PRESS RELEASE: Global – IHRC expresses concern over arrest and treatment of Lubna Hussain

Islamic Human Rights Commission is deeply concerned about the arrest and treatment of Lubna Hussain and calls for an investigation into the reported mistreatment of those arrested.

IHRC Chair Massoud Shadjareh states:

“IHRC respects each nation’s right to their laws and standards of morality. However, IHRC feels that the current law constricts the broad interpretation of Islamic law and has the subsequent effect of criminalizing many practicing Muslims across the world. The interpretation of moral dress code needs to take into consideration the wider consensus of the Muslim world from Turkey, Indonesia and the sub-continent who wear trousers while preserving their Sharia requirement”
