Article 1 of the International Convention On The Elimination of All Racial Discrimination ICERD states,

‘ …any distinction, exclusion, restriction or preference based on race, colour, descent, or national or ethnic origin which has the purpose or effect of nullifying or impairing the recognition, enjoyment or exercise, on an equal footing, of human rights and fundamental freedoms in the political, economic, social, cultural or any other field of public life’.

I don’t understand why those who proclaim to be the advocate and of Islam would object to this.

One of the things that made Islam beautiful during the time of The Messenger SAW was that it brought equality and gave a voice to the oppressed, it brought witflh it the protection of women and raised their standing in society, it outlawed the killing of baby girls which were so prevalent, it brought a system of social justice and equality that is now sadly absent.

Subhanallah. Nastaghfirullah.
