Petition to Department of Education, Theresa May MP, Sam Gyimah MP

Interest-free student finance

Its essential that everyone has an equal right to university education. Many muslims in the UK have to make the choice of going against their religious beliefs and taking the loan or not going to university altogether, due to the student loans having interest on them. Interest (usury) is forbidden in Islam. This is problematic for many muslim students as it is a very competitive world out there. In my opinion, a degree helps propel one towards a brighter and more successful future.  It is therefore vital for me as a Muslim student to who is passionate about education to have an alternative method of financing myself whilst at university. The government consultation in September 2014 indicated an alternative finance university tuition fee model would be introduced in September 2016. The government’s proposed alternative finance Takaful model which, whilst being identical to the current interest based model in terms of cost and repayment terms, uses a non-interest based finance mechanism. The government initially planned to introduce this alternative finance by September 2016, it has not yet done so, and has not committed to a date when this model will eventually be introduced. Please can the government prioritise making this happen by September 2018 and recognise the negative impact on many Muslim students of not being able to benefit from a university education. Please sign this petition so that everyone is given an equal right to university without having to compromise their religion.

SAUDI ARABIAN GIRL TRAPPED IN THE HANDS OF ABUSE!

IMPORTANT! A 25 year old Saudi Arabian woman in Riyadh is trapped in a household which promotes a rape culture and abuse through various beatings, threats, violence, as well as depriving her from basic needs such as food, water and medical care. I write this on behalf of her as this is a serious matter that needs immediate attention. I and many private individuals have contacted organisations such as UN women, Amnesty international, Human Rights Watch, Un Refugee etc only for them to ignore our cry for help or they would tell us that they do not deal with "individual cases". The young lady contacted local authorities and shelters for help but they would blame her instead for the abuse or they would turn a blind eye towards her case. This was proven from a variety of emails and proofs of which she provided us with in the hopes that it will spark attention. We call upon each and every individual to be a voice, in order for her to be placed in a safe environment after her endured trauma! She is also willing to testify on behalf of many other women who are trapped in her predicament in the hopes that Officials need to start taking lives seriously! I am desperate for this petition to reach as many people as possible because the young lady is looking through other means such as suicide. Who can blame her? It is obvious that she is mentally incapable and hence I redeem this matter as being serious. I have not provided her full name so that I can protect her identity from any further dangers.  To the humanitarian organisational entities, we call upon you to act according to the promises that you preach on a daily basis! We cannot as a society allow you to weaken the voices of the vulnerable when they CALL OUT FOR YOU!  Furthermore, the whole purpose as to why your entites exist in the first place is to deal with violations that are a threat to human life! If you, yourselves do not follow your own mission and vision statements that you are willingly proud to boast about in public view, you are as bad as the individuals who find the need to cause unrest in society! The abuse of Saudi Arabian Women has been an ongoing issue that never ends. It is an atrocity that shouldn't even be considered a norm. Convenants and policies do nothing for these women as they are still being abused and mistreated in the most horrendous ways. A Saudi Arabian woman must not be killed or placed in a dention centre just because she knows her worth! The Saudi Arabian state must be held accountable for upholding a culture of abuse in its society!  Death should not be, by any means a way of escape for a woman who is oppressed! Stop turning a blind eye to a human rights violation that is killing many.  One Womans death equates to a fallen generation! Women are more than their beauty and their strength, They hold the world in the palm of their hands, therefore we need to rise to the occassion. Saudi Arabian women deserve their freedom. We talk about their freedom, we fantasize about it, we write articles about it and we even create mediocre policies for it but we never ACT on the freedom we so acrively preach about it! ACT! ACT! ACT!     For more info please contact me on the following:  Email: feliciathobeka@gmail.com  Insta: @thobekathobz2.0

Petition to President E.D. Mnangagwa, Boris Johnson MP

Justice From TEMBA PETER MLISWA who illegally seized my company.

Mr President of The New Zimbabwe  Your Excellency  On behalf of my wife and two boys I humbly appeal to the Zimbabwe Government and ZANU-PF for justice through compensation from Hon T.P MLISWA.  He used the previous President (Your Mentor) Robert. G. Mugabe's name in vain for personal Gain / Greed to illegally seize my company Benbar/Tromps! Hon Mliswa claimed the President "Sanctioned" this illegal seizure along with Hon Minister Saviour Kasukuwere (Then Minister of Indiginisation) in line with "indiginization". On 18 December 2009. He wrongfully and illegally seize my companies Noshio Motors (Pvt) Ltd incorporating Benbar/Tromps using a fake "Banda Trust" Mafia style dirty politics and his uncle Didymus Mutasa. He stated he is "Untouchable and above the law" as he is related to you sir? He is obstructing the judiciary from doing their work in a professional manner.  Mr President you "Condemn" corrupt and illegal activities and recently gave a white farmer back the land. The country recently had her monetry budget wooing back FDI yet my companies were illegally seized by Hon Mliswa. My "Crime" white British FDI working with the amazing people of Zimbabwe. I was forced to flee Zimbabwe, with nothing but a suitcase due to death threats on my life and illegally lost my entire investment, over One Million Pounds!  My MP sincerely wrote to the Previous President, AU, S.A.D.C. EU, Brussels, Prime Minister, British Ambassador in Zimbabwe Catriona Laing and the Zimbabwe Ambassador in London humbly asking for their devine intervention.  Zimbabwe has great potential needs FDI and the country can become the bread basket of Africa again save for CORRUPT individuals like Temba Mliswa. I love the amazing people of Zimbabwe, their kindness, warm smile, passion and love for God, willingness to work hard in rebuilding their Nation. What happened to me was wrong, immoral, illegal un-constitutional, against the law a gross violation of my Human and property rights.  My business partner was a Pastor from my church his wife was running the finance and administration departments. I called for a forensic audit which is why they called in Hon T.P MLISWA for his political muscle and powerful connections. Hon Mliswa claims a "Banda Trust" was drafted by his lawyer at the time G.N.MLOTCHWA! However as of February 2010 no such "Banda Trust" ever existed! My lawyer Victor Zvogbo did a search at the Deeds Office. HonT.P.Mliswa, threatened to rape my Belgian wife, kidnap my two Belgian boys and KILL me!! My "crime" FDI. He stole from the Army (Removing new parts from their vehicles and replacing them with FAKE one's), Russian Embassy, Government departments. Hon Joram Gumbo can testify to this. He personally came to see me as Mliswa STOLE his FUEL PUMP and injectors. Anti Corruption came to see me to tell Mliswa was trying to change the Share Certificate.  Didymus Mutasa lied to the previous President. He was Presidential affairs Minister at the time. He made sure his Nephew, son and others were "Aquitted" bribing magistrates Never Katiyo and Morgan Nemadire as well as abusing his office. Johannes Tomanna (who was Mliswa's lawyer in 2000 during the Land Invasions) Prematurely closed my case without allowing FOUR other state witnesses to testify. The whole World knows my story. You are a lawyer Mr President. The FACTS are there. Please may I humbly ask you to summonds Florence Ziyambe Chris Mutangadura, Mr Dube, Mishrod Guvamende the LAW Society of Zimbabwe and Patrick Chinamasa who was Justice Minister at the time. I wrote to them all. Somehow Mliswa seems to be Untouchable and above the law due to his "Political connections". A PRECIDENT MUST be made to show the World that Zimbabwe is definitely open for business and this will NEVER happen again to any other FDI creating employment for the amazing people of Zimbabwe.  I humbly ask and pray for your intevention in order for my family and I to rightfully receive the compensation due to us from ZANU-PF the Zimbabwe Government and Hon T.P MLISWA who was Provincial Chairman of Mashonaland West in the ruling Zanu-PF party at the time he illegally seized my companies Noshio Motors and Benbar.  Benbar was Zimbabwe's Number One Choice in manufacturing and Noshìo Motors was the leading supplier of motor vehicles and accessories to the entire Nation. Hon Mliswa destroyed it over night. Some workers had been there from the time of it's inception in the 90's. New potential investors want to believe the same thing will not happen to them. Hon T.P MLISWA must be held accountable for his own actions and decision for this heinous crime. This is about an investment which I made in good faith in Zimbabwe. I had been working from the time I was 16 years old. I built up these companies created employment only to lose the entire lot to Hon T.P MLISWA's personal greed. He is in breach of the Company's act, Banking act, Criminal Defamation, Obstruction of justice, Abuse of office, Malicious damage to my property, false police reports, interfering with state witnesses, intimidation, harassment, death threats, looting, coercion, manipulation of the judiciary, theft by conversion, defrauding S.A.R.S, ZIMRA, NEC, NASSA, stealing, extortion, forging documents, changing the CR14 and obtaining a new share certificate. I humbly and sincerely ask that as the President of The New Zimbabwe justice prevails. NO-ONE is above the law. No "Sacred Cows" Mr President.  It is my hope and prayer my family and I receive justice through compensation from HON T.P MLISWA and perhaps help in the re-building process. TOGETHER we accomplish more.  We thank you Mr President   Yours Faithfully Paul and Brenda-Lee Westwood
