Wilson Chowdhry to speak at protest against gender discrimination by intolerant Islamic nations.

A public demonstration against sport sexism at the Olympic games will be held outside the Saudi Arabian embassy, 30 Charles Street, London W1J 5DZ on 25 April 2012 at 12 noon. (Nearest tube station: Green Park). 

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."


  1. hi wilson,

    great work! i am planning to write a news story on this topic. i have already spoken to members of the international olympic committee and some athletes. will mention you also. keep up the good work.

  2. Thank you for making this a public issue. In fact I am surprised any Muslim nation has any female athletes at all. I'm a fervent supporter of equal rights globally. Keep up the good work -- you are getting your voice heard.
