Tilmelding:

Kvindeundertrykkelse i islam burde ikke være en sag for en ytringsfrihedsorganisation, men såvel rigsadvokaten som statsadvokaten for København og Bornholm har villet det anderledes.

Muslimske kvinders vilkår er blevet en ytringsfrihedssag og Trykkefrihedsselskabet svarer derfor igen på anklagemyndighedens offensiv med en stor international konference.

Efter at anklagemyndigheden er begyndt at retsforfølge mennesker, der gør opmærksom på islams miserable kvindesyn og kvindebehandling, er kvinders status under shariaen blevet en ytringsfrihedssag.

Trykkefrihedsselskabet vil ikke finde sig i, at der er emner, som ikke må sættes under debat. Katolske præsters seksuelle overgreb rydder forsiderne, mens overgreb på kvinder og børn i andre kulturer bliver fejet ind under gulvtæppet.

Det er usselt. Derfor indbyder vi til en stor, international konference, Women under Islam, hvor indlederne vil være blandt verdens ypperste eksperter på området.

Kom og hør den syrisk-amerikanske psykiater Wafa Sultan, der under Muhammedkrisen gav de islamiske retslærde tørt på, den norske menneskeretsforkæmper Hege Storhaug, den hollandske Koranekspert, professor Hans Jansen, der er Geert Wilders’ kronvidne i retssagen mod den hollandske parlamentariker, og vores egen formand, Lars Hedegaard, bryde tabuet om kvindens status under islam.
