ACTION ALERT: Free Moazzam Begg!

Moazzam Begg, Outreach Director of CAGE, (an independent advocacy organisation working to empower communities impacted by the War on Terror), and former Guantanamo Bay detainee, who suffered three years of torture and abuse by the US government with the complicity of the British security services, was arrested on the morning of Tuesday 25th February 2014 on alleged Syrian-terror related charges.

Moazzam is an internationally recognised figure on issues relating to due process and human rights. His advocacy on behalf of the Guantanamo Bay detainees has been recognised across the world, resulting in various governments accepting detainees who could not be returned to their countries of origin.

Reports says he was arrested with three other people in the West Midlands (UK); a man aged 36 from the Shirley area of Solihull and a 44-year-old woman and her 20-year-old son, both from Sparkhill in Birmingham, on suspicion of facilitating terrorism overseas. At the time of writing, all  four are being held at a police station in the West Midlands.

This latest action is designed to ensure that any travel to Syria is deemed suspicious. It follows a concerted campaign of harassment against Muslim individuals and charities involved in providing humanitarian aid to the victims of the Syrian crisis.  Moazzam Begg is just the latest individual drawn by the humanitarian catastrophe in Syria who has been labelled a terrorist .The purpose is to intimidate and vilify the wider Muslim community so that they are prevented from delivering much needed aid to the Syrian people.

Complain to the BBC

Both Midlands BBC and BBC News channel showed the Police raiding Moazzam’s Home. The report stated the area of Birmingham and and showed the street name clearly behind the reporter. Some of us rang the BBC to complain and demand it be removed as it endangered his family. The News Channel blurred out the name of the street almost immediately but it was still on Midlands today at 6.30pm. Please write to the BBC and complain about the irresponsible attitude of putting Moazzams Family at risk. (Mary Pearson)

Read Enemy Combatant written by Moazzam about his kidnap and torture in Guantanamo:


Keep Moazzam and other prisoners in your duas 

Please continue to make dua for Moazzam and other prisoners and remember that the dua is the weapon of the believer

And your Lord says, “Call upon Me; I will respond to you.” …(Qur’an 40:60)

In this verse [40:60], Allah has commanded us to ask Him and petition Him, and counted those who do not ask Him too arrogant to worship Allah. From this, it is understood that dua is among the acts of worship, and this meaning was explicitly stressed by the Prophet (saw). Nu’man ibn Bashir reports that the Prophet (saw) said: ‘Dua is worship.’ He (saw) then recited the verse 40:60.
