia oppression must stop in our countries.
To quote the Lord Mansfield edict of 1772 “The air of England is too pure for a slave to breathe”. We need to stay true to the principles of freedom bequeathed to us by our forebears.
