Stop Shariah 4 Pakistan Conference from taking place on 30th November 2012
The conference,taking place on 30th November 2012 in Islamabad aims to challenge the constitution of Pakistan and demands its radical Islamization,as well as to issue a fatwa (religious indictment) of kufr (disbelief/apostasy) against Malala Yousafzai and President of Pakistan, Aisf Ali Zardari. We believe it would only further endanger the life of the Child's Rights activist as well as the President,something the organizer of and speakers at conference intend in the first place.
On one hand some of Pakistan's main political parties, including ruling party, Pakistan People's Party, are advocating Nobel Prize for Malala Yousafzai,while on the other hand such a conference is taking place in the federal capital city of Islamabad. We believe if the government refuses to clamp down and disallow such a conference from taking place, it would only be a proof of its hypocrisy and lack of political willpower against known Islamists such as Anjem Chaudhary and Sheikh Omar Bakri, who openly advocate division and hatred in the name of Islam. The fact that the conference is purpoted to take place right under the noses of federal government is worrisome. Allowing such radical Islamists would only act as an obstacle towards a more inclusive, democratic and diverse Pakistan. Therefore we also demand that the visas,if granted in the first place,to Sheikh Omar Bakri and Anjem Chaudhary be revoked immediately. It is requested to both the Prime Minister of Pakistan Raja Parvez Ashraf as well as Minister of Interior Rehman Malik that they act immediately, investigate the claims of such a conference being held and do not allow it to take place.
