Action against Rohit Sardana & Gaurav Sawant for their lewd tweets on holy personalities
The sentiments of Muslim and Christian communities in India and around the world have been deeply hurt by the inappropriate and derogatory words spoken/tweeted by Journalists Rohit Sardana and Gaurav C Sawant against the revered daughter and wife of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and Holy Mary. Rohit Sardana is a Journalist in Aaj Tak of the India Today Group. India Today Group and Government of India are requested to look into the matter and take strict action against them for hurting the sentiments of Muslim and Christian communities and an attempt to create disharmony in the society. While we support freedom of expression but one should understand that there are certain limits to it and it is not equivalent to freedom to insult and cause hurt to the feelings of millions and billions of people.

ABC: host a debate between Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Yassmin Abdul-Magied regarding Islam
On February 13th, during an episode of the taxpayer-funded ABC's flagship current affairs program Q&A, invited guest and ABC contributor Yassmin Abdul-Magied became involved in a heated exchange with Tasmanian Senator, Jacqui Lambie. During the discussion, Ms Abdul-Magied argued that Islam is a feminist religion while defending the implementation of Sharia in Australia. After widespread condemnation of her comments, Ms Abdel-Magied sought advice from anti-LGBT and anti-woman Islamist organisation Hizb ut-Tahrir spokesman, Wassim Doureihi on his private Facebook page. Mr Doureihi criticised Ms Abdel-Magied for her inability to argue Islamic doctrine forcefully and stated that her defence of Sharia was problematic. In response, Ms Abdel-Magied replied: "What specifically was problematic and how can I do better in the future inshallah? I am young, (sic) and willing to learn, inshallah. Trying to do the best with the platform I can, Allah willing.” Mr Doureihi continued that Ms Abdel-Magied had “ended up framing Islam through a secular lens, aimed at a secular people and conscious of the presence of a secular government.” Mr Doureighi then suggested that they continue their conversation in a private message thread. Following the broadcast of the original episode of Q&A, ABC has been targeted with a petition on Change.org by Muslim leaders. "Whilst you may view last night as an opportunity to boost ratings at the expense of fairness and respect to panelists, and members of minority communities, we view the bullying that occurred on last night's TV show as a clear example of further deterrence for Muslim youth to engage in public platforms,” the petition reads. "We demand an apology from Q&A for its poor handling of the debate and for its failure to uphold its values of respect and integrity." In response, a counter petition was started calling on the ABC to condemn and sack Ms Abdel-Magied. We don’t believe that anyone should be fired for exercising their freedom of speech, but we do believe that in a free and open society, ideas should be challenged in as large a forum as possible. Ayaan Hirsi Ali is an outspoken critic of Islam, and in particular, the treatment of women, children and sexual minorities under Sharia. Born in Somalia to devoutly Muslim parents, Hirsi Ali was subjected to female genital mutilation as a child and escaped an arranged marriage in 1992 when she was granted asylum in the Netherlands. Fleeing Europe after the execution-style murder of her friend and colleague Theo van Gogh and explicit threats made against her by Muslim extremists, Hirsi Ali has nevertheless continued her work advocating for the rights of minority groups threatened by the implementation of Sharia around the world. Ms Abdul-Magied is entirely free to express her own opinion about feminism and Islam. We feel it is appropriate, however, that these views are challenged in a public forum by someone more knowledgable, and whose understanding of these issues more nuanced than those of Senator Lambie. Ayaan Hirsi Ali will be visiting Australia during the first two weeks of April as part of her speaking tour. We ask that the ABC host a debate between Yassmin Abdul-Magied and Ayaan Hirsi Ali, on the specific merits or not of Sharia and Islamic doctrine in relation to women’s rights.
Petition to The Prime Minister of Australia, The Parliament of the Commonwealth of Australia
Ban Religious Face Covering in Australia
We, the undersigned petitioners, hereby demand to immediately ban the wearing of the Islamic headdresses (Niqab and Burka) in Australia. These forms of headdress are both confrontational and intimidating to many people in Australia. By wearing the above headdresses persons demonstrate their belief of not integrating with the Australian society, not accepting our culture and lifestyle. It's also a disruptive element within the normal administration of our country, in particular in regards to national security. We live in a country where demonstrating your face to everyone is a part of culture. We believe that newcomers have to adapt to our culture, not vice versa. ______________ Can you chip in $3 to help this petition?

Ramadan 2018 Blackout Challenge: Social Media Fast
As Ramadan 2018 gets close to an end, we want to encourage all Muslims to get closer to God. One of the best ways to do this is by stopping all social media usage during the last few days of Ramadan. We are pushing for a "Disconnect to Reconnect" initiative. Disconnect from social media to reconnect with God. Considering that more time and focus are lost using social media, rather than benefit gained...we are encouraging all Muslims to not just fast from food and water, but to also fast from social media this Ramadan! We truly believe this will make a change in the global Muslim community, the Ummah. It starts with you as an individual. All you have to do is: Sign this petition (which is simply a promise to yourself) Temporarily uninstall all of your social media apps (Instagram, Whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, etc) (Optional) Leave a comment in the pledge form, letting us know one of your favorite charities. Muslim Ad Network will be making $25,000 value in donations to the top 25 charities mentioned in the comments, insha'Allah. (Optional) As your last post on your own social media channels, post a link to this petition form and an image of the #RamadanBlackout provided in the blog post below. It lets them know you've committed to the challenge (in case they are wondering where you are :) ), and helps spread the word so others can benefit, insha'Allah. For more information and details, please visit this blog post:Ramadan 2018 Blackout Challenge
Petition to United States Department of Justice
Create A Hate Crime Law for Muslims
Throughout the world, there has been an increasing amount of constant hate against Muslims. Due to the actions of particular individuals, the entire Muslim population constantly endures racial comments, and physical offense just for their religion. All people have the freedom of religion and we should all respect that and not categorize an entire religion based on a few situations. We want to convince the New York Department of Justice to pass a law to decrease discrimination against Muslims in society; by creating this law, it would create a positive and safe environment where Muslims are allowed to embrace their own religion without the fear of abuse or judgement. It would improve their confidence and mental health as well. Sign this petition to make a change. Your signature may contribute to an extraordinary change for the betterment of our society.

Sheikh Yassir Fazaga needs to stay in Austin. Greater Muslim community of Austin needs him
Austin Muslim Community in general and Cedar park Muslim community in general needs someone like Sheikh Yassir Fazaga. Recent unfortunate events from some minority brothers and sisters in the community caused an escalation in the situation of our beloved Imam Sheikh Yassir and might cause (Allah forbids) the departure of Sheikh Yassir from our community. Let the silent supportive majority's voice be heard and join us in this collective effort to keep the blessing which has been bestowed upon us here in Austin community, Sheikh Yassir Fazaga. We demand a clear explanation from Islamic Center of Brushy Creek (ICBC) about this situation and we demand the board afterwards to do all what they can to keep him around and resolve any tensions which might have caused this kind of unrest and this escalation of events. Here is some of Sheikh Yassir Fazaga's credentials as was posted from the ICBC website back in June 2016 which qualifies him not only to be a religious figure but also a mentor and counselor for the day-to-day issues that any community goes through in life.http://icbrushycreek.org/imam-announcement/ "Sheikh Yassir Fazaga is an inspiring, multi-lingual speaker sought-after across the USA and Canada.

Petition to Stop Religious Shunning
Stop Religious Shunning: Freedom of Religion = Freedom to Leave a Religion
Religious shunning is quite simply a form of religious persecution. We need to raise awareness of the social and economic costs of large and small religious sects who shun and defame those who leave the fold. They may raise a child knowing nothing but that religion, fearing the outside, and forbidding higher education or certain aspects of medical care. Once grown, they may throw him or her out on their own with nowhere to go if he or she does not want the religion, or has nagging doubts about it. Mandating that if parents talk to their grown children who are now “apostates” that they too will be thrown out (a social death penalty and in their mind a literal one fearing Armageddon) is a common theme that needs to end. Shunning one spouse who no longer believes in the faith results in the eventual deterioration of the family unit. This splits the family apart. It is all too common, and it must stop. These sects who hold people or entire families captive out of a fear of loss of all the people they've ever known, thus staying in a group they did not choose on their own are depriving their followers of personal liberty. It is the exact opposite of freedom of religion. This is what we need to change.
