Statement by SIAWI

Secularism Is A Women’s Issue ( SIAWI) reaffirms its commitment to continue campaining for Badawi ’s release.

Clerics, when holding state power, deny the full exercice of fundamental human rights, such as freedom of conscience and freedom of expression, which are guaranteed by international human rights law.

Secularism protects freedom of conscience and freedom of expression. for all. In view of all the recent attacks on defenders of rights, secularism and secular states should be considered as a necessary pre-condition to the enjoyment of fundamental human rights.
