“Set My People Free to Worship Me”

 AIM: “Set My People Free” is a worldwide network of individuals, churches and organisations working for the freedom of religious converts to live and practice their faith, to experience equality and justice in their home countries. 

Our aim is to stand up and speak out against the Muslim apostasy law worldwide. Apostasy law violates article 18 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which states that Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion
The protest in Sydney is the first of many protests in key cities around the world. 
 
BACKGROUND:  Thousands of Muslim Converts around the world are being persecuted because they have decided to practise their basic human right of adopting the faith of their choice or none.  
Founder and Leader, Kamal Fahmi said “We want to advocate that all people especially Muslims have the freedom to change faith, to live out and practice their new beliefs.” 
“We are a non-violent movement that seeks freedom for religious conversion, religious worship, marriage and bringing up children. We believe that it is time to support our suffering Christian brothers and sisters from Muslim background and raise awareness of the injustices that they face,” added Fahmi. 
We call for the abolishment of the apostasy law, so that Muslims have the freedom to follow their new convictions without fear, in accordance to the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Rev. Fred Nile, leader of the CDP, Rev. Dr. Mark Durie, human rights activists and Nadia Ghaly, an outspoken journalist and human rights activists will be amongst the speakers on the day.
