” Human Rights Defenders throughout the world are in desperate need of our solidarity and support. They are the brave voices standing up for the universal principles of human rights and dignity. They have no physical or political power at their disposal, but only moral power deriving from their brave advocacy of universal principles being violated by powerful actors. Our solidarity and publicity is the only thing standing between them and the brutal power of those velating human rights.
I, and the human rights organizations I am associated with stand fully behind Khurram Parvez and call for his unconditional release from imprisonment. He has violated no laws, and his only crime is his human rights advocacy. His case is well known to us and the Indian Authorities need to know that we will not forget him nor let him lanquish in jail while they aspire to respectability and acceptance as the world’s largest democracy. He must be released forthwith”–
