Hundreds of Women will Gather at a Critical Seminar in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, organised by Hizb ut Tahrir: “One Year On – Who will save the Rohingya Muslim women and children?”

On Sunday the 7th of July 2013, hundreds of women, including journalists, human rights activists, lawyers, representatives of organisations, and other female opinion-makers will gather inshaAllah at an important women’s seminar in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to bring to global media and international attention, the continuing desperate plight of the Rohingya women and children of Burma, and call for an urgent solution to end their suffering.

Speeches on the day will include a talk from the women’s section of The Central Media Office of Hizb ut Tahrir, which will show the failure of the international community and of democracy to protect the Rohingya women and children. There will be talks in three languages and the speakers will describe the plight of the Rohingya women and children and the failure of democracy to secure the blood and rights of minorities, and will focus on the role of nationalism in causing the ethnic violence against the Rohingya and other Muslim minorities, and that Khilafah alone can save and protect the Rohingya women and children and provide them dignified lives. The seminar will include a call to break reliance on the short-term, pragmatic solutions to solve this crisis and motivate the audience to support and join the work for the Khilafah as the only solution to this problem.

We call the media, and all women who sincerely seek an end to the heartbreaking suffering of the Rohingya women to attend this important event. And there will be an opportunity at the end of the conference for the press and audience to raise questions to the panel of speakers.
