Chairman of the British Pakistani Christian Association Wilson Chowdhry has been invited to speak out, against the gender discrimination imposed upon Saudi Arabian and Brunei women athletes. Imam Dr Taj Hargey a frequent speaker at BPCA protests has organised the first protest of it's kind in the UK after another Olympics will be bereft of women athletes from these nations.
Wilson Chowdhry said;
"Imam Dr Taj Hargey is known for his indomitable spirit and passion for justice, which has seen him at the fore of the challenge for Islamic reform. He has proposed this protest after yet another disgraceful attempt to undermine the worth of women in the intolerant nations of Dubai and Brunei. The London Olympic Committee simply cannot allow this injustice to prevail, if they truly espouse the vaunted and much lauded Olympic ideal."
Dr Taj Hargey the organiser of the protest and leader of
Muslim Educational Centre of Oxford (MECO) said;
"we urge the British public to support our campaign for Muslim female empowerment by targeting those who subvert pristine Islam. Saudi Arabia and Brunei must be barred from the forthcoming London games because of their blatant sexism. Anything less will be an embarrassing toleration of female discrimination in our liberal democracy and gender equal society."
