Violations towards Children

Human Rights Violations towards Children
Protest against inhumane treatment of children and families

Dr. Asma Salam, we salute you for standing up for the humans rights, in this particular case the ICE Violations. It is a good step, compassion, justice for human kind is our obligation, and we Muslims have to do our part in contributing towards peace and justice, and we are proud of you for taking this step.

A note from Dr. Salam is followed by a note from CAIR Dallas.

On Wednesday May 2nd, 2007 my 5 week protest against inhumane treatment of children and families at Immigration Detention Centers operated by "ICE" Immigration Custom Enforment agency will end, however my efforts to release the pain and suffering of these children, women and men will not stop until we put an end to the violations of human rights in our state of "Texas" and in our homeland "United States of America"

Our religious, spiritual and moral obligations reminds us that we do not have to give birth to feel the pain and sufferings of innocent children and we do not have to be related by blood or marriage to support and help people in misery. The most beautiful relation and the strongest bond we share is the bond of humanity among all of us as we all are children of Adam and Abraham regardless of our color, cast and creed. It is an imperative as human for all of us to defend the human rights and to melt "ICE" and to let our government know that we will not accept this inhumane treatment of children, women and men in our country.

I would like to share these verses by Sheikh Saadi from his book Gulistan (The Rose Garden), written in his honor on the entrance to the Hall of Nations in New York.

Of one Essence is the human race,
Thusly has Creation put the Base;
One Limb impacted is sufficient,
For all Others to feel the Mace.
Sheikh Saadi

Thank you all for your direct and indirect support. May God help us all in uniting and bringing peace and justice to these children and families who have already suffered enough in these immigration detention centers as we all know that none of them deserve a moment to be in this inhumane and unjust environment.

Thank you and God bless you.
This is one of the most popular prayers around the globe by St. Francis of Assisi.

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love,
Where there is injury, pardon
Where there is doubt, faith,
Where there is despair, hope,
Where there is darkness, light,
Where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much
seek to be consoled as to console,
not so much to be understood as to understand,
not so much to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
it is in dying that we awake to eternal life.
