PRESS RELEASES

ICC MUST CONDUCT FORMAL INVESTIGATION INTO UK WAR CRIMES 

The International Criminal Court has made the decision to investigate allegations of war crimes committed by UK forces following the invasion of Iraq in 2003.

If it is to have any credibility the preliminary investigation must be followed by a formal probe by the ICC itself rather than, as is likely, leaving the task to UK law enforcement authorities who have proved themselves to be unwilling and incapable of bringing those responsible to justice.

The Autobiography of Malcolm X: Malcolm X inspired as many people in the United States as he caused to fear him. His remarkable autobiography – completed just before his murder in 1965 – tells the story of a young, disenfranchised man whose descent into drug addition, robbery and prison was only reversed by his belief in the struggle for black America, and his conversion to Islam.

The World Is My Home: An Anthology of Modern Iranian Poetry: A great collection of Persian poems by Dr Ahmad Mohit

Thank You O Allah!: A glorious array of Allah’s never ending bounties, evoking a child’s feeling of gratitude for everything Allah has given: from Iman and knowledge, to family and health, from animals and nature, to food and life itself.
