SET MY PEOPLE FREE TO WORSHIP ME KICKS OFF
NEW HUMAN RIGHTS GROUP FOCUSING ON FREEDOM OF RELIGION
Cairo, Egypt, March 1, 2010 Set My People Free to Worship Me, a new network of individuals, churches and organisations working for the freedom of religious converts to live and practice their faith, to experience equality and justice in their home countries, announced today plans for a worldwide protest march on Saturday (Easter Eve) April 3, 2010 at 12 noon in Australia, Africa, Middle East and Europe.
Founder and Leader, Kamal Fahmi said, Set My People Free to Worship Me is organizing a worldwide protest march seeking freedom, justice, equality and reconciliation for religious converts on April 3, 2010. We want to advocate that all people especially Muslims have the freedom to change faith, to live out and practice their new beliefs.
We are a non-violent movement that seeks freedom for religious conversion, religious worship, marriage and bringing up children. We believe that it is time to support our suffering Christian brothers and sisters from Muslim background and raise awareness of the injustices that they face, added Fahmi. In view of this, we have also started a petition campaign which all people regardless of faith, beliefs and practices are welcome to participate in. We hope to deliver it to various global leaders across the world. The online petition address is http://www.petitiononline.com/2010smpf/petition.html. We are very excited to see what God will do as we obey the biblical teaching - to release the oppressed.
Set My People Free To Worship Me plans to hold simultaneous protest marches in a number of cities around the world at 12.00pm (local time). The movement invites individuals, churches, religious bodies and NGOs to participate in these justice and peace marches in key cities in Cairo, Frankfurt, London, Melbourne, South Africa, Stockholm and Sydney. This will be a yearly event on Easter Eve until the situation changes.
Kamal Fahmi brings a strong background in non-governmental organization development. Fahmi has spent over 20 years working in the Middle East and Africa in Christian based organizations. He has also been involved in advocating on human rights issues throughout the years. Kamal draws inspiration from the involvement of Martin Luther King Jr. in the civil rights movement who said In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
