1. You must forbid slaughtering animals without humane stunning (shocking), anywhere in the world. This is against humanity, the Quran and Islam.

2. You must forbid forcing religion upon anyone in the world. This is against humanity, article 18 of the Universal declaration of Human Rights, the Quran and Islam.

3. You must forbid stoning as this is against humanity, article 5 of the Universal declaration of Human Rights the Quran and Islam.

4. You must forbid killing homosexual people because it is against humanity, the Quran and Islam.

5. You must issue international arrest warrants for any leaders who ignore these laws, be they religious leaders, president, prime minister, crown as well as judges and all those involved so they can be prosecuted, wherever in the world they are later found.

Animals must be slaughtered in the most humane way possible that scientific progress allows. Everyone must be free to choose their religion or change their religion any time. Please enforce international laws and prosecute leaders who break these laws.

Holding a position of power or following instructions must not make you immune to justice. Unfortunately in recent years such crimes appear to be committed mainly by muslim leaders. As a muslim myself, who has studied the Quran for over 70 years, I feel it is my duty to start this petition.

Change is possible. If international laws exist to issue arrest warrants for leaders that break these laws, at the very least these leaders would not be able to leave their own country without fear of prosecution. I have seen that such actions do prevent crime. In the 1980’s the Iranian Khomeini government started to assassinate their enemies around the world e.g. in Germany and France. The world convicted these three leaders of Iran; Khamenei (the supreme leader), Rafsanjani (the president), Khalkhali (the judge) after this, the assassinations outside of Iran stopped.

Muslim and Jewish religious leaders: WAKE UP! We have had access to stunning for many years yet you are still insisting that animals should be tortured by slaughtering without stunning first – because the Prophets did not stun. The Prophets also did not always have access to pain control or anaesthesia and travelled by donkey and camel but you do not choose to be operated on without pain control or anaesthesia and travel by aeroplane. Where is your logic?

Prophets taught peace and kindness to people and animals and if the Prophets had access to stunning methods they would have used them, without doubt, to promote humane slaughter. Inhumane slaughter is forbidden in the Quran and in Islam. Slaughter without first stunning animals must be forbidden.

وَمَا مِن دَابَّةٍ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَلَا طَائِرٍ يَطِيرُ بِجَنَاحَيْهِ إِلَّا أُمَمٌ أَمْثَالُكُم ۚ مَّا فَرَّطْنَا فِي الْكِتَابِ مِن شَيْءٍ ۚ ثُمَّ إِلَىٰ رَبِّهِمْ يُحْشَرُون  Surah Al-Anam 6, Verse 38  “There is not an animal (that lives) on the earth, nor a being that flies on its wings, but (forms part of) communities like you. Nothing have we omitted from the Book, and they (all) shall be gathered to their Lord in the end.”

There is a very important book for sunni muslims called ‘Sahih Al-Bukhari’ that all sunni muslim religious leaders preach/teach. ‘Maktaba Dar-us-Salam Publishers & Distributors Riyadh-Saudi Arabia’ in 1994 state in Chapter 14 of Summarized Sahih Al-Bukhari that Ibn Umar narrated the prophet Mohammed (ص) as saying : “I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people till they testify that La ilaha ill-Allah wa anna Muhammad-ar-Rasul Allah [none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad (ص) is the Messenger of Allah] and perform Igamat-as-Salat [offer Salat (prayers) perfectly] and give Zakat, so if they perform all that, then they save their lives and properties from me except for Islamic laws and then their reckoning (accounts) will be with (done by) Allah”.

Shia muslim religious leaders such as ayatollah khomeini preach that the world population must become shia and that imam zaman will return and rid the world of anyone who is not and will not become shia.

So, sunni muslims are told to fight against non-muslims until they convert to Islam. Shia muslims to rid the world of non-shias. Both ideas are clearly wrong and aim to convert or kill over 5 billion non-muslims around the globe. Muslim leaders who preach this are wrong and ignore the true teaching of Islam and the prophet Mohammad which is of kindness and humanity to all. The authority for this comes directly from the Quran itself which states :  

1. Those who believe (in the Qur'an), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,- any who believe in God and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve (Surat Al-Baqarah 2:62)

إِنَّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَالَّذِينَ هَادُوا وَالنَّصَارَى وَالصَّابِئِينَ مَنْ آمَنَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ وَعَمِلَ صَالِحًا فَلَهُمْ أَجْرُهُمْ عِنْدَ رَبِّهِمْ وَلَا خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ

2. There shall be no compulsion in religion (Al-Baqarah 2:256)   لَا إِكْرَاهَ فِي الدِّينِ

3. To you be your religion and to me my religion (Al-Kafiroon 109:6)  لَكُمْ دِينُكُمْ وَلِيَ دِينِ   

4. O you who have believed, whoever of you should revert from his religion - God will bring forth [in place of them] a people He will love and who will love Him (Al-Maideh 5:54)

يأَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ مَن يَرْتَدَّ مِنكُمْ عَن دِينِهِ فَسَوْفَ يَأْتِى اللَّهُ بِقَوْمٍ يُحِبُّهُمْ وَيُحِبُّونَهُ      

5. To each among you, we prescribed a law and a clear way. If God willed, He would have made you one nation, but that (He) may test you in what He has given you; so strive with each other in a race of good deeds. The return of you (all) is to God. God will inform you fully about that which you used to differ (Al-Maidah 5:48)   

  لِكُلٍّ  جَعَلْنَا مِنكُمْ شِرْعَةً وَمِنْهَـجاً وَلَوْ شَآءَ اللَّهُ لَجَعَلَكُمْ أُمَّةً وَحِدَة وَلَـكِن لِّيَبْلُوَكُمْ فِى مَآ ءَاتَـكُم فَاسْتَبِقُوا  الخَيْرَاتِ إِلَى الله مَرْجِعُكُمْ جَمِيعاً فَيُنَبِّئُكُم بِمَا كُنتُمْ فِيهِ تَخْتَلِفُونَ

6. God only forbids you with regard to those who fight you for your Faith, and drive you out of your homes, and support others in driving you out, from turning to them (for friendship and protection). It is such as turn to them (in these circumstances), that do wrong (Al-Mumtahanah 60:9)

إِنَّمَا يَنْهَاكُمُ اللَّهُ عَنِ الَّذِينَ قَاتَلُوكُمْ فِي الدِّينِ وَأَخْرَجُوكُمْ مِنْ دِيَارِكُمْ وَظَاهَرُوا عَلَى إِخْرَاجِكُمْ أَنْ تَوَلَّوْهُمْ وَمَنْ يَتَوَلَّهُمْ فَأُولَئِكَ هُمُ الظَّالِمُونَ
