Scrolling news:

Two campaigns for all Muslims in Britain

19th Jun 2015

Sir, I hope your readers will consider the plight of their fellow members of the Ummah in two special situations.The first is that of the Rohingyas in Burma and the tens of thousands of them in camps in Burma and in exile in Bangladesh. In Burma they cannot become citizens, nor can they own land.

In desperation many have taken to small and unsafe boats in order to escape. In this way they have attracted the attention of the word’s media.

The second concerns the Palestinians who took refuge in Syria, often two or three generations ago. For the last three or four years they have suffered increasing persecution from fellow Arabs. The Assad regime has nearly destroyed the Yarmouk camp, or suburb, near Damascus. Yet who outside Syria has protested against this atrocity?

Your journal is known for its campaigning zeal. I therefore trust that your readers will rise up against the injustices that I have mentioned. May I urge them to alert their friends and relations in all countries to these wrongs, which are happening now. The politics of humanity are the same everywhere.

Yours, Hylton
The Lord Hylton
