Human Rights; Islam & Muslims
The Southern Methodist University students association organized an evening event on Human rights from Muslim perspective. Dr. Imam Yusuf Zia Kavacki and I were the speakers.
It was an honor for me to speak with Dr. Kavacki, who is considered an eminent Scholar on Islam in America. He is establishing an institution of higher learning in Islam here in Richardson, Texas. We were a complement to each other and his reinforcement of my statements was a pleasure indeed.
The question answer session was filled with enthusiastic questions; about Madinah Pact, Hijab, Punishment, and Serving mankind without discrimination. We addressed the issues and I will put together some notes about these.
The Cairo summit adopted the Universal Human rights declaration of the United Nations in August 1990 with small modifications.
The following video was inspirational to me and adopted a few ideas from it, it is about 45 minutes and the speaker is powerful. The speech has got a few commercials injected in between. It is worth your 45 minutes.
