Dear sirs,

Re: Human Rights voilation by Syed Badi-uddin Soharwardy, National President of the

Islamic Supreme Council of Canada ( ISCC) , Muslim Against Terrorism ( MAT) and

Al-Madinah Calgary Islamic Centre Management Committee

We as women and members of the visible minority are writing to you about unfair and unequal treatment given to us at a general meeting convened by the Al-Madinah Management Committee that was chaired by Syed Badi-uddin Soharwardy, National President of the Islamic Supreme Council of Canada (ISCC), Muslim Against Terrorism (MAT), This meeting was held as an open house on Sunday, November 11, 2007 between 3-5 pm at Al-Madinah Calgary Islamic Centre, 5700 Falsebridge Drive NE, Calgary, Alberta to discuss certain serious allegations, community issues and future plans .

We were discriminated as women and were treated poorly, differently, negatively and adversely by the Directors and Officers of Al-Madinah Calgary Islamic Centre, Islam Supreme Council of Canada (ISCC), Muslim Against Terrorism (MAT), Al-Madinah Dar-Ul-Aloom Ltd and Al-Madinah Calgary Islamic Assembly. In this meeting we were treated diferently from men in the following manner:

  • Abusive language uttered towards us;

  • Not permitted to ask any questions;

  • Danied participation as equal members of the Muslim community;

  • Physically and verbally threatened; made to sit in the back of the hall;

  • Accused of disrupting and subotaging the proceedings;

  • Forced to vacate the pemises;

  • Followed-up by obscene and threatening phone calls and letters in the mail.

To enable you to see the proceedings of this meeting , please see enclosed DVD video of the meeting at the open house.

Overall, there was a lack of respect for the women attending the meeting through intimidation, harassment and abusive behaviour.

You are kindly requested to investigate and take immediate action to inform Syed Badi-uddin Soharwardy, National President of the Islamic Supreme Council of Canada (ISCC), Muslim Against Terrorism (MAT), and Al-Madinah Management Committee to halt this descriminatory treatment towards women and to issue a Public apology for defaming and insulting us.

Yours Sincerely,
